Let's face it: game-day is the most hectic day of the week. Whether you're waking up early to get the best spot in the parking lot or running around trying to get all the essentials for a long day of tailgating, sometimes you just don't have enough time in your day to cook elaborate food for football fun. With these healthy, no-cook snacks, you can cut down on the time it takes to be prepared for tailgating as well as not worry about the calories piling up by the end of the day.
Avocado Chicken Salad
Portable, festive, and easy, tailgating snacks should be uncomplicated and crowd-pleasing. If you're looking to get out of cooking and cut corners a little, steer clear of greasy potato chips or fat-laden bean dips and reach instead for these no-cook tailgating snacks.
This particular chicken salad recipe uses vinaigrette instead of mayonnaise but doesn’t lose its creamy texture, thanks to avocado. Salsa and fresh cilantro give this chicken salad its south-of-the-border flavors. So, instead of layering over a bed of greens, serve with tortilla chips for scooping and an added crunch.
