I might be in it for the snacks and commercials, but I LOVE a good Super Bowl Party! We’ve spent the past couple of years developing a snack spread that minimizes waste and includes everyone’s favorite goodies!
This recipe was originally posted in 2020. It’s still a family favorite and at the top of our recipe pile these days. The bright, fresh flavors are everything I wish for in a summer dinner. And I love that I get to use the dill and chives from my herb garden too. I even find myself skipping the yogurt and using the bean/pea/dressing mixture on top of a fresh greens salad. If you’re lucky enough to still have peas in your garden or farmers market, here’s a great recipe for you!

They freeze really easily so you can have home-roasted red peppers to cook with all winter.
