Grilled Buttermilk Chicken Tenders with Dipping Sauces

Chicken tenders grill quickly—almost too quickly, resulting in dryness. But not with these skewers, which benefit from a buttermilk brine and a blanket of bacon. Serve them with a choice of two dipping sauces—a creamy ranch and a spicy romesco—that pair nicely with crudités, too.

Greek Layer Dip

Serve this zesty Mediterranean spin on traditional seven-layer dip with pita chips for a delightful party starter.

Loaded Potato Bites

Think of this finger food as mini loaded baked potatoes. Peewee potatoes are boiled, smashed, and roasted until crispy and golden, then finished with a flavorful mix of all your favorite toppings: sour cream, scallions, bacon, and cheddar. They're just the thing for an Oscar-night or Super Bowl party.

Hearts of Palm Dip

Rating: 5 stars 2
This zesty little appetizer is going to have everybody at the party guessing the secret ingredient. It doesn't get that creaminess from avocado, or that crunch from edamame. Give up? It's hearts of palm. The core of the tropical plant is mild and sweet, with a tender bite similar to that of artichoke hearts. No need to mention it's super-healthy. Just set it out with some chips and crudités, and bask in the compliments!
