Who doesn’t want to make a slam dunk snack for March Madness?! A tasty party food that is over the top crazy good, compliments burgers, brats and hot wings and kinda healthy. Is that even possible?
Is it worth the risk of introducing something so new to such an established tradition that began at a YMCA gym in Springfield, Massachusetts in 1891? Back before basketballs even existed, Dr. James Naismith was asked to think up an indoor “athletic distraction” for a bunch of rowdy schoolboys? If we really think about it, this time of year when we all stay glued to watch a sport we love, it all started with our children’s health in mind. It humbly began with a modified a game that involved throwing a ball into an elevated peach basket. The game of basketball was born, and over the years it has evolved from distraction to national obsession.
But even mighty sports fans have to eat.
So here’s an easy to make and even easier to eat finger licking good snack you can add to your game plan. Remember, a March Madness get-together isn’t some fancy tea party, it’s a celebratory game plan to cheer on your favorite team!

Notes: Substitute the cauliflower florets with broccoli florets. You can make your own “buttermilk” by mixing 1 cup of milk with 1 tablespoon of white vinegar and letting it sit for 15 minutes.
