Football fan-guy friendly veggie dish??

My boyfriend is having some friends - and their girlfriends - over to watch the Giants next Sunday. It is not a big to do, maybe twelve of us, so I am keeping it simple. I am making my Grandma's Sweet and Tangy Meatballs with bowties and Honey Glazed Wings on the grill. I would like to add a veggie dish - maybe these beer drinking guys won't care, but I want a veggie dish! Any suggestions that would work well in this sitch? Thanks!

  1. Maybe a spinach gratin? A friend of mine makes Ina Garten's recipe all the time, and it's amazing.

    1. How about a coleslaw in a sweet and sour vinaigrette dressing?

      1. Stuffed potato skins with some low fat cheese, broccoli, plain yogurt and salsa

        Stuffed mushrooms

        Baked veggie tempura--crust veggies in panko batter/crumbs and bake

        Low fat spinach artichoke dip

        Artichoke Heart and Hearts of Palm salad

        Tomato, Red Onion, Cucumber and Balsamic Salad
        Tomato, Mozzarella, and Basil Salad

        Lentil and Veggie Salad

        ...Hope some of that helps!

        1. well...the grill is on so why not grill some veggies? you could also grill fruit.
          hummus and veggies is easy, cheap, and healthy (i bet a few guests will appreciate that).
          black bean, corn, and mango salad is ridiculously easy- make it the night before and the flavor is even better.

          1. Spinach/Artichoke Dip and homemade corn chips?

            Grilled veggies and rice?

            Salad seems to appeal to any lady...I know, I am about just serving a small salad bar with some basics that the girls AND guys can pick from to create a side salad?
