Healthy Versions of Traditional Party Foods
Fried chicken at a spring graduation party is delicious, but, instead of frying the chicken and adding the calories from the oil and breading, use skinless chicken breasts and grill them. Add plenty of taste by including a Walnut sauce, Peach Salsa or a Parsley-Caper sauce for your party guests to choose from.
Grill beef tenderloin, with the fat trimmed off. Dry-rub a mixture of black pepper, lemon peel, olive oil, salt and crushed garlic into the meat, tuck the thin ends of meat under, then grill it for a tasty main course for your party guests.
Instead of a traditional potato salad made with mayonnaise, whip up a warm potato salad with bacon and arugula. This dish features red-skin potatoes, a vinaigrette made from Dijon mustard, bacon and arugula lettuce. 
Rather than using ground beef, which can be fatty, substitute with ground turkey. Flavor the turkey with ground, dried herbs, pepper or salt, add canola or olive oil to the grill and cook the burgers. Pair them with buns, lettuce, tomato, onions, pickles and avocado slices.
