A colorful coleslaw is a great addition to your Super Bowl spread. This Asian-style slaw is a colorful mix of red cabbage, jicama and carrots, with an added kick from a citrusy dressing made with Kikkoman Lime Ponzu.

*To make candied walnuts, place 1 cup walnuts and ½ cup sugar in a skillet over medium

walnuts. Remove skillet from heat; stir in ½ teaspoon vanilla and ½ teaspoon cinnamon.

Spread walnuts on aluminum foil to cool.

Super-Slow Super Bowl Tips

There are so many crowd pleasing dishes that were just made for slow cooking, from stews and chili to

meatballs and paella. Use your own favorite recipes, or try a new twist on an old standard.

• If you’re entertaining a group, make it a “slow-cooking potluck”—guests can

transport, reheat and serve their dishes in the same pot they’re cooked in.

• Soups are a good pick for Super Bowl parties, and a hearty French onion soup

is a welcome warm-up for the February chill. For deep, rich flavor, add a little

Kikkoman Roasted Garlic Teriyaki to the onions when you caramelize them.

• Don’t forget to have some snacks and nibbles on hand to munch during

the action. Make plenty of spicy party nuts with Kikkoman Teriyaki

Marinade & Sauce—they’ll disappear fast!

• Use a small slow cooker to keep cheese dip or artichoke dip war m

throughout the game.
