Looking to jazz up your NFL tailgate repertoire? Look no further.

“I love putting a twist on classic recipes, and this recipe for pomegranate-glazed wings elevates wings to a whole new level. This recipe is so full of flavor,” Rania Batayneh, MPH, author of the book, The One One One Diet. “The pomegranate juice brings antioxidants and a sweet-tart flavor base, and sumac and a red wine vinaigrette balance perfectly with apricot preserves and honey. This is a great healthy protein side to balance carb snacks that we typically eat on game day.”

Need a beer pairing? Batayneh recommends accompanying these wings with a not-overly-hoppy beer (such as a pale ale, lager or even Guinness) since the wings have a sweet-tart flavor from the POM glaze.
