This is a great meal served together. However,it can be served as a big "fill me up" snack, when a big football game has your attention. The Bacon Wrapped Dates can be keep warm and the salad can be keep in a warm and cook area to put together at half time. Both are soo delicious and filling. Also, it is very nutritious. It's a food you can talk about as long as you talk about the game...ENJOY
