So this week and next, we are bringing to you our favorite dog friendly and person friendly Big Game football appawtizers! Ready? Set! Eat!

This next recipe uses cauliflower as the dip’s base. Is cauliflower good for dogs? Cauliflower is healthy for your dog to eat! It is a good source of fiber, vitamins K, vitamin C, calcium, potassium, and folate. These vitamins support the health of your dog’s vision, blood, liver, muscles, immune system, and more. Fiber is good for your dog’s colon health, weight issues, and bowel issues.
