by in Recipes, Shows, June 9th, 2013

Star vs. Chopped Appetizer ShowdownWe challenged two prestigious groups — Chopped judges and Food Network Star winners — to a summer recipe showdown. All season long, we’ll present head-to-head matchups of mouthwatering summer recipes from each team — from refreshing cocktails to fresh farmers’-market salads to the juiciest backyard burgers. By voting each week here on FN Dish or on our Fan Feed, you’ll determine the winning recipes.

At the end of the summer, the team that tallies up the most wins will celebrate with an all-star Labor Day party menu. Who will prevail as Summer Showdown champion — Star or Chopped?

This week, Guy Fieri and Ted Allen go head-to-head with their easy, crowd-pleasing summer appetizers. Whose will you make for your next get-together? Cast your votes below!

Summer Appetizer Showdown: Guy’s Bacon-Wrapped Shrimp vs. Ted’s Bruschetta With Prosciutto, Ricotta and Arugula

Ted’s summer bruschetta is a perfect last-minute appetizer — it takes just 20 minutes to prepare. He tops crusty slices of baguette with creamy ricotta, salty prosciutto and fresh arugula.

Guy makes a batch of chipotle-spiked barbecue sauce and uses half to baste his skewered bacon-wrapped shrimp, infusing them with even more flavor. The rest is saved for dipping.

Which summer party starter gets your vote?

    Danushka or whatever she needs to go home. She is not Food Network Star. Her voice is so irriating & she does not smile. She looks mad all the time. Send her home.

    Really Danuska is still there! Why?

    Food network keeps her there because they know that the audience is irritated by her. She is one of those people that you love to hate. She will leave eventually.
