Fresh Pickings

Nothing beats a platter of cool fruit or crispy vegetables on a hot summer day, perfect for munching as a light, mid-afternoon meal. Here are three easy spreads:

  • Nut Butter: Perfect for more solid foods that can hold up to the texture, nut butters of any kind are great for sliced apples and skewers of celery. Consider adding a small dish of dried cherries to complete the flavor.
  • Hummus: This low-fat option was made for Mediterranean inspired snacking. Try it with tomatoes, cucumbers and a side of pita or crispy crackers. Yum!

Vanilla Yogurt: A fruit-flavor friend, yogurt is so complimentary that even delicate raspberries can hold their own. Pair it with sliced mangoes, blackberries and strawberries. For an extra kick, try it with kiwi!
