Mozzarella, Tomato and Basil Skewers
These easy pickings are perfect to snack on this summer! All you need are mozzarella balls, basil leaves, and cherry tomatoes. Also, add some extra-virgin olive oil and some salt and pepper. Thread mozzarella, basil, and tomato onto a mini skewer and drizzle some olive oil, salt, and pepper – voila it’s ready to snack on!
Bite-sized Strawberry and Brie
This bite-sized snack is not only refreshing but easy to make too! To start, make sure you have strawberries, basil leaves, brie cheese, and balsamic glaze. Thread the strawberry, basil, and piece of brie cheese onto toothpicks. When you are done drizzle the balsamic to finish it off.
Who doesn’t like a healthy dip to enjoy? This easy-to-make hummus is a nutritious and delicious snack to create with your loved one. You will need smashed and peeled garlic cloves, rinsed chickpeas, lemon juice, extra-virgin olive oil, tahini, and salt.
