SOOO many YESSEESSSSSS to today’s recipe… just so many.
Clearly I am beyond excited about this little snack board. I’ve made it no secret that this summer has been all about good snacks for me…
…example one: summer garden guacamole
…example two: marinated cherry tomatoes with burrata
SIDE NOTE: I spent Thursday, Friday and Saturday in the kitchen for honestly twelve hours straight filming some new, quick, but fun videos for you guys. It was a lot of work, but a lot of fun too. I got to hang with my brother and his girlfriend, whom I don’t get to see very often. We made some really freaking delicious food and then topped the day off by making an awesome new drink ! A new bourbon cocktail is coming your way soon… just sayin!
Anyway, on Saturday we decided to make these marinated tomatoes with burrata on snapchat. I also hosted a fun giveaway! Everyone agreed, it’s safe to say that these tomatoes + burrata are one of our top five favorite recipes of the summer. So simple, so good… you NEED to make them asap…again, just sayin.
…example three: summer fruit plate
…example four: simple summer cheese board
…example five: crostini 6 ways
…example six: farmers market hummus
…example seven: Greek inspired antipasto platter
…example eight: the new crudite’ platter
I know, I know, that’s a crazy amount of appetizers and snacks, but I just cannot help it, snacks are the BEST! Today’s board though, oh my gosh, I am so PUMPED about it. It has hummus, AND cheese, AND fresh figs, AND tomatoes… basically all the best summer produce.
Because I feel like we have a bit to talk about with this board, let’s just dive right into all the details, starting with the hummus. I don’t know if you know this or not, but I wasn’t always a hummus person. For the longest time, I just did not eat it. My parents never liked it, so in turn, it was just never something I cared to try, or make. Well, that all changed last year when I made this hummus board. Hummus quickly became a weekly thing for me. It’s now safe to say I am a little addicted.
Hello, hummus with pita chips, who could not love that?!?
Today’s hummus is verry summer inspired though. Roasted corn, charred jalapeños and topped with toasted seeds. So much flavor happening, and so perfect when scooped up with a salty pita chip or even some fresh, crunchy veggies! 🙂 YUMM.
But um, you guys! There’s more! We’re not talking just one dip, nope. We’re talking TWO, and the second dip involves cheese!
Oh my gosh, totally serious!
Everyone, say hello to honey whipped goat cheese…aka the most addicting dip in all the land… for real.
Obviously you need to be into goat cheese to enjoy this dip, but seeing as we have three goats, drink goat milk every single day, and are about to be blessed with anywhere from 3-8 new baby goats, it’s safe to say we love a little goat cheese at my house.
Best part?? It’s SO easy. Just add goat cheese, Greek yogurt and honey to a food processor and blend. DONE. Serve it up smeared on bread and topped with fruits and veggies. Perfect summer snack/appetizer…or maybe even a Monday night lite dinner?
Yes, totally thinking this Market Veggie Board with Roasted Corn Jalapeno Hummus + Honey Whipped Goat Cheese = dinner tonight. Who’s with me?
Snacks + summer nights…please never let it end!! #summerliveonforever
