Surprisingly Simple Summer Appetizers


When friends are coming over and it’s too hot to cook, whip up one of these no-cook appetizers that are sure to please.

Watermelon Skewers

Watermelon, goat cheese and basil make for a super simple appetizer. The salty goat cheese complements the sweetness of the melon.

¼ large watermelon
4 oz. goat cheese
One small package fresh basil leaves
½ cup balsamic vinegar
Cocktail skewers or toothpicks

Cut the watermelon and goat cheese into bite-size cubes. Stack the watermelon and goat cheese on a skewer, placing a piece of basil leaf in between. Drizzle with balsamic-vinegar reduction. (To make the reduction, pour ½ cup balsamic vinegar into a small saucepan and heat, stirring occasionally, for a few minutes until thickened.) Makes about 25 skewers.

Chunky Avocado Dip

6 avocados, cut into ½-inch chunks
1 can black or pinto beans, drained and rinsed
1 can corn
½ cup diced onion
1 cup green salsa
Salt to taste

Combine ingredients and chill for at least an hour to blend flavors. Serve with baked tortilla chips.
