Easy and Healthy Snacks When the Heat is On

Fall is on the way, but there’s still plenty of heat ahead!  In this read you will discover several refreshing snacks that only require two to three ingredients each. These snacks are perfect to make for one person or many people.

The most refreshing treat is sliced tomatoes, with fresh mozzarella drizzled with balsamic vinegar. Add some fresh basil for an added kick of freshness. This dish is so easy it can be prepared in merely minutes. Choose this dish to help you cool off on a sweltering day!

Sweet and savory is a delightful combination. Take a fig and cut it in half. Add a small spoonful of goat cheese. Wrap the fig and cheese with a small slice of prosciutto and hold it all together by placing a toothpick through the bite sized snack.

For another sweet and savory combination, slice green apples and top with a white cheese, such as white cheddar, Gouda or brie. The savory cheese pairs wonderfully with the sweet freshness of the apple. Feel free to add some fresh turkey to this little snack, to transform it into a bite sized savory sandwich, sans the bread.

Make a simple summer salad with diced tomatoes, diced cucumbers and toss in Italian dressing. After tossing the mix, refrigerate for thirty minutes then serve. Feel free to add fresh chopped basil to the mix. This can be eaten with a spoon or spread on a crispy crostini.

Throw some fresh berries in a bowl. Strawberries, raspberries and blueberries work nicely together. Drizzle with honey and serve with plain yogurt. This is a healthy snack that taste like a treat. It taste even better if the honey is warmed up a bit. The coolness of the berries taste great with warm and sweet honey!
