Picante Pickle Tapenade

A great picnic includes a variety of tasty snacks, and one of our favorites is a savory tapenade with fresh veggies. This tapenade takes almost no time to make and has been dominating our fridge all summer!

Caprese Kebabs

These kebabs are our go-to for a simple snack, and are just as much fun to eat as they are to make! Simply toss some tomatoes, mozzarella and pickles in a jar and pack some skewers for a fun DIY treat.
