Mediterranean Tuna Snack
Ham & Melon Wrap

(Family Features) - If you are like many people, the arrival of longer days and warmer weather makes you want to get outside. A great way to enjoy the season is to invite friends & family for an afternoon snack or early evening appetizers in your backyard or at a local park. The key to outdoor entertaining is to keep things simple:

  • Use colorful disposable plates, cups, silverware and napkins. Not only are they a great way to bring festive color to your spread, they also make for very easy cleanup!
  • Keep the food simple. Try topping Triscuit Rosemary & Olive Oil Crackers with your favorite spread. These crackers, made with 100% whole grain and 0g trans fat, have a delicious flavor that makes even the simplest recipes taste extra special. We recommend "Mediterranean Tuna Snack" and "Ham & Melon Wrap", both take 10 minutes or less to prepare.
  • Relax and have fun! Take time to enjoy your company.
