Easy Summer Snacks & Redmond Salt Giveaway!

Instead of spending a lot of time cooking in the summer, most people are trying to relax and have fun. Since everyone still has to eat it’s important to have simple healthy snacks around. It helps to make some quick and easy recipes in the summer so that you don’t fall back into the habit of unhealthy convenience foods. There are a few snack recipes that we make over and over this time of year because they are easy, fast, and tasty.

Redmond Salt was generous enough to share with me a set of their seasoned salts, which I have been using in a lot of these snack recipes because it’s an easy addition. We are also giving away a Redmond Organic Seasoning Gift Set to one lucky reader! Entry is at the bottom of this blog post.
