As summer picnic and barbecue season winds down, make your next seasonal dish stress-free with a no-cook appetizer that’s perfect for potlucks or cookouts.

Our weekend recipe comes from Ingrid Hoffmann, host of Simply Delicioso on the Food Network and author of Simply Delicioso: A Collection of Everyday Recipes with a Latin Twist.

“Entertaining doesn’t have to be a time-consuming and tiresome process,” she says. “With a few ingredients, you can create simple and tasty recipes.”

Best of all, this healthful recipe will appeal to both children and adults. All of the ingredients should be available at your local natural and organic food store.
