Memorial Day Weekend, the true beginning of summer! Your only task over this long weekend should be to prop your feet up and enjoy a glass of wine, along with a tasty appitizer at arm’s reach (which, in our dream fantasy, would contain zero calories). But with a busy May, who wants to spend time making appetizers to serve over the weekend. Instead, we’ve found a few delicious bites from stores where you are probably shopping already. Just throw one or two of these ready-mades in your cart in you are good to go!
100% Salsas Veggie Refried Beans and Salsa Roja
This local salsa company has a great zesty flavor and fresh ingredients. Serve the veggie refried beans with a little bit of melted cheese on top. Or, if you have the extra time, make a layered dip with sour cream and guacamole. Don’t forget the chips!
Diana’s Apple Wood Smoked Salmon
Lucy’s Market makes it easy to grab and go with a big selection of dips, spreads, and meals. One of our favorites is Diana’s Smoked Salmon. The salmon is so fresh and flaky and it has an unbelievable smoky flavor. Pick up Diana’s Herbed Aioli and fresh crackers from Lucy’s to go alongside and you have a beautiful appetizer!
Friends are always raving about this Palmetto Cheese Dip from Publix. Available both with or without jalapeños, it is a perfectly creamy adaption of good ol’ pimento cheese.
You can find more dips then you ever imagined at Trader Joe’s! These are a few of our favorites, but there are plenty of more to choose from.
Happy Memorial Day eating!!
