Bruschetta with Crostini
This quick and easy recipe couldn’t be simpler. Dice about a pound of tomatoes, I prefer plum or Roma tomatoes, but almost any type will work.

Serve on toasted or grilled, sliced French bread.

Simple Cinnamon-Honey Dip and Apples
Yogurt is almost a ready-made dip on its own, but it’s also easy to fancy up. Mix vanilla yogurt, honey, and cinnamon together. Or grate in some fresh ginger. Or use maple syrup instead of honey. Or use bananas or strawberries as dippers instead of apples. The possibilities are endless.
Cucumber and Hummus Bites
These are simple and easy. Just slice up a cucumber and put a small spoonful of hummus on each one. Add quartered cherry tomatoes and herbs if you wish, feta cheese is another excellent option. You can also mix it up by using different flavors of hummus, such as black olive, artichoke, and even jalapeño if you like it spicy.
