Hey Friends. It’s our last week of school before summer break officially starts. I know many kids still have a few weeks left of school but Memorial weekend has always felt like the unofficial start to summer. It’s the perfect opportunity to gather with friends and family, relax by the pool and gather ideas for how exactly you’re going to entertain little ones all summer long.

Today I have an appetizer to share that’s festive for Memorial Day and perfect for really any summer gathering.Hummus is always a crowd pleaser and it’s certainly a favorite in our house. It’s fun to mix up the flavor options every now and then to give it a little pizzazz. This beet hummus, with it’s vibrant color, is a healthy and vegetarian friendly option. Beets are high in vitamins, minerals and fiber and the beans provide a good source of protein. To check out the recipe go to my friend Tawnie’s blog at Kroll’s Korner to get the recipe.
