15 Summer Snack Boards for Easy Entertaining | The Health Sessions

What’s nicer on a warm day than grazing snacks all afternoon or pick and mix bites for a light meal?

Aside from being tasty and festive, summer snack boards make it easy to cater to different food preferences (except for serious allergies of course). What’s more, these healthy platters often require little cooking – which is a big plus when it’s hot outside! You can also do the chopping and prep work ahead of time, so you can better pace your energy for social gatherings.

You can make your summer snack board as simple or elaborate as you want, with any ingredients you love, based around a specific cuisine or seasonal produce. It can be served as an appetizer when you’re lounging with friends or as a fun shared dinner with your family.

To build a meal-worthy snack board, star some healthy proteins (fish, deli meats, cheese, boiled eggs), add colorful vegetables and fruits with a matching dip, and choose some fiber-rich carbs if you like. Finish it off with a crunchy element like nuts, bread sticks or plain tortilla chips.

Get inspired by these 15 summer snack boards for easy entertaining – and pick and mix the bites you like!
