Take on Tapas

Small, light bites = the ultimate summer fare

Alone, a small bite is, well… small. But together, scaled-down portions have a full meal in store. Tapas-style eats are pretty much the quintessential summer fare – light enough for noshing come milder nights on the patio.

In our quest for such seasonal, smaller-scale dishes, we came across Skinnytaste.com –  a one-stop shop for all things low fat (and delicious). Founder Gina Homolka‘s food philosophy? “Eat seasonal, clean, whole foods and maintain good portion control. When you cook your own meals, you know you can feel good about what is going into your body.”

Case in point: her Shrimp Salad on Cucumber Slices and White Bean Crostini recipes. They’re both light, fresh, and super-easy to make, so serve them at every get-together this summer. You’ll be known for them in no time.

Our Sunday Supper: Tapas & Antipasti Boutique opens Sunday, May 26, at 11AM ET.
