I absolutely love summertime. Besides having an unwavering love of warm weather and flip flops, summer is a favorite season of mine for entertaining. Hosting outdoor dinner parties or just spontaneously having people over for wine and appetizers on warm summer evenings is so much fun.

So when Breton Crackers sent me a sample of their new Artisanal Sweet Potato & Ancient Grains crackers with the challenge of creating a summer friendly appetizer, I jumped at the chance to create a new go-to appetizer.

Let me start by saying these Sweet Potato & Ancient Grains crackers are amazing! The cracker is tender and crisp in texture, making it a great base for an easy, summer friendly appetizer.  They are also delicious! The crackers are full of flavor and made with ancient grains like quinoa and rye, with sweet potato pieces baked right in.

To keep it simple, light, and refreshing I wanted to use fresh flavors and ingredients we tend to have on hand. So, I actually went into the garden for inspiration. I picked fresh cucumbers, parsley and garlic to create the Cucumber Herb Relish. I added a little olive oil, salt, pepper and cherry tomatoes and placed it on top of some creamy, ripe avocado slices for the perfect cracker bite!
