This past weekend, I celebrated the end of summer in Maine. I've been going to Maine every summer since I was a baby and it's by far one of my favorite places on earth. We have a cottage that was built in the late 1800s that has the most stunning view of the Atlantic.

One of my favorite parts of the whole house? Our giant porch.

This house is a place my family has gathered for four generations and the porch is probably where we spend most of our time. A standing tradition we have is to have wine and appetizers on the porch, as we watch have a few epic games of cornhole and watch the sun go down.

As we say goodbye to summer, I wanted to share one of my absolute favorite “appetizers” that I always make when I'm up in Maine. A summer hummus board, filled with loads of fresh, summer produce, some crackers/pretzels and hummus.

How to Make a Hummus Board

I'm excited to be partnering up with Sabra to share this hummus board recipe with you because I think it's the ultimate party dish. Not only does it take about 10 minutes to make, can be made with pretty much any combination of ingredients you want, looks pretty and it's healthy!

Just like a meat and cheese board, hummus boards consist of a few different things that come together into one fabulous spread. When I'm making my boards, I want to be sure I have a balance of ingredients: some healthy veggies, some crunchy/carby cracker type thing and of course hummus.

For this board, I went to the farmer's market and picked up a few different raw veggies, then used some of my favorite gluten-free crackers and pretzels and finished it off with a tub of Sabra's Roasted Pine Nut Hummus.

Just arrange them on a cutting board or cheese plate (I used a slate board) and fill in the gaps with your ingredients. If you want a full tutorial on creating the ultimate snack board, check out my Snack Board 3 Ways post!

Ingredients for our Summer Hummus Board

What I love about summer is how much produce is available! But as our season changes, the bounty at the farmer's market definitely starts to dwindle.

Here's what I was able to pick up last week and used for my hummus board:

  • Carrots
  • Radishes
  • Baby peppers
  • Heirloom cherry tomatoes
  • Striped tiger zucchini

And then, of course, we also added on pretzels, crackers and our pine nut hummus!

The Ultimate Summer Appetizer

This is by far my favorite thing to serve during the summer. I love that it doesn't involve any cooking on my part, there's something for everyone on the plate and it's totally customized to what I can find at the store.

You really can't go wrong when you make a hummus board – just find some veggies, pick up some crackers and pick out your favorite Sabra hummus flavor!
