Sweet Pea Hummus Bites And Cherry Lime Cheesecake Bites For A Summer Party
Sweet Pea Hummus Bites And Cherry Lime Cheesecake Bites For A Summer Party – made wit Dare Cabaret And Dare Breton Original Crackers. A sweet and savory appetizer option for your next summer part.
When summer comes, I’m very excited because of the endless summer parties, barbecues, birthdays and picnics.
Since I live in a place, where summer is short and we don’t get a lot of sun and warm weather, through the rest of the year I don’t want to miss any opportunity for entertain outdoors and spend time with family and friends.
As I’ve mentioned before, when I plan a party, I usually use trusted recipes, that I’ve tried in advance.
These recipes should require simple ingredients (preferably seasonal) and minimal effort to make. Because who needs the extra stress of a failed recipe, when you have people coming over and need to to a ton of things before that. Not me! Not right now!
Today I’m sharing with you two options for a sweet and savory snack, made with Dare Crackers.
These Sweet Pea Hummus Bites taste great for a snack on their own, but with a few simple ingredients, you can transform them into elegant appetizers to serve to your guests.
You can also take them to a picnic, serve them at a graduation party, summer birthday or a holiday celebration.
Dare Cabaret crackers are so buttery and flavorful, so they paired well with a sweet pea hummus dip that I made. I also added some creamy burrata and prosciutto to make these Sweet Pea Hummus Bites extra delicious!
And since every party needs a sweet snack, I made it using Dare Breton Original Crackers. I topped them with creamy lime cheesecake dip and fresh cherries and turned them into the perfect mini dessert.
Dare crackers are a must have, if you are planning to throw summer parties and would like to serve effortless but good looking and delicious appetizers.
Pair them with your favorite toppings or even use them as an ingredient for a simple recipe of your choice.
Make some refreshing drinks and enjoy your time with family and loved ones.
Do you have a go-to appetizer recipe for a summer party? I’d like to know about it!

I love summer parties too! That sweet pea hummus is so creative and perfect for a backyard barbeque appetizer!
Oh Mira, I know exactly what you mean when you say that you live in a place where you really appreciate the good weather when it comes. Same here in Maine! When the day is warm, all I want is some good time with family outdoors. Loving these delicious cheesecake bites–they’re perfect for outdoor family fun times. 🙂 Pinning!
I want to come to your summer party! I think I could eat this sweet pea hummus all day long!
Mira, these appetizer bites look so good!!!! LOVE the sweet-pea-hummus!!! wow, that a fabulous idea! and love the crackers too!
Summer entertaining is the BEST, right??! I’m with you though, I will never use a party as an excuse to test a recipe… knowing my luck the recipe would be a fail! lol. While I do love an elegant dinner with a breathtaking main, I much prefer little bites in the summer for a party and these are just PERFECT! Love that you did a savory and a sweet bite, Mira! Both are just beautiful and absolutely delicious! I will be serving these at my next soiree! Pinned! Cheers, dear!
This is how I like to eat when entertaining and I love Dare crackers.
The sweet pea hummus sounds like a wonderful dip, Mira – I love tahini!
And the cheesecake topping is a cool idea, too.

I am definitely eating with my eyes first on these little gems! The colors are just so beautifully vibrant and scream of summer! I’m totally loving your flavor combinations too. I can’t imagine a summer party without these gorgeous bites!
Mira, I don’t think I’ve ever had a sweet pea hummus – it sounds delicious and perfect paired with Dare Cabaret crackers – the perfect summer get-together appetizer!
