How to set up a summer snack tray

Today’s summer snack tray inspiration and shopping trip has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #DipintoMeze #CollectiveBias
Memorial Day is right around the corner and while we don’t have anything spectacular planned, I do want to be prepared if guest drop by.

My plan to just relax in our backyard for the day, but if we happen to get a call from family member who wants to drop by, I want to have a few things on hand for flavorful simple snack.

Using fresh veggies, bread, fruit, lemonade and Chobani Meze yogurt dips, I can have a snack tray ready in 15 minutes. 

Chobani Mezé™ Dips are new flavored 10 oz.  dips that come four unique flavors.

  1. Roasted Red Pepper (a better-for-you take on the #1 hummus flavor)
  2. Three Pepper Salsa (for those looking for more peppers/chilies/spice in their food)
  3. Smoked Onion Parmesan (a modern and healthier spin on French Onion dip)
  4. Chili Lime (lightly spiced, a modern take on Ranch)

I’m keeping these ingredients in the fridge in case I have to create a last minute light snack for Memorial Day. It’ll be semi packaged and semi fresh, but will make my guest feel much more special than if I just pulled out a bag of potato chips and said, “here’ya go”.

I’ve been a fan of Chobani’s greek yogurt since it hit the market and love using it to make my tzatziki sauce. The biggest pull for me when it comes to Chobani products is the fact that I can recognize the ingredients. If you’re a label reader like me, you’ll definitely want to try these Chobani Meze Dips.

Meze is a Turkish word (pronounced “meh-zay”) which means a tasty, flavored, snack. It’s usually represented by a small plate of savory food, paired with yogurt and served before or part of a great social gathering. 

Since I have everything on hand, let me show you how I will pull together my Memorial Day snack tray.

1. The first thing I do is gather up servings trays and containers to display the food. I use cake platters, mason and milk jars to serve the food in.

2. Then, I prep the bread and veggies. The bread is sliced about an inch thick and the veggies are chopped into finger food sized pieces. The dip is easy to serve right from the container, but I remove the Chobani Meze yogurt dips from their packaging and put them into lidded glass jars. Once everything is prepared, I put them onto the cake pans.

3. Next, I make a beverage that will look pretty in glasses. I made pink lemonade and add frozen  mango and pineapple to it.

4. Once everything is prepped, it’s moved to the family room table where we usually sit with guests.

After chopping the bread and cucumber, the tray itself only takes about 5 minutes to assemble and style on the table. 

Chobani Meze snack trays are perfect for summer parties, picnics, bbq’s, or sitting by the pool. They’re even good to have in the fridge for impromptu gatherings or good-for-you snacking.

I found all four of the Chobani Meze flavors at my Harbison Blvd. Walmart in the Deli section not dairy. Before your head out to fine them, use the following link to print a coupon for $1 off Chobani Meze Dip.

      1. I haven't seen these dips in our stores yet, but I want to try them. the roasted red pepper wounds delish!

      2. i love chaboni, i will have to try this out soon. it's such a great idea to use as a dip.

        1. Big Chobani fan here too which is why it made sense to try these. I like being able to recognize the ingredients on the label.

      3. I need to come hang out at your house this summer! That looks amazing!

      4. Wow, I like the setup! If I am your guest, I will definitely love and got impressed! Nice ideas!

      5. I already love to eat veggies, but those dips make them even more enticing to me!

        1. I agree and the great thing is the dip is veggies too (plus Greek yogurt) Super good for us!

      6. This is great! I love making snacks for our kids in the summer.

      7. It's a great idea – love all the choices you have – first thing I gotta learn is how to make all of that 🙂

        1. Nothing really to make except for the strawberry lemonade. Cheat and buy the concentrated variety where you just add water. The dips are from the Deli section and can be paired with anything. Super easy!

        1. I didn't even think of that, but it's true. The sweet strawberry lemonade paired well with the rich and savory flavors of the dips.

        1. I get them from time to time and fee weird not serving something. This makes it super easy.
