Summer get-togethers are incredible. The kids play outside, enjoying the warm air and water toys, and adults are free to socialize over delicious food and refreshing drinks. That said, school being out leaves me with little time to prepare for potlucks and barbecues and, like you, I don’t want to be the parent that shows up with a mere bag of chips or store bought cupcakes! What I bring to a summer party is a reflection on me, and I care about what I present to hosts and hostesses who choose to invite us into their home, crazy kids and all! My go-to side dish to bring to summer get-togethers is this Healthy Delicious, Minty Fruit Cocktail. It’s super nutritious, yummy for both adults and children and it looks fantastic on a table surrounded by the rainbow of usual party offerings.

On summer days when we’ve been invited to a potluck or any other social gathering, I can put together this easy, delicious and super special tasting minty fruit cocktail in just a few minutes. The secret? TAJÍN and cucumber! It’s a fruit cocktail but with refreshing, hydrating, healthy cucumber, pineapple plus an added burst of flavor from TAJÍN fruit & veggie seasoning. And just like that, this dish is a perfect ten.

This side dish always gets rave reviews and it looks lovely too. Feel free to enlist the help of your children in preparing it. It’s simple enough that they can help with all steps from measuring to mixing! And you know they’ll beam with pride when partygoers talk about how truly awesome their creation tastes.
