Summer is right around the corner which means it's time to start prepping the deck for outdoor gatherings galore. I love to have friends and family over, fire up the grill, and enjoy dinner and an icy beverage outside. We spend time talking, laughing, and of course, eating! I try to serve simple and delicious food that doesn't take hours to prepare and is easy to clean up. The beauty of grilling is no pots or pans to clean, and I often make pasta salad, coleslaw, or other salads beforehand so they're ready when company arrives. I also like to serve dips alongside chips and veggies for snacking before dinner is ready. Again, anything that can be made or prepped ahead is key here.

This Spicy Avocado Hummus is a family favorite and something that I have in my frig quite often. Cannellini beans, fresh avocados, cilantro, and a few other ingredients get blended together to create a mouthwatering dip that is packed with flavor. It takes just minutes to make but can also be made ahead of time. Storing the hummus in Casabella’s Guac-Lock keeps it fresh for days. The container is easy to use and portable, plus the chip container doubles as a serving dish. It's nice because you can use the Guac-Lock bowl with our without the container.
