Pool Snacks! : Sponsored by Tyson Toppings

So our new summer routine involves going to our swim club as much as possible. Swim clubs are big in the Midwest. It was a totally foreign concept to me, being from the South where your own pool is practically a necessity. Here in Missouri, people join a local club that maintains the pool and grounds. You pay a joining fee and then a yearly fee. This is our first year and we are trying to get our money’s worth.

That often involves going for a couple of hours in the late afternoon or around dinner time. The husband and I may never get in the pool but we enjoy sitting outside watching the girls splash around and play on the awesome playset. We all eat dinner there before heading home. Packing a dinner that pleases all taste buds and is portable can be challenge. So I was happy to get the chance to try the new Tyson Toppings line and create a few fun and easy meal solutions with the salami. Hope you enjoy!

The Ingredients
Tyson Topping Recipe Ingredients

The Snacks
Use pretzel chips, small pieces of cheese, and salami to make stackers. We pack each ingredient separately and assemble at the pool. These are a huge hit with kids and adults!

Salami Panzanella

Panzanella is my go to summer dish! It’s easy to make and everyone loves it. I added salami to my pesto panzanella. You can make this recipe in less than twenty minutes!

Pressed Tyson Toppings Salami Sandiwches

Pressed sandwiches make the ideal pool food, they can be thrown into any kind of bag (squishing only makes them better) and can be cut on location according to each person’s appetite. Just remember to wrap tightly!

Note: These are great just to throw in a bag to take the the pool or to run errands. I love that it is resealable!
