Sizzling with savory and sweet

Sizzling with savory and sweet

When savory meets sweet, it’s simply a perfect union — especially when planning a sizzling summer time menu. Nothing brings the palate more pleasure than a cooked sausage, slightly seared, and topped with crunchy, fresh salad and salsa toppers. Recipes, including one for Cheddar Wurst with Corn Black Bean Salsa (above), on C2.

Snack solution

There you are, late at night, craving both pretzels and peanut butter. You could attempt to spread the peanut butter on the pretzels, but the better angels of our nature are pretty sure that, in that direction, disaster is not far off. Peanut butter is a little too thick for dipping. Well, run to the store and get Keebler’s new Filled Pretzel Bites — little pretzel mounds filled with peanut butter. They come in fudge-coated, too.

Bean chips

Not all chips begin with potatoes, especially in the case of Beanitos, bean-based chips from Austin, Texas. “PurposeFULL Snacking For Human Beans,” boast the 1.25-ounce packages that also note that, among other things, they’re “Corn Free,” “Gluten Free” and “Non GMO Verified.” Each weighs in with 6 grams of protein. Tasters favorites among four flavors: Pinto Bean & Flax Chips Cheddar Cheese and Black Bean Chips. The suggested retail price is $1.29. For a store locater or to buy, go to
