8 Clean Summer Finger Foods

Summertime is an ideal time for eating clean. The typical season cuisine calls for lots of grilling, salad-eating and fresh fruit-munching. That doesn’t mean you’re limited to dining strictly fork-and-knife style, or stepping outside to eat watermelon without getting juice on the floor. Eating clean in the summer time can be easy and both types of clean. These 8 finger foods are perfect for simple summer snacking. The best part is, they’re small enough to grab a whole handful.
