Disclosure: I received free samples of Cabot Cheddar Cracker Cut Slices as mentioned in this post. I was not expected to write this review nor was I compensated for my time. Opinions are my own,
Summer should be easy. ..as in air dried hair, bare feet, and cut offs. Summer meals should match the carefree spirit we embrace this season. I’m happy to share that the good folks at Cabot agree and are making summer effortless with their award winning cheese in packages of 26 cracker cut slices. No slicing required! So open a package and make an appetizer with or without the cracker!

I also used 2 of these Cabot cracker cuts on my latest grilled entree that combines fresh cinnamon basil, berries and cheddar over grilled chicken. What’s not to love about this?
