“A great summer snack with cocktails outdoors is a pesto made with artichoke hearts,” Goss said. This appetizer can be prepared a day in advance and stored in the refrigerator. Simply allow the pesto to come to room temperature 30 minutes before serving.

- 2 teaspoons minced garlic
- 1/2 cup pine nuts
- 2 cups canned artichoke hearts, drained
