There’s a sweet spot in a summer’s day as afternoon slips into evening. It’s in this unfussy slip of time that summer entertaining was made for—outside, with friends, enjoying the weather. Dinner can wait. All you need is an array of cheeses, fruit and crackers. Pair it with a refreshing California wine and you’re done. Instant happy hour. Tina Thayer and Kelly Briglio of Paradise Pantry in Ventura offer up some ideas for an easy mix-and-match summer snack that will give you more time to relax with your guests.

Tina’s wine picks:

2013 Sauvignon Blanc (Pomelo, Oakville)
2013 Grüner Veltliner (Vino V Wines, Ventura)
2015 Viognier (Jaffurs Wine Cellars, Santa Barbara)
