We have compiled some of our favorite simple, quick and delicious go-to recipes to pack for a day on the water. These can be thrown into a tupperware and packed away in a cooler to enjoy with a group or to stash for yourself. Enjoy!

1 tsp salt

1/3 cup pomegranate arils (i.e., seeds)

1/2 cup toasted, chopped walnuts

1 Combine all ingredients in a bowl. To keep the dip from browning, take a piece of Saran plastic wrap and press it directly onto the guac so no air can reach it.
