With the beautiful sunshine today and with the Summer Season officially here, it is time for us to start thinking about picnics or BBQ's. What a great way to enjoy wonderful foods and socailize with our friends.
Here is an opportunitty for you to start to create awareness that picnics do not have to mean mayo , heavy sauces and sugary treats. What is better then a beautiful Melon salad ( especially at this time of the year when we have so much fresh organic melons available). Just dice some watermelon, honeydew and cantelope, stir it together and your done!! It has amazing sweetness and flavor without adding anything to it.
Skip out on the old fashioned mayo laiden pasta and potato salads and upgrade to a fresh roasted potato and Yam salad drizzled with sea salt, olive oil and red wine vinager. ( Serve chilled) Change up that pasta salad by filling it with veggies, feta cheese and olives again drizzle with very little olive oil , a few herbs of choice, a little sea salt and your set.
Choose your meat carefully! Great cuts offer wonderful tenderness and flavor. Grill some tenderloin, chicken or salmon coated with a little of Braggs All Purpose Soy Sauce and fresh pepper. Great - Simple and CLEAN!!
Looking for Burgers - use extra lean Ground Beef or Turkey, add some feta cheese, fresh basil, pressed garlic, minced onion, sea salt and pepper! Grill it up and serve on half Whole Grain Bun or on a bed of spinach. Perfect!!
I hope you enoy some clean summer BBQ's!!
