Includes Three Delicious Recipes
Honey Soy Chicken Skewers with Caprese Salad
Skewers are delicious either broiled in the oven or grilled – either way rewards you with a quick and tasty summer dinner on the table in under 30 minutes. Our chicken thighs are perfectly tender and are bursting with the flavor of sweet honey and savory soy sauce – a winning combination (for a kick, add crushed red chili flakes or Sriracha to the marinade). Sweet and juicy nectarines round out a fresh Caprese salad, drizzled with balsamic vinaigrette. Kids will have fun creating a colorful pattern with the slices of tomato and nectarine and layering with mozzarella and basil leaves.
Grilled Asian Steak in Lettuce Wrap
Asian marinades typically contain soy sauce and a sweetener, like honey or mirin (a Japanese sweetened rice wine). This recipe is similar to our South Korean Bulgogi but instead of chicken, we use lean flank / skirt steak instead of fattier cuts. Pan seared or grilled to perfection, thinly sliced, and placed on top of crunchy and fresh lettuce wraps, it is a perfect dish for anytime of the year! Peppery radishes garnish the wraps and a tangle of rice vermicelli / rice provides the perfect vehicle for sopping up any delectable steak sauce. Top with crushed red chili flakes or any combination of fresh herbs for extra flavor (optional).
Grilled Fish with Kale Caesar Salad
Traditionally Caesar salad is made with romaine lettuce, but we shake it up by using hearty and fibrous Tuscan kale for a healthy and filling dinner salad. We shred the kale into ribbons and toss it with a savory Caesar dressing, toasted pine nuts, scallions, and currants. We top it with sautéed/ grilled blackened rubbed salmon, which is rich in omega-3s and powerful antioxidants, and presto! You have a superfood "traditional" Caesar salad. Be sure to massage the kale (a fun activity for kids!) so that the kale tenderizes and absorbs the dressing.
Summer Peach Cobbler
Is there anything more Summery than a peach cobbler? Cobblers can be baked or stewed on a stove top, made with dried, canned or fresh fruit - but they are always topped with batter or biscuits! It was the creation of early American settlers from Europe who adapted their traditional pie recipes to local ingredients and harsher living conditions. Settlers moving West didn't have ovens, so they improvised by layering fruit into a Dutch oven, topping it with batter/ biscuits and cooking it over an open fire. Serve our hint of nutmeg peach cobbler with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream (optional, but strongly recommended!).
