American’s love summer fun. According to market researcher Rasmussen Reports, reading and playing games are the summer’s most cherished activities. Close behind in its 2010 telephone poll, however, is hosting a cookout or barbecue.
Whether it’s because of the fantastic taste or the stimulating company, grilling is a popular way to pass the dog days of summer. So what are you waiting for? It’s time to call up friends and family, fire up the grill, and start making your own summer memories.
Put back those drab hot dogs. Grilling offers many other menu options that will wow your taste buds as well as those of your guests. We suggest our Apple Cider Grilled Baby Back Ribs for a memory-making experience. For a new take on kebabs, try our Fresh Fruit Kebabs or serve up bananas grill-style with our Grilled Bananas recipe.
Of course, grilling isn’t the only way to serve up delicious and nutritious foods in the summer. It is also a great time of year to experiment with salads. Salads are a cool and refreshing way to beat the heat.
For a choice more exotic than ordinary garden greens go for our Asian Cole Slaw with Radishes and Miso Dressing recipe. Another way to infuse international flavor into your recipe repertoire is to serve up our Greek Pasta Salad, a culinary treat featuring a mix of penne pasta, red onion, cucumber, tomatoes, olives, feta cheese, lime juice and a few other select flavorings.
If you are feeling like a meal that hits more close to home, pull out our Chicken Fruit Salad recipe. A delightful mix of multiple ingredients, many of the key components can be culled from your garden, like leafy greens and raspberries.
Sometimes comfort food is what you crave, and GourmetRecipe.com can help you there too. For a tasty snack, serve up Beer Battered Onion Rings while you watch your favorite movie.
Or recreate our Brussels Sprouts with Bacon recipe, an unusual pairing of ingredients with unusually great results.
