I have three, yes, 3 of my own dishes that say Summer from the very first bite in honor of National Berry Month! Using Fresh Berries for an Appetizer, Dinner, and Dessert you can make a whole Summer meal.
For an appetizer, I chose something that is sweet and bitter to your palette.
Using both white and red endive leaves as cups, I filled them with 2 raspberries and a chunk of fresh blue cheese.
Each bite if full of flavor, and makes your mouth ready for dinner.
For a fresh Summer dinner I made Grilled Chicken in a Wine & Raspberry Reduction.
1 1/2 cups Rios de chile wine
1/4 cup unsalted butter
*simmer until reduced in half*
add the juice from 1 lemon
1/2 tsp lemon zest
1 cup fresh Driscoll’s raspberries
1 tsp brown sugar if desired
pour over grilled chicken
serve with fresh lemon slices
For a delicious and fresh Summer berry dessert, serve strawberries dipped in sour cream and brown sugar.
This is also along the lines of sweet and tangy flavors.
1/2 cup sour cream
sprinkle 1 TBLS brown sugar over sour cream
dip fresh Driscoll’s strawberries in sour cream and brown sugar.
The sweet and tangy flavors will make your mouth say “Summer”.
Now you have 3 Summer fresh recipes to celebrate National Berry Month.
Endive with Raspberries and Bleu Cheese Appetizers
Grilled Chicken with Wine and Raspberry Reduction Sauce
And, fresh strawberries dipped in sour cream and brown sugar.
Celebrate National Berry Month!
Enjoy Summer Using Fresh Berries for an Appetizer, Dinner, and Dessert!
Make it a “Berry” good day!
