Father’s Day is Sunday June 20, 2010. Father’s nationwide will be celebrating with their families with fun and plenty of food.
Most dad’s love to barbecue, so why not help them out with some great grilling suggestions from Melissa’s.
Try some of dad’s favorite veggies on a skewer, brush with a little olive oil and place on a low grill until they are tender. Dad and everyone else will love them. You can also grill some fresh fruit like pineapple, tomatoes, and grapes for an interesting combination.
Serve these skewers with burgers, chicken or even veggie dogs! Add some freshly grilled corn, a green salad and you are all set. For your favorite salad, start with your favorite mix of greens; don’t forget about radicchio, spinach
, arugula, and watercress. Toss greens together with fresh cucumber
wedges and sprouts for a wonderful, light salad. Sprinkle with balsamic vinegar, salt and pepper. For a heavier meal, toss with cold pasta (like linguine or angel hair).
The first day of summer is June 21, 2010. Melissa’s organic fruits and vegetables are a great way to create summer snacks, salads and main dishes. Strive to eat five a day to stay healthy and trim.
Substitute Melissa's meat alternatives, like vegetarian ground round, hot dogs and burgers to replace regular meat products. All are low fat with no cholesterol and have a great flavor. Use them to create fast, easy and healthy summer dishes.
