Fire up the barbecue and gather round to celebrate dear old dad this week with a summery menu highlighted by our smoky housemade BBQ beans, spicy pickled okra and corn muffins from Snohomish Bakery, plus locally-made, small-batch BBQ dippin’ sauce and house-blend dry rub to accent whatever you decide to throw on the grill. These American classics are also accented by a bevy of beautiful summer greens, ripe local strawberries and other fresh produce like baby red potatoes, Shiitake mushrooms, sugar snap peas and baby golden beets.
Here are some recipe ideas for the week:
Golden Beet & Snap Pea Salad
This colorful salad is perfectly complemented by a lemon-honey vinaigrette.
This lovely vinaigrette is bright with lemon juice, sweet honey and fresh parsley.
Oven-Roasted Shiitake Mushroom & Vegetable Salad
This room temperature salad is also wonderful served over grilled slices of polenta.
Buttermilk Ranch Potato Salad
Tossed with a plethora of fresh herbs including cilantro, dill and chives, this potato salad is incredibly fresh-tasting.
Grilled Turnips with Mint & Lime
The bright combination of mint and lime adds summery appeal to these tender-crisp grilled turnips.
Strawberry-Rhubarb Coffee Cake
A fitting dessert after a meal honoring dad!
