Fire up the barbecue and gather round to celebrate dear old dad this week with a summery menu highlighted by our smoky baked beans and house-blend dry grill rub, plus flavorful, all-natural bratwurst sausages to throw on the grill. These American classics are also accented by a bevy of fresh produce like rainbow Swiss chard, purple scallions and summer squash, plus a fresh-baked baguette and all the ingredients for a summery strawberry shortcake dessert. To Dad!
Here are a few recipe ideas for the week:
Potato Salad with Crème Fraîche & Mint
This unique recipe from Jamie Oliver ingeniously combines fresh mint, crème fraîche and Anaheim chile.
Grilled Turnips with Mint & Lime
The bright combination of mint and lime adds summery appeal to these tender-crisp grilled turnips.
Rainbow Swiss Chard with Lemon Citronette
A light, lemony dressing adds bright appeal to tender Swiss chard.
Charred Purple Scallion Gremolata
This smoky sauce is wonderful atop bratwurst, or slathered on grilled bread.
Strawberry Shortcakes with Honeyed Crème Fraîche
Topped with ripe strawberries, these shortcakes are moist, crumbly and just a touch sweet.
Honeyed Crème Fraîche
This amazing combination is wonderful atop shortcakes or pretty much any other fruit tart!
