Unofficially, Memorial Day marks the first day of summer, the perfect time for outdoor gatherings surrounded by your friends and family. Whatever your plans may be, we have chosen some delicious recipes that are sure to kick start your summer. These three recipes are perfect for your summer afternoon get-together.
Starting off with this fiery, sweet, and savory dish, perfect for a bold appetizer or side! Our Medjool dates are grown by our grower co-op right along the Mexican border, so we got inspired by the flavors of Mexico to liven up our tray of spicy savory Brussels Sprouts. Spice it up with some thinly sliced Fresno chili peppers for an extra kick -but don’t be shy, a little kick really brings the savory flavors alive!
You do not want to miss out on this delicious and bold Medjool Date-infused BBQ chicken. That's right.. infused! This recipe uses a homemade BBQ sauce made with Medjool date paste & Medjool date syrup. The chicken is then seasoned, marinated, and grilled to perfection. You will get tanginess, sweetness, umami, and more out of this recipe.Our secret? Grill your marinated chicken to doneness, and THEN finish off with a quick sear of barbecue sauce. You’ll never grill chicken any other way. Fire up the grill and get to cooking!
Every outdoor get-together needs a refreshing adult beverage to set the tone for the afternoon. Bright, fruity, and oh-so-pretty, our Medjool Date Rosé Sparkler will put a twinkle in your eye. Whether you are a cocktail or a mocktail drinker, this refresher is perfect for the hot summer sun. You can even make these in bulk if you are serving a group of people.
