Every Summer Shindig 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.
Our secret? Grill your marinated chicken to doneness, and THEN finish off with a quick sear of barbecue sauce. Keeps things from burning while ensuring the chicken is cooked through. We’ve put Medjool dates in both the Marinade and the sauce – you’ll never grill chicken any other way.
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. You are in charge of the heat (from the Fresno chili peppers) – but don’t be shy, a little kick really brings the savory flavors alive.
Mostaccoili looks just like penne pasta, just with a smooth (instead of ridged) surface. Either will work just fine in this great-for-groups summer pasta. Bright tomatoes are offset by rich Medjools dates to keep lips smacking and hungry families satisfied.
Bring out a tray of these salad jars and wait for the ooohs and aaahs. Pretty and inviting, your guests just lightly shake up their salads before pouring out onto their plate – no wilted greens sitting out in the sun!
