Grilled potatoes with garden-fresh vegetables is a colorful, fun way to enjoy a quick and easy meal on the patio. Try this savory, healthy dish from Chef Antoine Sicotte: slightly sweet Blushing Belle halves on skewers, mixed with tender marinated chicken over a bed of Greek salad (cherry tomatoes, cucumber, red onion, feta and kalamata olives). The topper is the tangy dressing, spiked with lemon, oregano and Dijon. Serve this meal with a side of grilled pita bread.
This light and appealing meal-in-one dinner is fast and focused on fresh flavors. Scale it for just you two, the whole clan or a party with friends. And if you don’t want to heat up the house, just cook the casserole in a metal dish on the BBQ with the lid closed. You can also make the sauce in advance when you have time and refrigerate for up to one week. Whip up the refreshing mint-yogurt sauce, then toss together the ingredients (Creamers, summer green beans, plump tomatoes, bell peppers in various colors, kalamatas and herbs), then lay the fresh salmon fillets over top and garnish with lemon slices, and roast in the oven. Squeeze on more lemon juice after baking and serve.
Salads can be blah, but not this one. Refreshing on hot nights, this easy to make, layered BLT Salad recipe mixes fresh romaine lettuce, juicy ripe summer tomatoes, creamy avocados and crispy bacon. We added our Blushing Belle Creamer potatoes so you can round this healthier version of a BLT into a meal-in-one. To keep it simple (and the house cool), prepare the Creamer potatoes in the microwave. They’ll cook in just five minutes, no washing or peeling required. Layer the ingredients, then drizzle with the home-made creamy Ranch dressing or to save time, pick up your favorite Ranch dressing from your local grocery store. This recipe makes for a versatile side dish, or whole meal if you increase the serving size, that your family will ask for again and again.
Tip: To save time with any recipe, use our microwave ready packages. They come in their own microwave-safe container that will steam potatoes perfectly in just five minutes.
