Turn Up The Heat With This Summer with this Menu
Blog Details

It’s FINALLY summer. In Boulder, Colorado, where our offices are located, the weather this time of year is predictably fickle – blue skies and 80 degrees on Wednesday, two feet of snow by Friday. But we don’t let the roller coaster climbs diminish our welcoming of tank tops and flip-flops. Summer is a state of mind, and we’ve got just the menu (and playlist) to set the mood. So, dust of the lawn chairs, shovel the patio, light the grill or fireplace and soak it up.

The Menu

Snacks
Sriracha Chili Kale Chips
Turn the heat up (but not too much) with these seriously addictive organic kale chips. The good news, no assembly required, just crack a box and the Party. Is. on! The challenge? Keeping them around.

Rosemary Harissa Nut Fusions
Tart cherries, apricots, cranberries, almonds, cashews and walnuts, oh my! Plus, the exotic heat of harissa (a spicy chili pepper paste) and earthy, herby rosemary? What’s not to love?

Main
Mango and Pineapple Stuffed Chicken Burgers
Whether you’re grilling outdoors or on the stove, Memorial Day isn’t complete without a burger. Switch it up with healthier ground chicken and Made In Nature organic mangoes and pineapple.

Spicy Mexican Vegan Burger from Sweet C’s
We must give credit where credit is due. Sweet C came up with these, and we bow down to her culinary genius. They’re spicy, juicy, tangy deliciousness ready in only twenty minutes.

Sides
Southwestern Ancient Grains
We’re going south of the boarder with this one, and roasted tomatoes, sweet corn, red onion, poblano pepper and mango are the name of the game. Even better, it’s ready in only 60 seconds. Don’t worry, we won’t give away your recipe.

Tart Cherry, Apple & Cabbage Slaw
This rainbow side dish features green and purple cabbage, carrots, apple, and Made In Nature organic dried tart cherries with a light honey apple cider vinaigrette. It’s almost too beautiful to eat – almost.
