Grilled Chicken with Fresh Cherry Sauce

There are three things that come to mind when I think of the 4th of July: The American Flag, fireworks, and grilling. While I hope you will be waving your flag and attending a fireworks show, I can assure you that your barbecue will be amazing with this grilled chicken with fresh cherry sauce.

This recipe incorporates the fresh fruit of summer. I make this sauce in the winter with dried cherries, but I thought why not make it with fresh cherries for the summer. The sauce is thick and silky and adds a sweet, tangy flavor to the chicken. When the cherries cook, they soften a little, but there is still a fresh bite, which is so refreshing with the chicken.


Arugula Citrus Salad

This arugula and citrus salad is the perfect light winter dish. The fresh grapefruit and orange segments paired with the peppery arugula are topped with crunchy toasted hazelnuts, tart pomegranate seeds, and Parmesan cheese. The fresh salad is tossed with a mustard salad vinaigrette. The combination of flavors and textures make this salad one of the best I have ever had.

With bright red, green, and gold colors, this salad is not only a burst of flavor, but is a feast for the eyes, too. This would be a perfect salad for a first course for any holiday dinner party.

Grilled Skirt Steak with Cilantro Chimichurri Sauce

Food possesses a magical quality. It can take us to far away places and let us learn about cultures that we might not get to actually visit or experience. This grilled skirt steak with cilantro chimichurri sauce can transport you online casino to South America for a fun and festive barbecue.
Grilled meats are a staple in Argentine cuisine and are often accompanied with chimichurri sauce. I put my own spin on the traditional parsley and oregano chimichurri and made a cilantro version.
With steaks sizzling on the grill and sangria glasses clanking, my backyard was transformed into a vibrant argentine barbecue. If I only knew a good tango partner, then my night would have been complete!

Salmon Burgers and Homemade Tartar Sauce

I swear I am not totally burger obsessed! First the black bean burgers and now these salmon burgers and homemade tartar sauce. I wasn’t even paying attention and bought an eight pack of burger buns! Actually, I’m glad the lifeless buns were sitting on my kitchen counter. They inspired me to use the salmon I had in my freezer and make these burgers. I paired them with my award winning tartar sauce – it really did win an award in my culinary school class! While exploring the foods of Great Britain, I made fish and chips and this tartar sauce.
