Sensational Summer Entertaining

Jul 20, 2015 02:37AM ● Published by Family Features

(Family Features) From backyard grilling to days spent lounging by the pool, summer is a beloved time of year for many. Summer entertaining doesn’t have to be a challenge, and with these tips from Sunsweet you can enjoy quality time with family and friends while maintaining a healthy lifestyle.


Hawaiian Pulled Pork Sandwiches
  1. Grilling Tip: Marinating before grilling helps to tenderize and flavor the meat. Get creative; experimenting with different seasonings and combinations is fun. In fact, prunes and prune juice are great flavor-enhancing additions to marinades that also provide lots of great moisture retention in meats. Marinate meat for at least three hours in a sealed container in the refrigerator prior to grilling. Check out this recipe using prunes as part of a tangy BBQ sauce, providing both moisture and flavor.

Prune Rice Salad

  1. Salads: Lettuce doesn’t have to be the star of the show when it comes to salads. Make-ahead cold salads are a delicious option for summer, and they allow you to enjoy time with your guests as they can be stored in the refrigerator until serving. Prune Rice Salad is a fun and colorful dish everyone will love.
