July is here and that means long, warm days full of backyard entertaining, pool parties and fun in the sun. Whether or not you’re loving the heat, most of us can agree that we’d rather be relaxing with friends and family than preparing a time-intensive meal. That’s why we’re bringing you three easy recipes that require little time in the kitchen but are BIG on flavor. The best part? No oven required.
Grilled Cherry and Oregon Blue Cheese Salad with Creamy Hazelnut Dressing
Move over hamburgers and hot dogs, we are breaking out the grill for cherries. That’s right, grilled cherries add a sweet, smoky flavor to this salad full of hearty greens, roasted hazelnuts and tangy blue cheese. Serve with a crisp glass of Oregon Riesling for a light summer meal.
Cold Brew Hazelnut Smoothie Bowl
Give your cup of coffee an upgrade with our Cold Brew Hazelnut Bowl. Made with hazelnuts, banana and instant espresso powder, we can assure you this is the sweetest way to start any summer morning.
Vanilla Yogurt Parfait
Add flavor and texture to your favorite vanilla yogurt (we suggest Tillamook Vanilla Bean Lowfat Yogurt) by topping with fresh berries and crunchy Oregon hazelnuts for a nutritious breakfast or midday snack.
