By |

IMG_6554The grilling season continues with the Fourth of July holiday, and Frieda’s, Inc. has some delicious and different holiday favorites.  These colorful suggestions will make your produce department stand out.

“Fourth of July grilling is all about summer traditions like hot dogs and burgers, but consumers are also looking to change things up a bit and make their menu a little healthier by adding more fruits and vegetables,” said Karen Caplan, Frieda’s President and CEO. “They look to Frieda’s to add more flavors and colors to their summer barbecue.”

The grilling season, which kicked off with Memorial Day, continues with Independence Day and concludes on Labor Day weekend. 

Here are some of Frieda’s featured Fourth of July grilling items that shoppers will be looking for in their favorite retail stores:

Star Spangled Spuds

Nothing says Fourth of July like red, white, and blue potatoes!  Parboil them and finish on the grill. Or follow a delicious recipe for potato salad on the package.

Stokes Purple® Sweet Potatoes

Our brilliant colored tubers will liven up any gathering. Cut into wedges or ½ inch-thick slices, toss in olive oil, and put them right on the grill.

Fresh Ghost and Trinidad Scorpion Chiles

No chile lover would pass up the opportunity to test their limits with two of the world’s hottest chile peppers. Use sparingly in a salsa or homemade hot sauce as a condiment on grilled meat and vegetables.

Maui Onions

Brushed with olive oil and grill or served up fresh, no hamburger is complete without these sweet, pungent slices. 

Angelcots®, Fuyu Persimmons, and Fresh Figs

Grilling adds depth to sweet and succulent fruits. They are transformed altogether once wrapped in bacon and grilled, lightly brushed with balsamic vinegar.

Yellow Seedless Watermelons

Simply brush slices with honey and grill until marked. Make into a salad with feta and fresh mint, or just finish with a squeeze of lime for a refreshing dessert.
