June's here, and the summer season is just starting to heat up. You may be spending your weekends soaking up sun by the pool, gearing up to wind down on vacation, or maybe you're enjoying some much needed time off with friends and family.
In any case, summer holds endless opportunities to reconnect with loved ones. From hosting backyard barbeques to cooking up family dinners, no one understands the importance of home-cooked meals and bringing people together better than Food Lion. So grab that grilling apron and take out those tongs; it's time to get your grill on with our easy, fresh and affordable in season savings.
For a simple appetizer that's sure to crowd-please, look no further than veggies and hummus. Coat whole, peeled carrots, broccoli, zucchini or any other vegetables of your choosing with extra-virgin olive oil. Dash some salt and pepper on your selection, and then toss the produce on the grill. Serve the grilled vegetables with a bowl of Food Lion's Taste of Inspiration hummus.
Stay fueled up through those long summer nights with a variety of Food Lion's fresh protein offerings. For easy preparation, try our Cedar Plank Atlantic Salmon filets which come seasoned with garlic and herbs, or opt for lean chicken breasts to be easily prepared at home with some salt and pepper. Drizzle extra-virgin olive oil on your choice, and then put the meat on the heat. Once cooked, spread pesto over each piece and then serve your low-calorie, low-carb entree.
Accompany your meat with some sweet potatoes and asparagus on the grill. For a flavorful flair, sprinkle your sweet potatoes with cinnamon and your asparagus with parmesan, and squeeze lemon over the greens.
Satisfy your summertime sweet tooth by grilling up some colorful, nutritious fruit kabobs. Chop up some bananas, pineapple and peaches, and then finish the fruit chunks with cinnamon and brown sugar. Take turns alternating the pieces of fruit onto skewers before putting on the grill. You can cool things down by serving the skewers over a scoop of vanilla bean ice cream. Enjoy a dessert bursting with flavor without bursting the bank.
