While our summer celebrations may look a little different this year, it’s still the best time to spend outdoors and what better way to celebrate than with delicious (and affordable!) better-for-you food and drinks? I am excited to partner with ALDI to share this ultimate summer spread today on Good Food Friday!
Build-Your-Own Burger and Hot Dog Bar
Now this is a great activity to get the whole family involved that’s fun and produces delicious results. Include Black Angus Beef Burger Patties, the Simply Nature Organic Uncured Beef Hot Dogs and Earth Grown Quinoa Crunch Veggie Burgers for those looking for a plant-based option. ALDI’s expansive Earth Grown line is award-winning and ALDI-exclusive. It includes a variety of vegan, vegetarian and plant-based options including vegan shredded cheese and even Meatless Jumbo Hot Dogs which you can substitute for traditional hotdogs in your spread. Whether you’re doing meal prep for your outdoor BBQ or searching for easy summer meals for the whole family, ALDI really has everything you need to savor summer, without the premium price tag.
Roasted Vegetable Guacamole and Sweet Potato Salad
Now is really the best time to add more veggies into your diet and appetizers are a great way to incorporate them. Serve a roasted vegetable guacamole with fresh cut veggies and a sweet potato salad made with in-season corn, spices and the Specially Selected Gourmet House Vinaigrette. Another great way to enjoy veggies during the summer is to simply throw them on the grill, which really brings out their best flavors.
Lemon Fruit Bruschetta
Next we have a delicious summer dessert! The ALDI Lemon Fruit Bruschetta marries savory with sweet by pairing Specially Selected Goat Cheese with fresh in season berries, mango & kiwi. This recipe comes together in minutes and adds beautiful color to your spread.
Festive Summer Beverages
Finally we can’t forget festive summer beverages. Celebrate the kickoff to summer with award-winning ALDI wines, many of which are under $10. The Giambellino Peach Bellini is perfect for summer and tastes like you are on vacation but my favorites are the Espritza Sparkling Rosé and White Wine Cans. For kiddos, whip up mocktails with sparkling water, Nature’s Nectar Orange Juice and fresh seasonal fruit.
ALDI really has all the summer-spread essentials you love for less, from premium meats to fresh and frozen seafood to festive beverages and fresh produce. What’s great is that they operate more than three stores in the Charleston area so we have convenient access to fresh, high-quality groceries at unbeatable prices saving us time and money.
