1. Blackberry-Gin Fizz
A hint of lime perks up the dark recesses of blackberry juice, while gin brings out its flowery perfume.
Now that fresh, seasonal tomatoes (which are, in fact, berries) are finally loading up, you’d better make as much and as many variations on this chilled soup as you can!
3. Arugula Salad with Nectarines & Fresh Raspberry Vinaigrette
Raspberries are a natural pairing with any stone fruit & bottled dressings have nothing on this one with freshly mashed fruit.
4. Grilled Chicken & Polenta with Nectarine-Blackberry Salsa
Make the most of summer fruit by spilling it over charred meats in a wonderfully acidic salsa with lime and cilantro.
5. Raspberry Buttermilk Sherbet
Fruity, tangy and supremely creamy, this is the perfect summer refreshment, made sophisticated with a dusting of cracked black pepper.
