Summer Time BBQ - Wish Farms

Summer Time BBQ

School’s out for Summer!  Which means our schedules get a little loose and spending quality time with the kids beats meal prepping and wasting time in the kitchen.  The best way to get a great meal on the table with minimal work is the GRILL – a summer staple.  Toss in a few easy sides and a refreshing drink and you have a simple meal that looks like you’ve been slaving away in the kitchen!

Blueberry Barbecue Sauce

This is a great item to make ahead and have on hand to throw on any protein you stick on the grill! You could even use it for a fresh take on barbecue chicken pizza!


  • 2 teaspoons vegetable oil
  • 1/4 cup onion, minced
  • 1 tablespoon fresh jalapeño pepper, seeded and minced
  • 1/4 cup ketchup
  • 1/4 cup rice wine vinegar

  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon Tabasco sauce
  • 2 cups fresh Wish Farms blueberries
  • kosher salt to taste
  • freshly ground pepper to taste

Asparagus Berry Salad with Feta and Lemon Dressing

Sweet and savory and oh so simple! If you don’t have feta, you can substitute goat cheese or even shaved parmesan!
