Sunday, June 18  is Father’s Day!  Start the celebrating early with a surprise breakfast or brunch skillet. Aunt Nellie’s Baby Beet & Potato Hash with Chorizo will keep everyone satisfied until the late afternoon barbecue that many families will be hosting for Dad.



Dad’s grilled steak, chicken, sausage, chop or whatever he favors, deserves a great accompaniment, and READ Salads and Aunt Nellie’s Vegetables have some other ideas that the guest of honor will love. Check out: Bean, Tortellini & Pesto SaladBean Salad Stuffed TomatoesBeet & Corn Salad and  Beet & Avocado Salad.  They’re so easy to make, you might want to choose a couple! Plus they can be made ahead and refrigerated until serving time.



If you don’t yet know what to serve, Southwestern Marinated Chicken with Bean Salad is a perfect choice for the dad who likes food on the spicier side.  The liquid from the can of Southwestern Bean Salad, accented with lime and garlic, makes a spicy marinade for the chicken. Add chopped tomato and cilantro to the bean salad, and you’ve got a delicious side salad.  The recipe can be doubled if you’re feeding a crowd.



So, plan the menu and get ready to celebrate Father’s Day with Dad…deliciously!
