Summer’s in full swing, which no doubt means weekend trips to the farmers market. If you’re like me, you go from stand to stand, purchasing just about everything you lay eyes on because it all looks so.darn.good! If you find yourself with too many berries and too little time, we’ve gathered delicious recipes so you can gobble up your bounty of berries before they spoil.
Triple Berry Whipped Goat Cheese Bruschetta
Perfect for brunch or as an appetizer, this beautiful and simple Triple Berry Whipped Goat Cheese Bruschetta from The Cookie Rookie strikes the perfect balance between sweet and savory. Honey and soft cheeses form a delicious creamy base, while fresh berries add a juicy burst of flavor. Drizzle with balsamic glaze, sprinkle with chopped basil and enjoy!
Berry Lemonade Popsicles
For a refreshing treat that’s also healthy, Creme de la Crumb has you covered. These Berry Lemonade Popsicles combine sweet berries and tart lemonade for an icy summer snack that’ll cool you down during the heat of the season!
Berry Stuffed French Toast
Creamy, berry-filled goodness oozes from the center of Inspired by Charm’s Berry Stuffed French Toast. From the first bite, you get the delicate sweetness of drizzled syrup, mixed with the mild tang of cream cheese and juicy fruit, all wrapped up in wonderfully crusty French bread. This update on a classic will take your breakfast from dull to delicious!
Blackberry Balsamic Glazed Chicken
Now, you can perk up your protein with The Food Charlatan’s Blackberry Balsamic Glazed Chicken – just in time for grilling season! Place the chicken and mashed blackberry mixture in an air-tight storage baggie, then refrigerate and let marinade for at least four hours. Top with warm blackberry glaze after grilling and serve with standard summertime staples, like corn-on-the-cob or potato salad.
Triple Berry Pretzel Dessert
This three-layer salad from Miss in the Kitchen is better than the strawberry pretzel dessert you grew up with. The traditional pretzel crust and fluffy Cool Whip middle are the same as you remember, but the difference is in the topping. This Triple Berry Pretzel Dessert is a tasty make-ahead treat, perfect for backyard barbecues and summer parties!
Glazed Mixed Berry Scones
All you need is one mixing bowl and a little bit of prep work to make these rich Glazed Mixed Berry Scones from Averie Cooks. The flaky pastry dough is a great base for adding a variety of sweet or savory mix-ins – the sky’s the limit! – but ripe, juicy berries add a beautiful wash of color in this particular recipe. Drizzle with a scrumptious glaze, grab your morning coffee and enjoy a leisurely breakfast.
Summer Berry Fruit Salsa
I’m addicted to pineapple salsa, but this Summer Berry Fruit Salsa from The Slow Roasted Italian might just be the next best thing! Loaded with fresh fruit and swirled in a tantalizing raspberry sauce, this mouthwatering salsa can be served with toasted cinnamon pita points, in oatmeal, or even scooped up by the spoonful!
Rhubarb and Mixed Berry Galette
Baking a galette is easy as pie – easier, actually, and the Pint Sized Baker shows you how! Start with a premade pie crust disk, then add fresh fruit, sugar, flour and cornstarch. Brush the crust with an egg wash and pop your Rhubarb and Mixed Berry Galette in the oven! Serve warm with vanilla bean ice cream.
