We are ready to welcome the official arrival of summer - Memorial Day! Summer at Kosterina means warm weather, backyard BBQs, and quality time with family and friends.

Olive oil has always been at the center of mealtime, and mealtime at the center of family. This weekend, we'll be gathering around the table to catch up on all the moments missed from this past year. 

Here's what is on the menu this weekend (and hopefully yours, too!). It's a smattering of Mediterranean-inspired dishes you can enjoy indoor, outdoor, by the beach or anywhere you choose to celebrate!

Appetizers

 Greek Style Air Fryer Chicken Wings:  Our wings are always a crowd-pleaser. These are made with fresh herbs and chunks of feta for a salty, creamy punch. 

Creamy Roasted Eggplant and Tahini Spread:  This vegan spread pairs perfectly with vegetables and warm pita. A no fuss dish the table is guaranteed to love.

Dark Chocolate Balsamic Vinegar Watermelon Feta Salad:  Never met a BBQ without watermelon. This salad is the perfect balance of salty and sweet. 

Grilled Corn Summer Salsa:  We're all about getting spicy - and this salsa has the perfect combination! Fresh corn, jalapeño peppers and loads of Kosterina EVOO. Serve with your favorite pita or tortilla chips!

Sweet Potato Fritters:  Warning: these are likely to be gone in seconds.

Mains

Greek Turkey Burger:  If you're looking to change up your burger game- this is it! You can make these inside on a skillet or outside on the grill.

Lime-Garlic Chicken Kebabs:  This dish is a blast of flavors, and you guessed it - really simple to make. 

Fresh-Herb Marinated Grilled Vegetables:  Fresh grilled veggies remind us why BBQ season is the best. We added tasty herbs and the grill gives these that nice smokey flavor. 

Spinach Salad with Goat Cheese & Strawberries:  A family favorite! Light, flavorful and dressed in a delicious Kosterina Honey Garlic Vinaigrette.

Desserts

 Olive Oil Cupcakes with Dark Chocolate Balsamic VinegarDense, moist and a chocolate lover's dream. The olive oil makes each bite moist with a rich chocolaty flavor.

Olive Oil Brownies:  We love to pair these with vanilla ice cream as the perfect summer treat on a hot day.

Drinks

Fresh Strawberry Granita:  This refreshing, cooling drink is exactly what you'll need for the hot weather. And the best part? It only has 4 ingredients - two of which are fruit!

Grilled Shrimp Skewers require minimal effort--just a drizzle of Kosterina Greek Herb & Lemon Olive Oil and a few sprinkles of salt, pepper and dried oregano before they go on the grill.  We love to serve them with our Panzanella salad, chock full of garden vegetables and super crunchy Kosterina croutons.

Making pizza at home is easier than you think.  Our (basically) no knead dough comes together in minutes in a food processor and our secret ingredient to a super flavorful result is our Garlic Oil.  Make a double batch because this dough is perfectly freezable too.
