Summertime, and the livin’ is . . .

Summertime gives many of us a chance to slow down, relax and generally take it easy.  Neighborhood picnics, barbeques, family reunions and other get-togethers are high on our to do list.  We want to help you keep it quick, simple, tasty and even elegant when you need a dish-to-share at your event.   A Bit of Country has a large variety of mixes with alternative recipes that are a cinch to make and make an impression when they are served.  Each uses just a few easy to find ingredients to make great tasting foods.

Consider this refreshing summer salad using Jill’s Lemon Poppy Seed Dip Mix: 

  •  1 pkg. Jill’s Lemon Poppy Seed Dip Mix
  • 20 oz can pineapple chunks in juice
  • 2/3 cup sour cream
  • 8 cups unpeeled apples, cubed
  • 2 cups grapes, halved
  • 1 cup walnut pieces (optional)
  • 1 cup raisins (opional)

Combine Jill’s mix with the juice from the pineapple chunks.  Add sour cream and stir well.  Fold in fruit and nuts.  Serve chilled.

Stop by to sample our mixes and check out how the recipe can be enhanced to go from a simple dip mix to a main dish or great dessert.  Products we will be sampling on weekends throughout the summer include COUNTRY HOME CREATIONS  Fruit DipBacon & Cheddar CheesespreadAmbrosia Dip — JILL’S JAMS, MIXES & MORE  Chicken Chesapeake Chicken SaladHeavenly Chocolate Dessert Mix   and our newest addition — FISCHER & WIESER  glazes and cooking sauces featuring fruit sauces with chipotle a ‘sweet heat’
