California Dreaming

We’ve all been there: wandering the produce department of the local grocery store, looking for something fresh to serve the family. Just because your favourite fruits and veggies are not in season in Canada, doesn’t mean you have to strike them off your list.
California Grown offers your family their favourites—like avocado, cherries, pears, grapes and asparagus—when local picks are not in season.

Why not get out of your winter rut and give one of these fresh and original recipes using California Grown produce a try. Your taste buds, and your kids, will thank you.

Easy EntertainingGrilled Asparagus, Grapes and Haloumi with Lemon VinaigretteGrilled Asparagus, Grapes and Haloumi with Lemon Vinaigrette
This super fresh summer salad takes mere minutes to barbecue. Look for haloumi cheese in the deli section. It’s a cheese that really is best cooked as it melts into this delicious slightly salty cheese that complements the sweetness of the grapes and flavour of asparagus.

The simplicity of this cake can’t be beat. Slightly caramelized sweet juicy cherries sit on a super moist vanilla cake.

Making and baking a traditional pie crust is more challenging than this easy to flip open concept cherry tart pastry. The cornmeal adds an extra dimension to the crust, as do the almond-flavoured macaroon cookies.
