Grilled Chicken with Peach Relish

The summer season sure does fly by, so get outside and soak it up! Pack these essential recipe ingredients, snacks and beverages for your next backyard barbecue or picnic in the park.

Season’s Finest
Beautiful peaches and nectarines signal the bounty of the summer season. Bring portable fresh produce along for hiking trips, camping or a day at the beach. Juicy
Premium Moonlight Fruit from California provides a refreshing source of fuel that’s naturally good for you with vitamins A and C, potassium and fiber. When selecting firm peaches or nectarines to enjoy in a few days, simply ripen them at room temperature and refrigerate once they have reached your desired level of ripeness. Looking to add a twist to grilled salmon, chicken or pork? Garnish it with this recipe for sweet and spicy peach relish.

Best Dressed for Grilling
Salad dressings can be used as the finishing touch for leafy green salads or to impart savory flavor into grilled meat and poultry dishes. New Naturally Delicious® All Natural Salad Dressings are made with canola oil and free of artificial preservatives, colors, and high fructose corn syrup. Drizzle Parmesan Peppercorn or Chipotle Ranch flavors over salad greens for 840 milligrams of
the 1,300 milligram daily goal for omega-3 from ALA per serving. Or for the perfect marinade, use one-half cup of Balsamic Vinaigrette or Italian flavors for every one pound of meat and marinate in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes.

Must-have CRUNCH!
When you crave a crunchy side-kick for your grilled burger or hot-dog, go for the baked, not fried, choice. Frito-Lay® Baked! Chips taste so good you would never know they contain half the fat of regular potato chips and zero grams of trans fat. When hosting a backyard barbecue for a crowd, stock up on all 11 varieties including new Parmesan and Tuscan Herb and Southwest Ranch
flavored Lays®, plus classic Frito-Lay® snacks like Ruffles® and Doritos®.

Thirst Quenchers
Whether you’re playing sports or mowing the lawn, adequate fluid intake is critical to feeling good and performing well in the heat. Stock your fridge or cooler with beverage options that refresh and rejuvenate like water and new Propel® Powder Packs. To give your water a punch of flavor, simply mix the powder packet in a 16.9- or 20-ounce bottle of water and shake to combine. Sip the lightly sweetened flavors of Citrus Punch and Cherry Lime that contain just 10 calories per serving. These vitamin-enhanced powders supply a good source of vitamin C and calcium.

Experts agree that even when thirsty, children may not drink enough because they prefer flavored beverages to plain water. To keep your youngster well-hydrated, add a twist of fresh citrus to water or provide small amounts of juice like Apple and Eve® Fruitables™ Fruit and Vegetable Juice Beverage. Made with a blend of fruit and vegetable juices plus purified water, these juices have one-third less sugar than others and 70 calories or less per serving. The fruity flavors of Berry Berry and Apple Harvest are free of artificial ingredients and
supply an excellent source of vitamin C and a good source of vitamin A and E. Available in juice boxes or 46-ounce bottles.

Keep bugs OFF!
Protect yourself and your family from uncomfortable mosquito bites with OFF!® Clip-On™ repellent that goes wherever your outdoor summer adventures may take you. There’s no need to spray repellent directly on your skin, the OFF® Clip-On™ dispels and circulates the scent-free repellent all around you with its quiet, battery-powered fan. For up to 12 hours of head-to-toe protection, simply clip the compact device on your clothing or lay flat on a nearby surface.
