Happy Memorial Day!

Celebrate the start of summer by grilling & chilling.

Celebrate Memorial Day

Ah, MDW. The unofficial/official kickoff to summer is *finally* here! Grab your favorite eats and grilling treats, from hot dogs to frozen desserts, to celebrate the start of the season.

Seafood On A Bun

One of the easiest and most delicious ways to enjoy seafood is in a sandwich. Whether it's salmon and halibut burgers or lobster and crab rolls, seafood somehow tastes even better when it's tucked between some bread. Right now, we're really loving soft-shell crabs, which have just returned for the season. Enjoy their impeccable flavor in this sandwich recipe from our team: Soak soft-shell crabs in milk for 10 minutes, then pat dry, season, and dredge in cornmeal or flour. Cook in a pan with oil until browned and crisp, about 2 minutes per side. Serve on a brioche bun with blanched ramps, spicy mayo, and lettuce. Get the full recipe on the FreshDirect blog.

    Rosé Days Are Here!

    Memorial Day means you officially have permission to wear white and order rosé. Not that we haven't already been drinking pink. But something feels especially right about sipping on an old or new favorite while kicking off your summer grilling! Find the wine that fits your taste and your budget perfectly, from picnic-ready cans to impressively delicious boxes that are big enough to serve the whole crew.

    How To: Burrata & Melon Salad

    Sweet, savory, crunchy, and smooth. You get a little bit of everything with this supremely good summer salad. Arrange greens (like arugula), fennel slices, and melon chunks on a plate -- we love Kiss melons here for their juicy and intense flavor. Then, plop a burrata on top of it all. Season with salt, pepper, and a light vinaigrette. You can add other fruits if you like, too!

    How To: Elotes

    Elotes, known as Mexican Street Corn, are easy to make and easier to eat. Cook your corn on the cob as usual and roll in crema or butter once it's done. Sprinkle with cotija cheese to your heart's content and cover in cayenne for a lil' heat.

    Smoothie Starters

    For a morning pick me up, try a smoothie. There's no need for a recipe, just grab one (or a few) in-season fruits, your favorite milk, juice, or non-dairy base, and any add-ons your heart desires. Then blend it up, pour it out, and grab a straw for sipping!

    Meats For Your Memorial Day Grill

    Oh how we've missed the flame-kissed taste of burgers, sausages, ribs, chicken, and other backyard grilling greats. Welcome them back into your summertime rotation this holiday weekend, and don't forget to pick up a few veggie options, too.

    How To: Easy Pesto Pasta Salad

    This simple pasta recipe is our go-to for an easy, Italian-inspired dinner or picnic side. You can enjoy it hot, but in the warmer months it's also great chilled and served cold. Here's how it's done: Cook your choice of pasta according to package instructions; save a little of the cooking water before draining. In the empty pot toss your pasta with a few tablespoons pesto, olive oil, and a handful of toasted pine nuts. You can even add small pieces of mozzarella cheese, a few halved cherry tomatoes or sun-dried tomatoes. Divide between bowls and garnish with thinly-sliced basil, a drizzle of olive oil, flaky sea salt, red pepper flakes, and ground black pepper.

    Breakfast Formula: Yogurt + Fruit + Granola
