TIP OF THE DAY: Lemon Meringue Pie Cocktail

It’s Lemon Meringue Pie Day. You can celebrate with pie, or try a delicious Lemon Meringue Pie Cocktail, also known as a Lemon Meringue Martini. Our recipe comes from the Dylan Prime steakhouse in New York City. With a graham cracker rim on the glass and a top layer of cream, it looks just like a lemon meringue pie in a glass (and tastes like lemon meringue with a kick).

TIP OF THE DAY: Horseradish Mayonnaise

A classic with roast beef, this mayo pairs well with seafood, burgers, turkey, cheese and veggies and is a zippy general sandwich spread and dip. Plus, it’s so easy to make—including a diet version with lowfat mayo. Stir together 1 cup of mayonnaise, 2 tablespoons of prepared horseradish (more if you like) and 1/4 cup minced chives or scallions. Add a teaspoon of lemon juice or some grated lemon zest, and you have a winner.

TIP OF THE DAY: Summer Salad

For a special but easy summer salad, add fresh grapefruit or orange sections and avocado and red onion slices to your favorite greens. Toss with a light vinaigrette. We love a dressing made from one of O Olive Oil’s citrus olive oils, paired with red wine vinegar.

TIP OF THE DAY: Snappy Side Salads


Never underestimate the impact of a side salad—a tasty and low-calorie addition to your meal (just don’t pour on heavy, high-calorie dressing). Garnish fish and seafood plates with small, colorful salads for added color and flavor. Buy a mesclun mix with red oak-leaf lettuce and other colors and textures; or for pungent flavor, mix arugula, mustard greens, radish sprouts and radicchio. Dress the salads lightly with a vinaigrette before plating.

    TIP OF THE DAY: Watermelon Martini

    It’s watermelon season for just a short while longer, so get out that cocktail shaker for some watermelon drinks! Combine one part vodka (or citrus vodka) to 1-1/2 parts puréed watermelon. Shake the ingredients with ice and strain into a chilled cocktail glass, garnished with a sprig of mint. For a quicker cocktail, we keep diced watermelon cubes in the freezer, then shake them with vodka. You can also try a variation with 1 part vodka and 1/2 part Dekuyper Pucker Watermelon Sweet and Sour Schnapps—handy during the months when fresh watermelon isn’t available (when it is, add crushed fresh fruit to the drink).
