Customizing your Summer Meals

Customizing your Summer Meals

(ARA)- The idea of customization is nothing new; American diners have always been inclined to make their own choices when it comes to what goes into (and on top of) their entrees. But as more and more restaurants make the idea of customization their focus, the trend is making its way into our homes at a rapid pace.
Celebrity chef, author and produce expert Curtis Aikens is particularly aware of the customization trend due to his focus on fresh vegetables, which often provide the basis for customizable entrees. From salads and pasta to baked potatoes, customization is coming home to your kitchen this summer.
Summer is the best season for salads. The lettuce is crisper, the vegetables are fresher and everyone is in the mood for a light entree option. Sargento Cranberry Pecan Finishers provide a great blend of sweet and salty flavors for a standout salad. Mix and match dried cranberries and crunchy pecans, as well as Asiago and Mozzarella cheeses, which are all included in this Finishers variety.
