This Summer my family and I have several get-togethers planned, and along with that comes many Summer dishes I would like to try! I have been buying bulk lately so I found myself with an abundance of kiwi and avocados. Sounds like Summer Salad material to me right? And right about the same time, my new summer line from Target arrived. Looks like Kismet.
Kiwi Avocado Salad
- 4 Kiwi fruit peeled and diced
- 1 Haas avocado peeled and diced
- 1 T green onion sliced fine
- 2 T cilantro fresh
- 1 t olive oil
- 1 T cranraisins
- 2 T almonds sliced
- Salt & pepper to taste
- Wash, slice, dice and mix
The strawberry plates just made me feel happy. The bright colors complemented the Kiwi Avocado Salad perfectly. I know this might sound weird, but my kids eat better when we use these plates. I think it has to do with the bight blues and reds along with the perfect size. I let them use the salad plates, while the adults dine with the dinner plates.
The cups that came with the entertainment package inspired me to make a berry cocktail to go with dinner. Everything becomes more fun with berries don’t you think! Here you can find my recipe for the Golden Apple Martini Summer Cocktail. You can also see where I used these dishes for my Fish Tacos & California Caviar. Isn’t it funny where you can get inspiration from? The summer entertaining assortment features bold graphics and vibrant colors on everything from tabletop pieces to backyard essentials and picnic must-haves to help you make the most of summer. Within the summer entertaining essentials package from Target, I received the 14 products listed below. Be sure to check out Target’s summer catalog where you can find all of these products and more for summer:
- Serving Bowl with Bamboo Lid – $11.99
- Bamboo Serving Utensils – $7.99
- Strawberry Melamine Dinnerware Plates (4) – $1.99 each
- Strawberry Melamine Salad Plates (4) – $1.79 each
- Strawberry Hi Ball Tumblers (4) – $1.99
In addition to the tableware that you can tell I LOVE, I was also sent this freakishly cool bowl with a wooden lid the same day I needed a bread bowl that did not seal completely. Kismet – I swear! I am sold on the fact that I was meant for these dishes. Look how perfect this bowl is for rising bread. Do I look prepared for a Big Honkin’ Summer or what? Whether you are traveling to the beach or just want to keep the kids busy, Target has all the summer essentials at great prices to make the most of the season.
I love Target. Target is the destination for everything families need to make the most of summer. They have top notch, fun items and they are affordable for my family. I love the fact that they take coupons and have such a large selection to choose from. You can stay up to date on their current deals by checking out their Facebook page. You can also make Summer fun pictures like the one I made using the Big Honkin Summerizer Application. This application allows you and your kids to add “Big Honkin’ Summer” icons to photos, and then share online or print at a local Target Photo Center.
I wrote this review while participating in a blog tour by Mom Central Consulting on behalf of Target and received products to facilitate my review and to thank me for taking the time to participate.
