Whole Foods Market is sweetening up the summer by celebrating fresh, organic berries throughout the month of June. For those inspired by the bright color and intensely sweet flavor of organic berries, Whole Foods Market will host a recipe contest from May 30 – June 15. Contestants are challenged to submit their best original seven-ingredients-or-less recipe for a chance to win one of five $250 Whole Foods Market gift cards. Berry fans can enter one of five categories (strawberry, blueberry, blackberry, raspberry or a combination) and will be judged on taste, originality, prominence of organic berries in recipe and original photography. This contest coincides with a month-long celebration of the quality, flavor and environmental-friendliness of organic berries in Wh ole Foods Market stores nationwide.
While delicious on their own, try out the recipes below for some berry creative inspiration:
• Strawberry-Balsamic Dressing
• Blueberry Summer Refresher
• Summer Berry Pie
• Berry Blue Salad
• Gluten-Free Baked Berry French Toast
• Traditional Strawberry Shortcake
