Friday Five: Summer Berry Recipes

Happy Friday!!  I love Memorial Day weekend!  It’s the gateway to summer!  Pools open, the days are longer, the weather is sunnier and warmer, and summertime fruits and veggies are starting to show up in the stores.

One of my favorite parts of summer is berry season!  I look forward to all those sweet berries: strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, and especially blackberries.  We go through pints of them all summer long.

For this Friday Five post, I wanted to share some of the recent recipes that I’ve found that highlight all those berries!

1. Angel Food Cake with Berry Compote

I have to share this one again!  This was one of the best things I made last summer for dessert.  I loved that you can cook the berries in the crockpot.  Perfect for making it early and letting it cook while you are at the pool! berrycompote

2. Red, White and Blue Strawberry Shortcake

Nothing says Happy 4th of July more than a red, white and blue flag cake.  It’s like a staple of all July 4th cookouts!

3. Greek Yogurt with Warm Berry Sauce

This one recipe sounds awesome and I would actually make a lot of the sauce to use throughout the week in the summer!  Perfect breakfast!

4. Strawberry-Avocado Salsa with Cinnamon Tortilla Chips

Our friends, Nathan and Katie, have made this one for several of our get togethers.  It is always a hit and there is never any left.

5. Blueberry French Toast Sandwiches

I made these for several brunches.  They are absolutely delicious!  I serve it with a side of orange marmalade to dip the sandwiches in.  Oh man, now I’m craving this! blueberrystuffedfrenchtoast

  1. The red white and blue strawberry shortcake looks so pretty. I may need to make that this summer! We usually just eat berries straight from the package, well after they have been washed of course!

  2. This is sort of a berry recipe, but not really. I like to take the inside of a watermelon and carve it into a cylinder, cover it with whipped topping and then berries. So delicious! And it looks like a cake so it’s kind of fun to trick people 😛

  3. All of these look delicious! I really like the idea of cooking something in the crock pot- less work for me, more yummy! I’ll probably use one of these ideas for my work’s memorial day cookout Monday. We were asked to bring in desserts and I totally forgot until just now! Oops!

  4. Yes yes. To all of these. I’ve had greek yogurt with berries but never a warm berries. I’m making this today. Wait. No yogurt. I’m making this tomorrow after I go to the groc store today.

    Have a wonderful weekend Melanie! xoxo
