Start your day with Toast topped with Labneh, a Middle Eastern style yogurt that’s creamy, tangy and extra thick. Since we all know breakfast is the most important meal-- having Real California Milk and dairy products are a great way to get essential vitamins and minerals.

Here’s a healthy twist: incorporate yogurt and milk into smoothies and also dressings for salads for a protein boost.

Flavored sour cream for dipping veggies is a hassle free, healthy snack solution.

When entertaining this summer, try putting out a cheese board with a combination of traditional and Hispanic cheeses, like Queso Fresco and cotija.

Take your grilling game to a whole new level by adding Panela cheese to the grill-- this is the grilled cheese everyone’s talking about! And grilled corn on the cob is perfect for summer with a little butter.

And of course, you can’t forget about ice cream-- everyone’s favorite sweet summer treat! California is actually #1 in ice cream production!

Look for products with the Real California Milk seal, available in the refrigerator section at supermarkets in the San Diego area. You can use the product locator tool at RealCaliforniaMilk.com to find a store near you.

One of my favorite appetizers for summer entertaining is this tomato basil bruschetta-- it’s so easy and just tastes like summer. I use Pompeian’s Organic Balsamic Vinegar, which is USDA-certified organic in my recipe to add a complex flavor. The number one comment I get when serving this dish is, “it tastes so fresh!” A little secret, you can use Pompeian’s Organic Balsamic Vinegar for a balsamic reduction and it makes for a stunning presentation on the bruschetta. And of course, finish it off with a little cheese! Visit Pompeian.com to find a store near you.
