Kickoff Summer with ALDI Foods and Recipes

Summertime fun is on its way. While the kickoff to summer may look different this year, it can still be special – and tasty. ALDI has all your summer spread essentials you love for less.

Michelle Dudash, RDN has teamed up with ALDI on this delicious menu spread to help keep you fed in a festive way—all of the food and drink you see here came from her neighborhood ALDI!

1. Build-Your-Own Burger Bar

Keep the fun going this summer with a burger board! Members of your household can all come together to enjoy this special meal. These at-home activities are fun and produce delicious results.If you’re not able to celebrate the kickoff to summer or upcoming Memorial Day holiday as usual with your family and friends, consider hosting a virtual BBQ with your loved ones. Participants can even make the same recipes, so you feel like you’re all together in these uncertain times.

Grill up burgers with ground beef and add some Simply Nature Organic Uncured Beef Hot Dogs on for good measure. If you don’t have ground beef, you can substitute with whatever you have in your fridge or freezer. Or maybe try some meat alternative options from the expansive Earth Grown line.

This exclusive line from ALDI has a variety of vegan, vegetarian and plant-based options, like these Earth Grown Veggie Burgers, or their kale veggie burgers and vegan shredded cheese.

For toppings, ALDI offers amazing cheeses that won the 2020 Product of the Year award, and still at a great value. Like Happy Farms Deli Sliced Cheese, in your favorite varieties. In fact, 1 in 3 ALDI-exclusive products is award-winning. (As of 1/29/2020, based on an audit of every day, nationally distributed ALDI-exclusive branded products.)

2. Let’s Talk Salads

This Citrus Popping Kale Salad is a great match for a burger. ALDI offers a large array of fresh foods, including organic produce and convenient ready-to-eat food like sliced fruit, ready-made salads and more — ideal for all dietary preferences.

3. Desserts and Drinks for the Whole Family

For drinks, you’ll also find an awesome selection of award-winning ALDI wines, many under $10. And beer, too! ALDI works with wineries around the world to curate top-quality varieties that bring connoisseurs and casual drinkers alike to ALDI.

  • Espritza Sparkling Rosé Wine Cans
  • Giambellino Peach Bellini
  • Velata Premium Sangria
  • Wild Range IPA

For dessert, kids and adults alike will love these Backwards S’more Bars.  Make recipes that get the whole family involved. To make these, you bake a box of Baker’s Corner Brownie Mix in two pans. Then you layer the brownies with marshmallows and graham crackers. And you have ooey, gooey s’mores bars!

Finally, in addition to keeping their stores clean and stocked, ALDI has put in place temporary wage increases to support their team members, increased scheduling flexibility, offering employees personal protective equipment and has implemented mandatory health screenings and temperature checks.

The ALDI shopping experience is designed to save people money and who doesn’t want more money in their pocket? Thankfully for us, ALDI operates more than 21 stores in the Indianapolis area, providing us convenient access to fresh, high-quality groceries at unbeatable prices.
