This summer culinary adventure balances sugar and spice in an explosion of flavour that suits proteins, sandwiches, salads, and desserts alike. Bring an exciting twist to your patio tables this summer with inventive takes on old favourites. These sweet and spicy summer recipes will make mealtime pop, and we’re here for it.

You have to try it to believe it: This sandwich is absolutely layered with flavour. From the zesty marinated chicken thighs to the smoky-sweet sauce it’s smothered in, this is a meal you’ll be making again and again.

Here’s our secret to fall-off-the-bone tender BBQ ribs: Wrap them tightly in aluminum foil and slow cook them for 45 minutes before putting them straight on the grill and basting them over and over with sweet, spicy sauce until they’re glistening with sticky glaze.

Too hot to cook? A summer salad with juicy fruit, fresh flavour and salty spice to the rescue! Simply chop, mix, stir and serve! It also makes for a crowd-pleasing side at BBQs, dinner parties and beyond.

Lend a little heat to your icy treats! This ice pop gives Mexican hot chocolate a summer makeover by adding cinnamon and cayenne. Bonus: Made with coconut milk and cocoa powder, they’re also completely dairy-free. Add even more zing: shake on a bit of spicy Tajín, a spice mix primarily made up of chili pepper, lime and salt.

Take those tastebuds on vacation with coconut-ginger marinade, lime-chili crema and tropical fruit salsa on a tropically inspired chicken taco. A flavourful solution for busy summer nights, this meal can be on the table in less than 20 minutes when you marinate the chicken in advance.
