Dad will totally dig these dippable salsas.

Dad deserves something sweeter this year, something fresher than what you may have given him in the past. Nothing is fresher than fruit, and Edible Arrangements provides several great options to give to your dad! Arrangements such as the All-Star Dad Celebration feature a delicious assortment of fresh pineapples, ripe strawberries, apples, and more of his favorites. And we know Dad loves chocolate, so you can add real chocolate Dipped Fruit™ to any arrangement or order an entire box of gourmet chocolate Dipped Fruit™ that Dad will love. The best part is that the leftovers (if there are any leftovers!) can be used to make several spicy salsas perfect for any BBQ or other meals. But hurry, Edible Arrangements is offering special pricing for Father’s Day that ends soon.

Are you short on great ideas for Dad this Father’s Day? If your special guy loves a backyard barbeque, make it memorable this year with an array of delicious salsas to top your feast.   Salsas are great with tortilla or plantain chips, but are one of the most flavorful, refreshing and low-calorie healthy ways to finish off your grilled grub. Simply marinate your protein in some garlic, olive oil, and fresh herbs, grill, and then top with a fresh fruit salsa for an incredible punch of flavor and beautiful color. Here are my favorite fruit salsa and grilled meat pairings:
