Fair Trade Recipes That Are Perfect for Summer

The options for cooking and entertaining sustainably this summer are just about as endless as the summer days ahead, but sometimes we all need a little inspiration to get those good-time gears turning. Whether you use one of these recipes or one of your own, it's easy to incorporate Fair Trade Certified™ ingredients in your summer mains, sides, desserts, snacks, and beverages, from the shrimp on the grill to the sugar in your aunt's tried-and-true lemon ice box pie.

By swapping conventional ingredients for fair trade ingredients wherever possible, you're taking a small step to make a big impact, helping protect the planet and the people behind your ingredients. Show us how you're cooking with fair trade this summer by tagging @fairtradecertified in your photos on Instagram.
