Number 1 - Boysenberry Chili in a Boysenberry Sourdough Bread Bowl
This hearty and delicious dish packs a punch with flavor. Boysenberry is noted in the flavor of the chili, but absolutely doesn't overpower the flavor. If you're worried about it being a spicy chili, not to worry, it's balanced well with meat and beans, and doesn't kick up the heat too much. Also, three words: Boysenberry. Sourdough. Bread. The bread alone is worth a tab pulled from the tasting card on this one. Trust us, you won't be disappointed.

Number 2 - Boysenberry Dry Rubbed Flank Steak with Boysenberry Cream Cheese Topping
Still under the savory category, this dry rubbed flank steak with boysenberry cream cheese topping is a fantastic hit with fans! If you've ever had a steak sandwich from the Fireman's Brigade in Ghost Town, take the steak from that sandwich, skewer it, and add boysenberry cream cheese.

Number 3 - Boysenberry Glazed Salmon over mixed greens and topped with a Boysenberry Vinaigrette
If you're looking for something a bit on the 'lighter' fare, the subtle taste of boysenberry glaze on the saltiness of the salmon is a perfect option for a warm spring day. Not everything has to be deep fried and sugary at the Boysenberry Festival, after all. There's a bit of something for everyone, and this is sure to be a favorite for guests wanting a healthy and very tasty option.

Number 4 - Boysenberry Pulled Pork Tostada
This hits the spot every time. Sweet pork topped with a dash of lettuce and sauce, and BAM! You've got a bite of deliciousness on a flat taco shell ready for you to chow down on as you stroll through Fiesta Village.

Number 5 - Boysenberry Key Lime Tart
Saving the best for last, this little tart treat is a key player for a sweet snack to munch on. Knott's took a classic summer favorite, and layered in boysenberry jam with the key lime tart and it's the best blend of sweet boysenberry and tart lime. If you ever wanted to know what an instant classic looked like, this is it.
