The Best of Summer

 

 

Coconut Ice Cream

Well…the weather has definitely proven that it’s summer! And it sure has been an eventful season already.

The summer season is meant for lots of activities. Of course it’s a great time to enjoy the outdoors but temperatures are warm enough these days to make preparing food miserable. So when it’s time to start thinking about food, what can you make that doesn’t take a lot of effort while still being flavorful?

Here are a few recipes that will leave you satisfied instead of burned out (pun intended).

Fresh Veggie Summer Rolls

Veggies are a great choice for a healthy snack or quick lunch. These veggies rolls are stuffed with summer vegetables and can be wrapped with cucumber or zucchini. So cute and really tasty, all while being super healthy!

Squash Pancakes

To the naked eye, these look like crispy golden latkes but instead of potatoes, try grated summer squash. So good!

Summer Grilled Mexican Street Corn Quinoa Salad

It sounds like a mouthful, and it is in every way. This quinoa salad is full of so many delicious ingredients that it’s impossible not to love the combination. Plus, any day you can eat Mexican street corn is a good day!

Grilled Surf and Turf Salad

Ok, this recipe does actually require some flames from the grill but it’s worth trying to power through the summer heat for.  It’s a fun spin on traditional Surf & Turf – just add some fresh spinach and watercress and drizzle with a homemade dressing for a savory tossed salad dish full of flavor.

Don’t forget to save room for some homemade ice cream and refreshing drinks. Here’s a collection of other perfect summer recipes to enjoy.

Happy cooking!
