I think it’s safe to say that Summer is officially here and here to stay! Summer to us always means food, food & more food. To show you just how much we love to eat, we’ve put together a pretty extensive list of some of our favorite dishes. Don’t worry, we’ve included options for all—whether you’re vegetarian, gluten-free, or just here for the cocktails. ;)
These zucchini chips are an amazing alternative to fatty potato chips & the added lemon is delish! See the full recipe by Closet Cooking.
Whenever I see penne recipes I usually think “boring”, but this roasted asparagus penne is actually anything but boring. See the full recipe by My Recipes.
If you’re looking for a good burger alternative this is it! The great thing about these portobello burgers is that you can top them with whatever you’d like and create your burger however you lie. See the full recipe to see how Country Living topped theirs.
I know we’ve all seen these chocolate ballon bowls before, but they are such a treat to have that we just had to include them. Fill them with your favorite ice cream flavor & you’ve got the perfect desert! See how to make them on BBC Good Food.
This summery twist on the classic BLT by Hapa Nom Nom is a great way to lighten up a traditional BLT.
This dish from Cooking Classy not only tastes as good as it looks but the sweetness of the mango mixed with the sharpness from the fresh red onion compliment the grilled salmon perfectly.
If you’re looking for a quick, refreshing desert try out these lemon lime bars by Thistlewood Farms. So simple & makes quite the statement!
I don’t think I’ve ever seen a dish as colorful as this. Gimme Some Oven fresh ingredients put a modern (and beautiful) twist on a typical chicken salad.
For those of you who like a little spice in your life, these jerk shrimp tacos from Woman’s Day have just the right about of heat.
Anyone with a sweet tooth is going to want to check out this incredible Peanut Butter Bar recipe by This Mess is Ours. A great alternative to the classic chocolate chip cookie.
Kick up your classic Moscow Mule with some blueberries & basil! This sophisticated take on one of my favorite cocktails by Marla Meredith is why this has become one of go-to summer cocktails.
I cannot get enough of these homemade “slushsicles” from Pear Tree Kitchen. You can use whatever type of mixed drink you prefer, but remember there must be a least a little sugar otherwise it won’t freeze up!
One of my favorite drinks to experiment with is Sangria because it’s so versatile! I usually just throw in whatever fruit I have around the house. If you want something a little more polished, try this Watermelon & Pineapple Sangria from What the Fork Food Blog.
