Most people get excited for cooking during the Fall and Winter, but I’m here to say I really love cooking in the Summer. I think Summer foods/recipes are very underrated. I love all of the bright and fresh ingredients often used in Summer recipes. Below are some of my favorite Summer dinner ideas (that I honestly tend to make year-round).
Pasta al Limone from Bon Appetit
This pasta is to die for! I love to have it with grilled chicken and zuchinni.
Buffalo Chicken Salad from Delish
This is a recipe I have recently started incorporating into our “go-to” meals. It’s the type of salad that feels unhealthy but is actually healthy and satisfying. I don’t follow the recipe exactly. I mostly use the recipe for the chicken marinade then toss it together with romaine, blue cheese crumbles, corn, sunflower seeds, and blue cheese dressing.
Lemon Garlic Shrimp from Delish
This recipe feels like it takes no time to make and it’s healthy. I love to serve this with brown rice and asparagus.
Summer Corn Pasta from Laura in the Kitchen
I know this recipe might sound a bit strange but you’re just going to have to trust me when I say it’s delicious. We’ve had it on it’s own but it would also make the perfect side for a BBQ get together.
This recipe I actually have not tried yet but I’m confident it will be good.
Shrimp Ceviche Tostadas
Ceviche recipe from Jessica Gavin and Homemade Tostada recipe from Isabel Eats
This ceviche and tostada recipe is a match made in heaven. For the tostadas, I like to squeeze some lime juice and sprinkle salt on them immediately after they come out of the oven.
