Easy Summer Dishes – Our 5 Favorite Recipes
Are you looking for some easy summer dishes? Cooking in the summertime is super fresh, fun, healthy, and exciting. We all love the fact that easy summer dishes do not have to be complicated at all. The access we have to foods like fruits and veggies, fresh and packed with flavor in summer, is beneficial.
Summertime fresh foods accentuate bold, colorful, and new flavors, so you do not need loads of fancy ingredients to make your meals tasty.
We like to let the fresh produce and light summer flavors speak for themselves without overcomplicating anything. Plus, when it is hot and humid outside, no one wants to be slaving over a hot oven or stove for hours and hours preparing meals!
Below are our top 5 favorite easy summer dishes. You and the whole family are going to love them- we promise!
Pasta may seem like a heavy meal to cook in the hot months of summer, but you can make pasta dishes that are light and healthy, but still feel comforting to your digestion. If you pair pasta with fresh veggies, herbs, and make a super-light sauce to bring it all together, you can have a pasta dish perfect for a summer meal.
The pasta dish we mention here combines tender zucchini, fresh basil, and a touch of light but creamy ricotta. This mix makes it one of the yummiest summer pasta dishes possible. The brightness from the lemon zest and the perfect zippy fish and all other ingredients in this easy summer dish comes together in a quick 30 minutes.
Salads are always light and refreshing go-to summer meal, but they can get a little boring if you are not making them properly! That is why making this blueberry cucumber salad is a fun and different way to make a summer salad into a tasty and hearty meal.
With fresh blueberries, crunchy cucumbers, baby spinach, a sprinkle of salty parm, and a creamy balsamic dressing, you get so many different flavor profiles. To make this salad into an even heartier easy summer dish, add some grilled shrimp, grilled salmon, grilled chicken, or even some grilled steak. If you need to make this into a vegetarian or vegan option, add some tofu, tempeh, or even some creamy butter beans for added protein.
Blueberries and lemon are one of the tastiest and most refreshing summer food combos you can have. Having them both in a healthy and wholesome breakfast yogurt bowl is going to make waking up in the morning so much better.
This recipe has fresh blueberries, yogurt, chia seeds, and a crumbled lemon protein bar on top. To make things even more over the edge, you can use a lemon yogurt from the store or create your lemon yogurt at home with a touch of honey and fresh lemon zest to taste.
