As the heat turns up, our taste preferences change to fresher, lighter and quicker dinners. Here are some of our favorite summer dinner ideas!
Spring was a little late to arrive this year. I’m not sure if the warmer weather got held up in the TSA line or maybe it was just enjoying its stay in the southern hemisphere?
No matter where it was, it came in roaring. It didn’t seem like we had much of a transition. There were layers and goosebumps one day, and heat and humidity the next.
The arrival of warm weather usually signals the beginning of hibernation season for our soup pots and casserole dishes. When the air is running non-stop, baking a casserole in the oven for an hour just has less appeal.
So it’s time to grab the charcoal and tongs, the salad bowls and sandwich fixings. Lighter, brighter and fresher is just around the corner. So here are a few summer dinner ideas to get those creative juices flowing. What are your favorite summer dinners?
Frito salad is a fun twist on a taco salad. It is loaded with flavor and is perfect for potlucks, but also makes a fun dinner main dish. The homemade Catalina salad dressing is easy to make and the salad is packed full of goodies.
Roasting shrimp is a quick and easy way to get them on the table. Add a spritz of key lime juice and you are really in for a treat. They are tasty on their own, but make a little key lime butter for dipping to take them to the next level. You will be licking your fingers as you go!
Turn leftover pulled pork into a completely different meal with this fun creamy bbq pulled pork spaghetti. It comes together quickly and is the perfect combination of creamy, sweet, tangy and meaty. It is a great way to switch it up and get dinner on the table!
This chicken brings the flavors of Greece to your grill. It is marinated in lemon and yogurt and then grilled. It comes off juicy, tender and full of flavor. You are going to love how good and how easy it is!
