Sure, we technically have a few more weeks before the official commencement of summer… but lately the majority of my diet has revolved around summery foods.
Here are some of my favorites from last year!
Who says soup has to be hot? This Chilled Avocado Soup – garnished with roasted corn – is a lovely meal for a warm day. Rich & creamy but light, this soup can easily be either an appetizer or entree.
Cherries are one of my favorite fruits, and despite the high price tag for the organic variety, our fridge is almost always stocked throughout the summer months. Try ‘em in this tasty Cherry, Arugula, & Quinoa Salad with Goat Cheese and Almonds…
…. or in a sandwich such as this delectable Peach, Cherry, and Brie Panino.
Berries are another summer staple for me, and they shine in this stack of Blueberry Cornmeal Pancakes for One.
If it’s too hot where you live to even think about turning on the oven or stove, check out this Raw Corn Salad with Cumin Lime Dressing. Yep, raw corn. If you haven’t tried it, consider this salad your incentive!
