These recipes are just a starting point, and there are countless other dishes you can explore during the summer season. Enjoy experimenting with seasonal fruits, vegetables, and flavors to create your own unique summer dishes!
Grilled Watermelon and Feta Salad - Watermelon is by far the MVP of summer fruit - While it’s refreshing all on its own, throw in some cucumbers, mint, red onion, and feta cheese, toss with dressing of your choice (I like a simple oil + red wine vinegar dressing myself), and you've got yourself a mean summer salad. It’s the perfect balance of sweet and salty flavors that will pair perfectly with practically any summer meal...or all on its own, straight out of the bowl—we won’t judge). 😉 Check out a recipe we found here.
Mango Salsa - If you’re looking for a salsa that has mastered the perfect balance of sweet, spicy, and salty, this mango salsa will be your favourite new thing to make! Pair it with some crunchy tortilla chips, and you’ll have a fresh snack to bring to BBQ potlucks or get togethers (or keep all to yourself) all summer long. Check out a yummy recipe we found here.
Strawberry Galette - One of our favorite ways to highlight ripe summer berries - second only to eating them out of hand - is to tuck fresh fruit into a flaky pie crust for an easy-breezy strawberry galette. Which is absolutely summer all wrapped up in an edible envelope. Jammy strawberries baked inside the most buttery, flaky and totally fool-proof pastry crust, topped with whipped cream or a vanilla bean ice cream? Okaaaay! Check out a tasty recipe here.
Fig & Mustard Baby Back Ribs - Ribs are the epitome of summer indulgence, combining smoky flavors, tender meat, and finger-licking goodness. Grilling ribs outdoors allows for the perfect char and caramelization, enhancing their savory and robust taste. We believe ribs bring people together, evoking the spirit of summer gatherings and leaving lasting memories of delicious, messy enjoyment! Check out an interesting recipe here, we're sure you've never tried this before!
Cucumber Ginger Mint Agua Fresca - This refreshing, citrusy drink is exactly the kind of thing you need, whether you're cooling off in the afternoon or you're daydreaming about summer. All you need to do is blend your ingredients and strain into a glass. Talk about easy. Check it our here!
So, whether you're firing up the grill to sizzle those mouthwatering ribs, shaking up refreshing cocktails by the poolside, or simply basking in the warmth of the summer sun, make this season unforgettable. Embrace the flavors, embrace the laughter, and embrace the joy of summer. From backyard barbecues to lazy beach days, let this summer be filled with unforgettable moments, shared meals, and the sweet taste of pure bliss.
Cheers to the best summer yet!
