I’m looking for some summer food inspiration and thought we could all share our favorite recipes or meals. It’s so much easier for me to get inspired to bake and seek out sweet recipes (as evidenced by my scone mania) but I need a little help when it comes to regular meals.
I’ll share my current faves first, then hopefully you’ll share your favorites!
Spicy Honey Chicken Salad from Our Best Bites
Mmm… Harry and I both salivate over this salad. We’ve made this so many times! At least every other week.
Tabbouleh from Ina Garten
I’ve been making this recipe, substituting quinoa for the bulgur, for two years now, ever since I first saw the idea on Angry Chicken. This is a summer staple around here. It’s great to have in the fridge for a cool lunch or dinner, especially when it’s too hot to cook. I’ve started adding grilled chicken sometimes, from another Barefoot Contessa recipe that a friend introduced me to.
espinacas con garbanzos from Smitten Kitchen
These are so delicious and addictive! They’re not actually all that summery — maybe more ideal for cooler weather — but sooo good I can’t stop making them!
Chicken Satay with Peanut Sauce from the Food Network
Our neighbor brought some of these over a while back and I’ve made them since. I’ve tried different chicken satay/peanut sauce recipes in the past and this is my favorite so far. I also love how you wrap it up in a lettuce leaf!
Now it’s your turn. What are your favorite summer recipes and meals?
