I can certainly tell that the first day of summer is just around the corner – it has really started to heat up the past few days!! Not to mention the ever-present humidity. Some cool summer recipes are definitely in order this week.

how about a swirled tropical fruit smoothie to cool things off? it’s so pretty!

tzatziki chicken salad would be great on a sandwich or salad for a healthy, filling lunch

pork souvlaki with pineapple + cucumber salsa makes a great new summer grill meal

can’t go wrong with grilled salmon…especially when topped with avocado! talk about some delicious healthy fats!

get your meat fanatic to consume a few veggies by….wrapping them in steak

this breakfast sandwich looks incredible. you could totally make your own sun-dried tomatoes if you have a food dehydrator (which I have been meaning to do…)

you know what else makes a great summer breakfast? overnight oatmeal. just combine 1/2 cup oats, 1/2 cup milk, and 1/2 cup yogurt in an airtight container and refrigerate overnight. all you have to do in the morning is add toppings (fruit, peanut butter, etc.) and eat!

feta + herb chickpea quinoa sliders would make a fun appetizer or light dinner

can’t wait for peach season to roll around – these peaches roasted in amaretto (or sub almond extract) look outrageous. with ice cream?! YUM. I think you could totally do these on a pan over the grill too.

What are your favorite summer foods or recipes you can’t wait to make?
