Easy Summer Meals

May 21, 2018

When the weather turns warm, it's time for easy meals that are cool, colorful and a CINCH to prepare!

Here are a few ideas that are certain to please:


Chilled tuna salad: Serve it up with tomato wedges and a few whole grain pita triangles. Frozen grapes make a great dessert.
 
Open faced sandwiches: Spread a toasted slice of whole grain or rye bread with mayo or your favorite mustard.  Then add several slices of turkey and a slice of your favorite cheese. Top with baby spinach, lettuce, sliced onion, tomato and avocado.  End the meal with a chilled wedge of watermelon.
 
Cold shrimp: Served with a side of shredded cabbage, cilantro and lime juice, along with a corn tortilla.  Consider strawberries or blueberries for dessert. 

TIP: Cold leftover chicken is great if you don’t have shrimp!
 
Chef salad: Top a salad with protein such as chopped egg, sliced left over chicken, sunflower seed kernels, canned chick peas and / or shredded cheese.  Try freezing vanilla Greek yogurt to serve as a dessert. 

TIP: To enjoy salad in a totally different way, try a chopping it finely.
 
BLT lettuce wraps: Place 2 or 3 strips of crispy bacon and a bit of chopped fresh tomato onto a large lettuce leaf. Roll up and enjoy. Serve with a boiled egg. For a sweet ending to this meal try crisp apple slices sprinkled with cinnamon.
 
Try Something New!! Create your own black bean salad. 

It’s easy! This can be a main dish OR it may be served as a side dish (you will of course need to double or triple the recipe if this will be the main dish):
 
1. Start with one, 15 ounce can of black beans, rinsed and drained well. 

2. Stir in several chopped raw veggies: bell peppers, onions, celery, parsley or cilantro, grated carrots, etc.

3. Add garlic powder and chili powder (start small because you can always add more!)

4. Stir in ½ tsp. vinegar and 1 tablespoon of olive oil

5. Mix well and allow to chill for at least one hour.
