3. Crisp Salad
Salads sometimes get a bad rap, but we think that a great salad can be flavorful, unique, and super tasty! Summertime is a great season for salads because of all the fresh veggies you can find. Try to visit your nearest farmer’s market to whip up this summery Tomato, Cucumber and Feta Salad from the blog ‘And They Cooked Happily Ever After‘.
Gazpacho is actually a cold soup made from a variety of vegetables blended together. We think the best part of Gazpacho is that it’s so fun to say! Plus, it’s the perfect way to get a full serving of veggies is a cool, shippable form. Who knew that cold soup could actually be this tasty! We turn to The Pioneer Woman for a tasty twist on Gazpacho.
5. Fun Drinks
Nothing says ‘summer’ like a fruity sangria! It’s cool, refreshing, and filled with tons of delicious fruity goodness. We especially like this recipe from The Kitchn for a non-alcoholic sangria! The kids will love enjoying the fruit in their drinks, and parents are sure to enjoy it as well.
