Easy, Nutritious Summer Dinners

mains recipes Jul 27, 2022

This time of year I always find a renewed love for getting in the kitchen. Maybe it's the longer days (more time to cook?), all of the fun get-togethers or simply the fact that some of my favorite produce is currently in season?

Regardless, take advantage with these easy, healthy dinners that scream summer!

Before you keep scrolling, I also encourage you to check out the simple, impromptu weeknight meals I share for inspiration on my "Meal Ideas" highlight on IG as well!

Zoodle, Corn & Tomato Salad

So refreshing and requires NO "cooking" at all. Perfect when you don't want to turn on the oven! Serve with a protein like grilled chicken, fish, steak or tofu for a well-rounded summer meal.

Mediterranean Quinoa Salad

This is genuinely one of my favorite recipes to meal prep. It's so flavorful and EASY, which I love. Check out my step-by-step video here!

Peach & Farro Summer Salad

What is summer without peaches? This one is so refreshing yet satisfying at the same time. Again, add a protein for a little more heartiness if you'd like!

Salmon Tacos with Mango Salsa & Cilantro Avocado Sauce

The combination of the mango salsa and the cilantro avocado sauce is, just, chef's kiss. These will make even non-fish-lovers convert!

Veggie-Packed Pasta Salad

I love this one for summer celebrations and gatherings, as pasta salad is always a crowd-pleaser. It makes a great side to whatever you're grilling up and provides lots of veggie goodness. Another step-by-step video here!

Cauliflower Tabbouleh with Mediterranean Shrimp

Can you tell I love Mediterranean flavors? This meal is fresh, flavorful and well-rounded to nourish you and the whole fam in the best way. Plus, it makes great leftovers for lunch!

Sheet Pan Honey Mustard Salmon & Veggies

While I love to cook in the summer, I also want EASY meals. It doesn't get much simpler than a sheet pan meal - be sure to check out more sheet pan recipes I have up my sleeve as well!

Strawberry Quinoa Summer Salad

The crunch of the cucumber, the sweetness of the strawberries, the creaminess of the feta and the freshness of the mint - AMAZING! Another summer staple in our house.
