No one wants to spend warm sunny summer nights cooped up in the kitchen. These summer dinner ideas are all about quick and easy meals, seasonal ingredients, and some of them can even be prepared outside on the grill.
Inspired by a meal I had in Provence, greens are topped with slices of streak, crispy prosciutto, fried goat cheese, asparagus and tomatoes. The dressing is a homemade mustard vinaigrette that comes together in minutes.
I recreated the salad that I have ordered again and again from a Chicago restaurant. It has diced chicken, bell pepper, hard boiled egg, crispy bacon, roasted beet, and cheddar cheese. I can eat it everyday and still love it.
Replacing pizza dough with soft doughy naan and topping it with whipped feta, pesto, tomatoes, and pine nuts is a delicious meal you can make in minutes. It has a lighter fresher taste than traditional pizza.
