Summer Main Dish Recipes
A zippy, sweet and spicy nectarine salsa goes really well with pork, particularly grilled pork, in this favorite summer recipe.
This chicken salad has a creamy dressing and is best served over crisp lettuce leaves.
This is a recipe I came up with that uses all of my favorite ingredients and is very beautiful served on a platter.
These sheet pan meals get dinner on the table quickly with summertime favorites like sweet corn, fresh tomatoes, and ripe mangoes.
When shopping for this recipe be sure to choose plums (or any other stone fruit) that are fairly firm so they keep their shape after roasting. You know that selfish jerk that has to feel-up every piece of fruit before deciding on one? This time, be that jerk.
Tony is my husband. He brought home a recipe he had gotten from someone at work, and it was adapted over time to this recipe--so I named it Tony's Summer Pasta. The tomatoes and cheese are marinated in oil, basil, and garlic, and then tossed with the hot linguine. The tomatoes are warmed and the cheese melts ever so slightly, creating a simple but delectable meal.
From pasta salads and quinoa salads to sandwiches and lettuce wraps, these cold make-ahead meals are perfect for hot summer weather.
This grilled garlic and herb shrimp recipe is very easy, IF you can just walk out into the backyard, and pick a handful of your own fresh, green sprigs. However, these are so amazingly delicious, if you don't have a garden, then do splurge and buy a bunch of all the herbs. And get the extra large shrimp so they can grill longer and get maximum caramelization.
This mixture of orange juice, soy sauce, and garlic gives this marinade a wonderful taste.
