Fresh, Flavorful Food: 3 Summer Dinner Recipes to Try

Written by Terra | Thu, Jul 14, '16

We believe summer supper should be quick to prepare, fresh, colorful, and sometimes grilled. Keeping that in mind, our team has prepared a new set of meals using the best summer has to offer. Light and fresh ingredients are the stars, keeping you on track and ready for whatever activities your hazy post-dinner evening has in store. We’ve chosen three of our favorites that are perfect for a leisurely dinner al fresco, enjoy!

Summer Dinner Recipes

1. Crispy Salmon and Watermelon Salsa

This meal combines so many summer flavors - watermelon, jalapenos, mint, and even some seafood. Mix things up with your drink pairing and compliment this pink plate with an American Double IPA. For an easy summer dessert, brush your leftover watermelon spears with oil and grill! Serve with a scoop of lemon sorbet, and start planning your next staycation.

2. Kale Corn Succotash over Cheesy Chicken

 There are few recipes with “cheesy” in the name that you can really enjoy guilt-free, however, this meal clocks in at only 413 calories per serving! With those kind of stats, you won’t need a cheat day from your low calorie diet. A fruity Malbec will pair perfectly with the dark leafed kale in the succotash. Cherry tomatoes add brightness to the dish, and the goat cheese, just trust us, you are going to love it!

3. NY Strip Steak with Raw Corn and Radish Salad

 Nothing says summer like a grilled meal on a sun-kissed tablescape. The spice of the radish and jalapeno dressing in the sweet corn salad adds an unexpected flair to a summertime staple. If you are choosing a wine pairing, consider a white Bordeaux, which is a blend of a Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc - it is the perfect compliment to corn and radish.
