It’s the height of summer, and there’s no better time to enjoy everything the outdoors has to offer, but yeah, it’s pretty dang hot. So, we’ve come up with a summer menu for a full weekend of no-cook deliciousness you can put together without breaking a sweat.
Easy Breakfast - For a light and deceptively healthy sweet treat this morning, whip up some Beet and Berry Smoothies.
Lunch Outdoors- Lemony Salmon Pasta Salad: Time to turn that leftover salmon into a perfect picnic shareable. Print out some copies of this recipe, because everyone will ask for it.
A Chill Dinner - After a long, warm day, a light, cool, and hydrating hits the spot just right. Serve it next to this tropical Shrimp Ceviche and you’ve got the summeriest plate of the season.
The Ultimate Summer Dessert - Three words: ice cream bar. Grab your favorite toppings, sauces and syrups, and choose from our selection of incredible frozen faves. May we recommend: Molly Moon’s, Acme, Snoqualmie, Lopez Island, and Elevated for the dairy lovers and Cosmic Bliss, Oatly, So Delicious, and Alden’s for our plant-based partakers.
On summer Sunday we like to take things a little slow—hang time with the fam in the backyard, music on the speaker, and great food on the picnic table.
Breakfast - Matcha Chia Pudding tastes like something from a chic café—but it’s actually easy to make, chilly, really yummy, and actually good for you.
Laid Back Lunch- Nourish that summer body with a nutritious bowl of Raw Soup—it’s packed with veggies and comes together in minutes.
Afternoon Snack - Refuel, rehydrate and rev back up with this Thai-Style Melon Salad. It’s refreshingly easy to make (and it looks like it took real thought and effort).
Summer Sunday Dinner - Treat yourself to a lobster dinner tonight, chill weekend style. Papaya Salad with Lobster is bright, fresh, and brings the refreshment of a dip in the ocean right to your plate. Pair it with a crunchy Zucchini Ribbon Salad and you’ll have the coolest Sunday evening meal of the season.
Dessert - Tonight, have some fun with ice cream’s lighter cousin: the popsicle. For a fragrant middle-eastern treat, try our Easy Kulfi. Or cap your weekend with refreshing Melon Popsicles—either one will leave you with sweet memories of the weekend to look back on.
