Summer Recipes

Ah, summer – a time to enjoy the longer days, the warmer weather, backyard barbecues, and lighter food made with fresher produce. Make the most of your summer meals with summer recipes from RecipeChart.com’s community of creative food bloggers.

Colorful salads can often serve as a light lunch on a warm day, so try a new salad recipe this summer – like wild berry and grilled chicken salad with candied walnuts, fresh fruit salad, Brussels sprout salad with avocado and pomegranate, or zucchini and green bean salad (especially helpful for those of us who grow our own zucchini and find that it produces more than we thought we needed!). There are also summer recipes for that summertime classic, fruit salad.

For a dip that is ideal for summer snacks or a very light supper along with pita chips and raw veggies, try the fresh fava bean dip recipe. And for a summertime dinner that’s light but satisfying, how about salmon burgers with cilantro mayo?

We also have summer recipes that aren’t light at all, but very satisfying and perfect for a summer party. Try our recipes for barbecued chicken kabobs, Chinese BBQ pork, or a classic Philly cheesesteak.

Of course, no collection of summertime recipes would be complete without cold drinks and frozen desserts. Refresh yourself with beverages like ginger and honey iced tea, a berry minty spritzer with pureed mixed berries, basil lemonade, a refreshing citrus cocktail, thyme paloma cocktail, or a red wine sangria.

And for those who are too young to enjoy frozen alcoholic beverages, there are frozen dessert recipes such as blueberry chocolate chunk frozen yogurt, roasted strawberry cheesecake pops, watermelon lime popsicles and more.

All of our summer recipes (along with the tantalizing photos of the finished dishes and desserts) come straight from your fellow foodies and food bloggers. At RecipeChart.com, we’re committed to sharing our love of good food with food lovers all over the Internet.

Speaking of sharing, do you have a food blog and want to submit a recipe of your own to our website? We’d love to see your recipes and let them inspire a wider audience of serious foodies! Just hit Submit Content to tell us all about your blog.
