Summer is a great time to experiment with some delicious summer recipes. Summer recipes are my favorite because, there are so many delicious vegetables and fruits, in season, that you can use to make these recipes. Plus everything tastes better when you are able to eat it outside in the beautiful sun or watching the sunset. So give our below list of delicious summer recipes a try and let us know what you think!

Our List of Must Try Summer Recipes

Grilled Corn with Herb Butter

Grilled corn is one my favorites. I actually made it just last weekend and will probably make it again very soon. I feel like the flavor is just so much better when you grill corn vs. boiling it. But hey, that’s just my opinion and I’m no professional chef.

Spicy Shrimp Skewers

I know this says fast and easy summer recipes but technically it is. It’s not like you have to stare at the refrigerator the entire time it’s marinating. Anyways, I could eat grilled shrimp for the rest of my life and be perfectly happy about that. I love shrimp, especially spicy shrimp. I love spicy shrimp even more so when Sriracha is included in the mix.

To think I used to hate this dish leaves me in disbelief every time I think about it. This Creamy Summer Slaw recipe makes a perfect side dish to even the simplest meals like a hot dog, or good ol’ fashion burger.

Greek Yogurt Shrimp, Avocado & Tomato Salad

Yup, another shrimp recipe. Not only does this summer recipe hit home for those who are trying to eat clean and healthy but it can be eaten for lunch, dinner, a side dish, a full meal, basically whatever and whenever you want. It only can stay covered in the refrigerator for up to 2 days after you put the dressing on.
