Easy Summer Meal Ideas

Easy Summer Meal Ideas

Summer is upon us and it's time for meals for hot weather!

We've compiled a list of top meal ideas for summer cooking!

1:  Grilled Pork Chops

This simple recipe from The Stay at Home Chef uses 3 simple spices to season pork chops for the grill.  Pair with a green salad for a delicious grilled meal.

2. Steak Salad

A grilled flank steak is a great choice for slicing and pairing with a summer salad.  This recipe from Two Peas & Their Pod pairs steak with greens, avocado, corn, cherry tomatoes, and a lime-cilantro dressing.

3. Pulled Pork Carnitas Quesadillas

Putting the slow cooker to work on hot summer days is a great way to not overheat your kitchen.  Pop a pork shoulder roast in the slow cooker and you'll have enough pulled pork for a meal or two.

This pulled pork carnita quesadilla recipe from Recipe Tin Eats combines seasoned pulled pork with corn, bell peppers and cheese for a simple quesadilla recipe.

4. Sausage & Veggie Sheet Pan Meal

Sheet pan meals are a great way to combine garden fresh veggies with sausage or leftover meats.  You can use whatever veggies you have on hand including potatoes, beets, zucchini, peppers, corn, onions, and more.  Try this recipe from Chelsea's Messy Apron!

5. Pork & Apple Burgers

These burgers are inspired by a recipe shared from our Farm Box subscriber, Bonny!  Using ground pork instead of ground beef is a nice change in flavour.  The apple adds moisture & flavour to the burgers.  Find the recipe on the Lazuli Farms blog here.
