Summer Must Eats

Here are some of my favorite foods of the season! What are your favorites?
-Grilled Veggies (think asparagus, yellow squash, zucchini, red peppers, onions all marinated in a balsamic vinaigrette)
-Watermelon--and lots of it!
-Frozen grapes- so great for a hot day
-Burgers with grilled pineapple slices or avocado slices-Grilled salmon salad over mixed greens with a lemon-y dressing
- Pulled pork with coleslaw!
- Grilled chicken (can you tell our grill gets lots of use in the summer!)
- Pasta salad
-Red Pepper hummus and carrots
- King crab legs--my absolute favorite!
All of the above should be eaten outside with good company! Add a dash of Diana Krall, white wine (or a good mojito), and it's a party! Have a fabulous day!

Yum! I love all of your choices -- I would also add a tangy margarita to your drink list! :)

Mmmm I love all the vegetables available in the summer time, and I love it that I just naturally eat lighter when it's hotter outside... in the winter I want cheesy fatty casseroles and in the summer I want watermelon and sweet tea... so good for my figure :)

I love grilled veggies during the summer especially with a light vinegrette sprinkle just before you take them off the grill! That plate of veggies looks so yummy!

They all sound delicious to me but topping my list are the grilled veggies, frozen grapes, pineapple burgers, chopped barbecue with coleslaw (your pulled pork), and pasta salad! Oh, and definitely the crab legs!

Try grilling pineapple and adding a scoop or 2 of ice cream and some caramal drizzled on top. YUMMY!

Now you've made me hungry...I think I will go see what I can grill tonight!
