Cool Summer Recipes for Hot Days

Last week, we spent a couple of quick days in NYC throughout that sizzling sizzling warmth wave. We did a bunch of strolling, a bunch of sweating, and every time we’d sit all the way down to a meal I’d discover myself ordering something on the menu that was chilly and refreshing. I had an exquisite watermelon gazpacho at ABC Kitchen… some fairly salads, and extra salads. I got here again craving some cool favorites that I believed I’d share right here. Click straight on the images to go to every recipe!

First up – this Watermelon Gazpacho, blended with tomatoes, cucumbers, basil and a pop of pink wine vinegar. This might be essentially the most refreshing recipe on the weblog – be sure you put it in your record earlier than summer time is over!

Watermelon Gazpacho

Corn, Cucumber, Peach & Avocado Salad

This Corn, Cucumber, Peach, and Avocado Salad is one in all my all-time favorites. It has an incredible crunch from the grilled corn and a pleasant pop of sweetness from the peaches and the basil. A creamy chile-lime dressing takes it to the subsequent degree.

Watermelon Poke Bowls

When I consider meals which are hydrating, watermelon and cucumbers are on the high of the record. This fake Watermelon “Poke” Bowl was impressed by a bowl from Poke Poke, one in all our favourite lunch spots in Austin. The watermelon is dressed with a tangy tamari-lime dressing, and topped with a sprinkle of furikake (a mixture of nori, sesame seeds and sea salt). I do know – this concoction sounds slightly bizarre, however it actually works 🙂

Watermelon St. Germain Cocktails

I’m clearly on a watermelon kick and I simply love these St. Germain Watermelon Cocktails. They’re manufactured from pureed watermelon (however you may also purchase chilly pressed watermelon juice), lemon juice, vodka, and St. Germain. A easy combo that’s so refreshing.

Tomato Basil Artichoke Picnic Sandwich

Before the summer time is over, go on a picnic and produce these Tomato Basil Artichoke Picnic Sandwiches. They’re slathered with a scrumptious basil edamame unfold and so they journey nicely!

Peach & Plum Caprese Salad

A fast no-cook appetizer – this Peach & Plum Caprese Salad is a candy spin on a traditional.

Chocolate Avocado Almond Pudding Pops

For a candy afternoon snack – these vegan creamy Chocolate Avocado Almond Pudding Pops are a more healthy model than the pudding pops I used to eat as a child. I promise the avocado style is undetectable (and Jack agrees!)

Summer Squash Vegetable Pizza

When you have got each summer time vegetable underneath the solar – throw it on a pizza!

Cucumber Mango Miso Noodle Bowls

More summer time means extra cucumbers! These Cucumber Mango Miso Noodle Bowls are nice for a lightweight dinner and excellent for lunch the subsequent day.

Raspberry Lemon Chia "Cheesecake"

Last however not least – a no-bake freezer dessert. This Raspberry Lemon Chia “Cheesecake” is a cool dairy-free deal with!
