What to Make This Week

Summer’s here and it’s time to embrace everything that entails: sunshine, cookouts, and lots of down time. We want to spend as much time as possible on the fun stuff, but we still have to eat, so that means meal planning. When you know ahead of time what’s on the menu, you can spend more time in the hammock or running through the sprinkler with your kids.

We’re here to help! To help you get started, we’ve collected seven recipes to get dinner on the table every night of the week.

Grilled Veggie Tostadas with Fresh Salsa ­– Vegan, Vegetarian
These fresh and flavorful tostadas are perfect for a meatless dinner! Use your favorite summer veggies or try something new to you.

Summer Tomato and Crab SaladGluten Free
We love this light and easy salad on days when it’s just too hot to cook. Serve with grilled bread, if you like.

Beef and Bulgur Burgers
Burgers are best in the summertime, and these hearty burgers add fiber and depth to a classic. A great budget-friendly option!

Fusilli Pasta with Roasted Tomatoes and “Hidden” Zucchini Vegetarian
This pasta is filled with delicious summer produce that creates its own sauce.

Honey Mustard Chicken and Veggie Kabobs
Kabobs are crowd pleasers, especially when served with a lightly sweet honey mustard sauce for dipping. Swap in tofu if you prefer!

Sweet cherries are a perfect topping for grilled lamb chops. Combined with mint, it’s a fresh taste of summer!

Heirloom Tomato, Kale and Orzo SaladVegan, Vegetarian
This salad uses flavorful heirloom tomatoes and fresh basil for the perfect light dinner. It makes enough for leftovers or to serve at a cookout.
