Healthy Dish – Greek Pasta Salad

Tasty Summer Dishes Greek Pasta Salad

We kick off our Summer recipe list with a classic for the warm weather – A perfectly cooked Greek Pasta Salad. What we love about this recipe is the versatility. You can use any combination of vegetables, fruit, and Pasta and it’ll always turn our perfect

For our recipe we’re opting for a classic combination of ingredients. Those wonderful and familiar Greek Salad ingredients of fresh Tomatoes, Cucumber, Red Onion, and Peppers are all great and in season at the moment. To complete the classic combination of flavors, well it wouldn’t be a Greek Salad without fresh Mint and Feta Cheese sprinkled on top

There are many different Pastas that are used for this recipe, Orzo and Spiral Pasta being very popular. For our version we’re going for Orecchiette. It’s the perfect Pasta for this Salad, as the size of the Pasta is roughly the same as Cherry Tomatoes when halved. It looks great on the plate and tastes every better!

Classic Dish – Flat Iron Steak Tacos

It’s just not Summer unless the outdoor grill is getting fired up, Amirite? Well, if you can, please save some space on that grill for this ridiculously tasty Mexican treat. Our classic Flat Iron Steak Tacos are simply perfect for the warm weather, and a fitting addition to these Tasty Summer Dishes

Flat Iron Steak is an often slept-on cut of meat, especially when Tacos are being made. Well we highly encourage you to bypass the Flank and Skirt Steak and give Flat Iron a go. It is not only ridiculously flavorful, but also so tender. Give the Flat Iron Steak a lovely scorch on the grill and those flavors will be immense

We’re keeping these Tacos light and simple, with a simple filling of Pickled Onions and then finished off with freshly made Chimichurri Sauce. Grill your Tortillas on the fire too for that lovely, charred flavor and you’ll be eating well!

Fun and Interesting Dish – Homemade Garlic and Onion Bread

Fancy a bit of baking? Why not! There’s nothing better than having a lovely loaf of freshly baked bread in the house. Those wonderful aromas fill the house and instantly get you thinking about food. I don’t know about you, but I just associate the idea of baking bread with warm weekend afternoons in Summer. Windows open, a breeze coming through, and a beautiful Garlic and Onion Bread loaf in the oven!

This recipe is loaded with flavor. Caramelized Onions and sweet Garlic flavor this bread so well. It’s an easy dish to make, and perfect to have around the house for a bite to eat. Cut off a slice whenever you’re hungry and load it up with some good quality Butter. Or it’ll work an absolute treat as some bread to go along with our next dish

Fun and Interesting Dish – White Wine Butter Mussels

Hot weather is always an excuse to eat Seafood, especially shellfish! This is one of those classic, must-have shellfish meals. We’re talking about the amazing White Wine Butter Mussels, cooked in a Garlicky, Buttery, Winey Sauce

Wash those Mussels well before adding them into a big pot filled with this delicious White Wine Butter broth and cook for a few minutes until the shells open. Sprinkle over a load of freshly chopped Parsley and serve alongside that fresh Garlic and Onion Bread for a perfect meal. A welcome addition to our list of delicious Summer meals

Healthy Dish – Roast Vegetable Lentil Salad

We’ve got Vegetarians and Vegans completely covered in our great Summer dishes too, don’t worry about that. In fact, this dish may be one of the best of the bunch! An amazing Lentil Salad paired with wonderful Roast Vegetables. It’s a legitimately hearty meal, but still perfect enough for the warmer weather

Lentils are such an impressive ingredient, and they really bring this recipe together. Their lovely, chewy texture is the perfect accompaniment to the delicious roast Leek, Garlic and Onions. Completing the dish is a wonderful variety of fresh Veggies from Tomatoes and Celery, to Mint and Cilantro for a fresh, vibrant finish!

Classic Dish – Easy Crème Brulee

Creme Brulee summer dessert

Rounding out our Tasty Summer Dishes meal plan for the week is one of my all-time favorite desserts. The classic Crème Brulee! This recipe is so easy to make and requires just 4 ingredients. Yep! Cream, Eggs, Sugar, and Vanilla Extract is all you need to make this phenomenal dessert

Crème Brulee is a great summer dessert because it’s served cold and that light, refreshing custard leaves you with a lovely, sweet flavor in your mouth without it being too rich and heavy. Also, there’s not many more enjoyable things to do in the cooking world than creating that Toffee / Brulee topping with a kitchen torch! A fun and memorable way to wrap up our Tasty Summer Dishes!
