As Memorial Day weekend begins, we’re all in favor of easy summer dinner recipes. Whether you’re soaking up the sun, playing outdoor games, or hanging out on the baseball field, at the end of the day, the less time you spend in a warm kitchen, the better! No one would agree with that sentiment more than the Drummond family. “Often in the summer Ladd works cattle, so we have a big breakfast and lunch, then we do a light, light dinner,” Ree says, “Ladd will grill steaks (makes a grilled meal count as dinner no stove?!) and we’ll have them with a wedge of iceberg salad.” Other simple summer dinner ideas that Ree repeats include barbecue chicken recipes, quick shrimp recipes and other 30 minutes.
When it comes to easy summer recipes, you can’t go round without plenty of grilling ideas. Here you will find all kinds of burgers (beef burgers, lamb burgers, veggie burgers, etc.), as well as creative ideas for grilled salmon on a Caesar salad and grilled sausages with peppers and onions. Want to take advantage of seasonal summer products? Try the incredible tomato pie or the pesto pasta made with summer squash. And, if keeping cool is your goal, you’ll want to round out the meal with a refreshing summer cocktail and no-bake dessert.
