RECIPE: 5 Summer Recipes We Love

Even though September is right around the corner, it still feels like summer here in the Pacific Northwest (as I write this it is 91 degrees outside!), so I thought I’d share some of my favorite recipes of the summer. My boyfriend, James and I love cooking together and these have been some of our top favorites of the summer!

1. Zucchini, Feta, and Spinach Fritters with Garlic Tzatziki

These fritters are damn delicious and have been our favorite way to use up our garden zucchini. We’ve made these at least 3 times in the past few months. Serve them with homemade tabouli and hummus. YUM!
Recipe from Host The Toast Blog.

2. Sun-dried Tomato Cilantro Hummus

Speaking of hummus, we tried making this recipe with a jar of homegrown/sun-dried tomatoes and it was to die for! Serve with your favorite crackers, cucumbers and other veggies. Recipe from A Beautiful Mess.

3. Baked Coconut Shrimp with Pineapple Dipping Sauce

Coconut shrimp is one of our all-time favorite treats. We used to get them frozen from my grandma (who ordered them from Schwann’s), but they discontinued them. Now we make our own using this super easy recipe from The Girl Who Ate Everything.

4. Smashed Chickpea and Avocado Salad Sandwich

This is one of my favorite sandwiches to have for lunch. Avocados are my favorite food and this recipe is healthy, filling and delicious. Recipe from Two Peas & Their Pod.

5. Vietnamese Summer Rolls with Hoison-Peanut Dipping Sauce

Whenever it’s too hot to cook, we make salad rolls. I love this recipe with mango and avocado. Working with the rice papers is a little tricky, but with a little practice you’ll get the hang of it! Recipe from Inquiring Chef.
