A friend of mine was asking about summer recipes on her facebook page. I started listing different recipes and then I thought, I might as well put them somewhere I can look at it for my own use later. And if you want to share your recipes that would be SOOO Awesome. :)
So here are a few of my favorite summer recipes that have some how been labeled "summer in my mind and or require minimal heating up of the house.
Southwest Egg Rolls from Sister's Stuff. I love this recipe. It's SO simple for the days I don't feel like cooking. Granted, I already have chicken cooked and cut up in my freezer so I can just defrost it and throw it in. I also think this recipe would be fine without the chicken. I make the Alvocado sauce even though she says she just uses salsa. And I don't grill it after I assemble them, we just eat them like a burrito or taco.
French Dipped Sandwichs- I just recently discovered these but they are so yummy to me. I originally made the Our Best Bites recipe but I also found this one from Barefoot and Baking I kinda of want to try.
BLT Chicken Salad- I don't know what blog I got this one off. sorry
8c Salad greens
2 large tomatoes chopped
Green onions, sliced
1 1/2 lb bonelesss, skinless chicken breasts cooked and cubed
10 Bacon Strips, cooked and crumbled
2 Eggs, boiled and sliced
1/2 c Ranch dressing
3-4 BBQ Suace
2 T onion chopped
1t lemon juice
1/4 t pepper
Combine the dressing ingredients, mix well, cover and refridgerate until serving.
Place salad greens on a large serving platter. sprinkle with tomatoes, chicken and bacon. Garnish with egges. Drizzle with Dressing. Avocados also make a yummy addition.
P.S. Plain ol' BLT's are an awesome Summer meal. yumm.
