How was your Labor Day weekend? Did you picnic and party and sleep in a bit? We made some picnic-perfect food at our house, like Grilled Chicken with Cherry-Chile Sauce. It was change of pace from standard barbecues sauce – for the win!
Charred Green Beans with Burrata and Peaches is a fabulous summer salad that is both easy to prepare, and a delight to serve on a hot day. Give this dish a try the next time you invite friends for a backyard meal, or when you need a special dish for lunch.
Baked Chicken and Green Chile Taquitos are a Mexican-inspired favorite that is fun to serve and easy to make. Serve them to suit your needs: they’re perfect for snacktime or as part of a light meal. I love them with salsa and guacamole to dip into!
Grilled Eggplant, Cherries, and Couscous Salad combines the elements of grilling, along with a seasonal side dish, with fresh cherries tossed in for some extra fun. It’s the time of year when we crack open our grills, as well as dish out cold and refreshing pasta salads. This one is a keeper!
When I think cabbage rolls, I usually think of a comforting fall or winter meal. I’ve switched things up and turned cabbage rolls into a warm-weather treat! Napa Cabbage Summer Rolls with Chicken & Spicy Peanut Sauce makes a great light meal to enjoy this season.
