Five Must-Try Summer Recipes
I love using the new seasons as an excuse to step out of our ordinary little recipe box. Here are five recipes I am planning to put into heavy rotation in the warmer months ahead:
(above) Honey grilled watermelon. You can serve it in a salad like this recipe recommends, but I’ve heard it’s pretty amazing on its own, too.
Mint gimlets. I have become quite the gimlet girl (I prefer mine with vodka vs. gin) and a little mint and lime make this the perfect cocktail for cooling off after a long, hot day.
Spicy wings with rosemary balsamic glaze. I have a secret affinity for chicken wings that I rarely indulge. These baked ones topped with a rosemary balsamic sauce seem like a perfect make-at-home version of a restaurant favorite.
And finally, dessert. Of course. If ever there was a season to skip the chocolate and opt for fresh fruit instead, this is it. This berry tart with lemon curd mascarpone looks sweet and bright and lovely – just like a summer day.
