We’re up to 90 degrees and summer is definitely upon us! I don’t know if it is hot where you are, but it’s not always easy to want to crank up the oven during these hot, sultry days. I thought I’d use this blog post to highlight my top 5 favorite summer recipes. Either a no-bake or out on the grill recipe,  you won’t have to heat up your house to make them. Just click on the picture and it will send you directly to the recipe.

Blueberry Spinach Salad
Looking for another great summer salad? Look no further. This Spinach & Blue is fresh & delicious!

Nothing says summer fresh like a spinach salad with plump blueberries and a tasty blueberry vinaigrette.


Spring Rolls with Spicy-Mango Dipping Sauce
Fresh spring rolls with spicy-mango dipping sauce.

The spicy-mango dipping sauce made from yogurt creates a delicious dip for these fresh spring rolls. You really aren’t limited to the fruits and veggies you can put inside.


Coconut sticky chicken skewers
Coconut chicken skewers covered in a spicy sweet & sour sauce make these skewers unforgettable!

This recipe is a must-try if you love to grill. Marinate the chicken in coconut milk with a little ginger and spice. Then add an outrageously yummy tasting sticky sweet and spicy sauce . I make this recipe over and over again for company and it never disappoints!


Asian Pear-Chevre Salad with Maple-Dijon Dressing
Crisp Asian -Pear & Chevre Salad with Maple-Dijon dressing & pine nuts.

I’m not sure if it’s the maple-Dijon dressing, the pine nuts and chevre cheese, or the combination of all that makes this salad work, but it does, perfectly.



Diary-free whipped topping on Strawberry-rhubarb compote
Serve up a delicious gluten-free, dairy-free, and refined sugar-free Strawberry-Rhubarb compote with spiced Coconut Cream.

And finally, one of my favorite desserts. Okay, I may have cheated a little with this one because you do have to heat the compote on the stove, but I guarantee it’s worth it! And it’s dairy-free! You might be thinking, “That looks like whipped cream to me.” Actually, it is whipped coconut milk and quite yummy at that! A perfect dessert fro someone with multiple food allergies.
