favorite summer recipe roundup

I have been trying lots of new summer-y recipes recently & I have found some winners that we pretty much crave every night. These are all super easy to make, vegetarian (although you could add meat to most, if you so desired) & crazy delicious but don't take my word for it...try them out for yourself!! 

I made this with red quinoa because it's what I had on hand & oh my!!! it's so delicious!! 

These are by far my favorite & so easy to make! My favorite part about Katie's recipe though, is the Spicy Peanut Sauce - I seriously could eat it by the spoonful! 

Quinoa Fruit Salad with Honey Lime Dressing by Two Peas & Their Pod
This is even great for breakfast & the quinoa adds a little bit of protein! YUM!

Creed was craving potato salad for our 4th of July picnic so I decided to try out this super easy recipe, I am not a huge fan of mayonaise so I really loved how light this was. 

I always make a double batch of these & freeze them, so we always have some on hand when I don't feel like cooking! They taste good with a bun or just on there own with a side of salsa & sour cream! 

I also made these for our 4th of July picnic & they are already all gone!! They were soooo good! I can't wait to make them again! 

Okay, now I'm starving!! I hope you enjoy & feel free to share some of your favorite summertime meals in the comments section! I'm always looking for new recipes to try! Happy Friday! xo.
