Jenna Laughs has been pretty dessert-heavy lately. Seems like I am doing a whole lot of baking the last few weeks! So I wanted to go through my non-dessert dishes and post some great ideas for summer parties and barbecues.
First up we have Barbecue Spice Rubbed Pork Chops. These are bone-in thick cut pork chops, rubbed down with a spicy/sweet rub and grilled to caramelized perfection. You're welcome.
Greek Cucumber Salad is light, fresh and the perfect side dish on a hot summer day. It has 4 ingredients: cucumbers, tomatoes, feta cheese and olive oil. Couldn't be more simple and delicious!
These Mediterranean Turkey Burgers with Homemade Tzatziki Sauce are perfectly light and flavorful. The tzatziki sauce is tangy and thick, a lovely alternative to typical burger toppings. I served these with oven baked fries and it was a perfect meal.
Pasta with Lemon and Basil. This unusual flavor combination is heavenly. So light and refreshing - and loaded with tons of fresh basil. I made this last winter when lemons were in season, but now we have lovely fresh basil in season.
This grilled chicken is so flavorful, juicy, cheesy and wonderful. The fresh tomato salsa puts it on a whole other level. Then to make it even better - I made a flavored chili lime butter to brush on corn. This is definitely one of my favorite dishes for the summer.
Finally, to wash it all down - try Sparkling Lime Lemonade. It's super tart, which is how I like my lemonade.
I hope everyone has so many fun barbecues this summer!
