Coolest Summer Foods
Corn on the Cob - Summer is the best time to get corn on the cob and this is one food you do not want to miss out on this year. Throw it on the grill and leave the husks on to try something different.
Grilled Burgers - There's no better time than summer to grill outdoors and turn mealtime into a summer recreational activity. Burgers are a great way to get started, but also consider grilling your veggies like corn, peppers, onions and more. Not only will it make your food taste better; it will keep the heat out of the kitchen.
Chicken - You can't go wrong with a light entrée in the summer, especially in this heat. Grilled or fried chicken is always a great way to experiment with different marinades and flavors to spice things up a bit. Just because it's a light entrée, doesn't mean there can't be great flavor.
Bacon, Lettuce and Tomato Sandwiches - BLTs are great throughout the year, but are even better when served with fresh ingredients. Consider growing your own lettuce and tomatoes and serve with thick sliced bacon for even more flavor.
Fresh Fruit - Summer fruit is something everyone can enjoy, and with so many different options, you're bound to find at least one you like. This summer, try a fruit-picking outing. You'll get plenty of fruit and learn about farming and agriculture in the process.
