If you are organizing a group or attending an event that asks you to feed the masses, it may be difficult to know what to do. You do not want to hide your precious time in the kitchen! Use these quick and easy recipes for healthy summer dishes to delight the crowd and even bring them to dinner.
. 1 Watermelon salad
Five ingredients with watermelon and avocado make this recipe easy, refreshing and fast. The only risk: Keep the salad chilled and serve immediately. Avocado does not have a long shelf life – especially in the sun.
2. Spinach Parmesan Cheesebalden
In this yummy dip there are some special ingredient swaps that make the cheeseball better than the average milk treat – and your score will not be smarter! Remember to keep it cool, shape it before serving. And some healthier serving options like cucumbers and wholemeal crackers.
3. Simple Lemon Salad
Grapefruit and oranges are the stars of this colorful, aromatic show, which is rounded off with a beautiful vinaigrette of honey and lemon juice. Throw some fresh thyme over it and you can start!
4. Strawberry Shortcake
You heard us right: Cake! In any healthy diet, there is room to party and a little sugar, but if you want to treat yourself, you can also take it smart. This recipe contains controlled portions (if you stop at a cupcake!) And smart ingredient changes to lower the sugar content.
5. Peach granita
Granita is another great way to indulge in the summer, especially instead of high-calorie ice cream. This recipe contains peach, but if you prefer a different fruit, try it. All you need is fruit, honey and whole milk – plus time to freeze (and fork) well.
6. Greek Pasta Salad
There are some ingredients in this recipe, but the best part is that you just throw everything together and serve! And you can still enjoy it if you miss an item or add other vegetables as a side dish. Try to include the chickpeas, no matter what, because they contain a lot of vegetable protein.
7. Summer melon salad
For every job there is a tool and another tool that makes things look pretty! Sure, you can dice the watermelon and melon as usual, but if you want to make it a little better, use a melon baller. Do not forget the lemon zest. It will give your sweet side more brightness and contrast.
8. Healthy Drinks
Ok, these are four recipes in one. In humid weather, however, liquids are essential, and water is no fun every day. So get an infusion or try one of our mocktails to moisturize your group.
9. Grilled shrimp salad
You need protein to stay active! Barbecuing some shrimp or chicken kebabs with vegetables is a great way to bring a typical summer salad to life. Create your own vinaigrette (details included) to reduce total calories.
