Favorite Summer Foods

posted May 03, 2016 16:44:16 by JamesG2252
What are the favorite foods that you typically like to eat in the summertime? Of course, I like the usual BBQ fare of hotdogs and hamburgers, but I also love all the summer salads like potato salad and tuna macaroni salad. I also love all the fresh vegetables from the garden like tomatoes, cucumbers, and squash.

I agree James G2252 - and add to it fresh collard greens, okra, Black eyed peas and ripe tomatoes all fresh from the garden. I lived in the south for a time and it was available much earlier in the season. It is just as good here in the Ohio valley country but not as early.

My wife makes a tortellini salad with baby spinach, sun-dried tomatoes, roasted red peppers, and artichoke hearts with a delicious garlic lemon dressing. It is a wonderful summer salad for any BBQ or get-together. And let's not forget...ice cold watermelon!

Ya'll are making me hungry. I'll ditto all of the above and add some fresh, cold, ripe watermelon to the mix for dessert. My family also likes tomato biscuits. That's a slice of fresh tomato on a hot biscuit with mayo.

Jenny Vance, that sounds fantastic! One of my favorite meals growing up was warm stewed tomatoes on toast. Not exactly a summer meal (more of a winter comfort food) but still delicious!

I love watermelon and ice cream. To be at a cookout eating all of the luscious foods available from the barbie and then topping them off with fresh sweet watermelon, and later some velvety smooth and delicious ice cream is nothing short of heaven here on earth!

It's the one time of the year that I get to eat all of my favorite fruits like white flesh nectarines and Rainer cherries. I look forward to eating other foods on the BBQ, but the fruit is what I really love the most.

Give me a big old steak, cooked medium rare and I am a very happy camper! I think my favorite thing about summer foods is the grilling that you do in summer. I am also a fan of foods cooked over a campfire.

During summer, I like eating fruits a lot, especially watermelons. Cold drinks are also essential. I like drinking ice cold sparkling water. I'm trying not to eat too much ice cream these years.
