Check out these delicious Spring/Summer recipes to try this season.
Hello everyone. It’s Spring, and we are heading towards summer soon. I can’t believe we are already heading towards summertime. Since last year as we all know, life has been quite different.
I am done with my vaccination, so now I look forward to the new normal.
Today’s post is about summertime foods. Summer is all about fresh and raw foods—salads, juices, and quick meals that don’t take too much of our time.
I am sharing with you all my five recipes in this post that you can make during this spring and summer season. These are just the ideas.
You can add or substitute them with any of the other recipes you like. So let’s dig in.
Kids Friendly Summer Salad
My version of summer salad is one of my daughter’s favorite. She prefers her vegetables and fruits raw than cooked. Hence salads have become a major part of her diet.
I personally like the fresh flavors of mint and citrus and the crunch of walnuts in a bite. I have added some onions, tomatoes, and chili flakes for some heat for the grown-up version. But it is totally optional.

Corn And Sweet Pepper Quesadillas:
Another version of less cooked vegetables according to my daughter’s request. I have used roasted to give it a little extra flavor. And, of course, sweet peppers.
I have added garlic salt and roasted cumin powder for the aromatics and flavor. And used sharp cheddar cheese and mozzarella cheese for the gooey cheesy goodness.
I used small soft taco shells and roasted them a bit on a skillet to give them a little crunch. Also, it won’t make the quesadillas soggy.
Corn and sweet pepper can act as a base filling. You can add meat to it or any other vegetables according to your preference.
For the grown-up version, you can add cajun season for some heat or green chilies. Here’s what I like to do.
I roast normal tortillas on a grill and add roasted corn and roasted sweet peppers along with onions for the grown-up version. It gives a delicious rustic flair to these quesadillas.
Now that’s a delicious meal, isn’t it? Check out the recipe here: Corn And Sweet Pepper Quesadillas.
Quick Mango Strawberry Salsa:
A simple and quick salsa that works wonders as a side for your summer meal. Mangoes and strawberries add a sweet and tangy flavor to this salsa.
And the bright colors make it more appealing to our little family members. For the grown-up version, add some green chilies or red chili flakes to give it some heat. Squeeze in some fresh lemon juice, and you are good to go.

Pineapple Mint Lemonade:
Let’s talk about summer drinks. I already have a ton of drink recipes on the website, but this fits the best.
The base of this delicious drink is Pineapple juice. I have layered it with some mint leaves.
To balance the sweetness of pineapple juice, I have added lemon juice to it.
The primary flavors that pop here are Black salt and roasted cumin seeds powder.
I have added a minimal amount of black salt to the recipe. For people who are new to the ingredient, it can take some time to get used to it.
Pineapple Mint Lemonade is perfect for relaxing and sipping a cold drink on your front porch or back yard. There is a grown-up version, too, for this drink. Add some vodka to it.

Caramelized Nectarine With Ice Cream:
One of my favorite desserts during spring summertime is Caramelized Nectarine With Ice cream. The sweet fruity flavor of nectarine with vanilla ice cream a treat in itself.
For the added drama, I added some cardamom powder. It is a real treat to your senses.
