Strawberry jello pie is a must!  We have a strawberry farm back home that we can get fresh local strawberries from, but now I have to settle for ones from the store.  This is pretty much the same recipe my mom uses: http://allrecipes.com/recipe/fresh-strawberry-pie-i/Detail.aspx but double the filling.  My mom always sliced the strawberries so that’s what I do too!

To me when I think of summer foods, I think of BBQ and Salads.

Salads are just so refreshing in the summer. I really like Cucumber and Tomato Salad. Add garlic, lemon juice, salt and pepper, feta cheese and your good to go. 

Also Mixed Greens with blueberries, poached pears and goat cheese or blue cheese and I make a dressing with honey, balsamic vinegar and tarragon. 

And a pepper salad I am seriously addicted to. My father is Italian and has taught me the most amazing and simple recipes. Grill peppers until fully charred and black, remove skin, slice peppers and add lots of olive oil, little bit of white wine vinegar, lots of garlic, some red onion and plenty of fresh basil. Sooooo yummy!!!

Grain salads: great as a side dish or a full meal. Make a pot of quinao, millet, barley or wild rice. Add handfuls of nicely chopped/sliced seasonal veggies. This week ours had red onion, radish, chopped argula and a mix of herbs dill, cilantro and basil. Add baslamic vinegar + olive oil. Add any type of cheese like feta, ricotta salata, or goat cheese. Make it extra hearty by topping with poached or hard boiled egg. Later in summer we might use tomato, cucumber, peppers, snap/sugar peas, zucchini.
