I’ve got margarita popsicles, street corn hot dogs, BBQ chicken nachos, Caprese pasta salad, bacon avocado & corn salad, watermelon salsa, and the best avocado feta dip recipes here. Enjoy!

Margarita Popsicles

I am so excited to share these Margarita Popsicles! Make these and store them in your freezer for any get-togethers, dinners, or parties you have this summer. These turned out so delicious and they’re so fun! The perfect cocktail treat for hot summer nights, these popsicles are refreshing and full of flavor. They are sure to be a hit! And such a cute twist on a frozen margarita, too.

Street Corn Hot Dogs

How fun are these Street Corn Hot Dogs?? It’s such a unique and easy way to switch up a typical hot dog. Everyone in my family loved these and I’ll definitely be making them again this Memorial Day weekend – they’d be great for Fourth of July, too! I love street corn – or elote – and this was the perfect way to pair it with a classic dish. The spicy lime aioli really gives these a kick. It’s a recipe you can make all summer long!

BBQ Chicken Nachos

You’re going to love these BBQ Chicken Nachos. Another simple, delicious recipe for the Super Bowl or any gathering. I love sheet pan nachos and you can’t go wrong with a BBQ chicken version! They are so easy to make in a pinch, and these are most definitely a crowd pleaser for an appetizer or party snack. 

Caprese Pasta Salad

I love creating fun recipes for holidays that are on-theme! This 4th of July Caprese Salad is a delicious, healthy, and patriotic dish for any gathering, pool party, grill out, or BBQ. It’s made with fresh ingredients that taste like summer and will go great with any outdoor event. It’s a fun twist on the classic caprese salad, and the best part is that you can put it together in just a few minutes. It couldn’t be an easier or more fun recipe!

Bacon, Avocado, & Roasted Corn Salad

A flavorful, healthy side dish to spice up the normal salad you’d bring to a bbq or cookout. This bacon, avocado, and roasted corn salad is packed with flavor but doesn’t require much work to make. Now when you say you’re bringing the salad, you can surprise people with this tasty dish!

Watermelon Salsa

Save this watermelon salsa for your next bbq or outdoor gathering. It is so refreshing and takes no time to throw together! I love creating recipes like this for the summer – light and easy and delicious on a hot day! It’s got all the best summer flavors: mint, watermelon, cucumber, lime, plus a little spice. I’m envisioning having this while relaxing by the pool with a good book and a cold drink, too. 

5 Minute Avocado Feta Dip

If you need a super easy and healthy snack or appetizer, try this 5 Minute Avocado Feta Dip! I think everyone should make this delicious recipe this summer. It’s my go to because it takes about 5 minutes to throw together and is always delicious. The dip is very flavorful but made with all fresh ingredients. You can bring this to any gathering, or just have it on hand for a midday break. There’s something so satisfying about a good dip, and this avocado feta version is no exception.
