Summer Pasta Salad

Pasta salad does it again! This summer pasta salad will quickly become a go-to easy, healthy lunch for you. It’s perfect for meal prep, for an office lunch, or just a simple no-heat option on those hot days when you just want something you can grab out of the fridge. Pasta salads are one of my favorite recipes because you can customize them in so many different ways. I made this one with roasted corn, bacon, & the creamiest pesto! Perfect summer flavors and ingredients. You can use whatever pasta you want and add any extra veggies that sound good. Let me know what you think if you try this summer pasta salad!

Salmon Pasta Salad

Salmon pasta salad, a recipe packed with protein & veggies! I used chickpea pasta to give it some extra protein but you’ll get plenty from the salmon.

Vegan Spinach & Artichoke Dip

This vegan spinach and artichoke dip is a delicious appetizer that is perfect for a get together or football sunday recipe. You might want to make a double batch, just a warning. It’s made with cashews and coconut milk as the base. It also reheats well so I’ve been snacking on this all week!

Chicken Teriyaki Pineapple Bowls

If this recipe doesn’t scream summer, I don’t know what does. While taking a tropical vacation isn’t really an option right now, recreating tropical meals at home is! Get in the summer spirit with these chicken teriyaki pineapple boats. They’re so fun and actually really simple. They take about 20 minutes to throw together. Eating out of a pineapple is 10x better than eating off a boring ole plate!

Air Fryer Buffalo Tofu Bites

A delicious and fun plant based recipe that you can make for dinner, as an appetizer, or even a healthy snack! We’re trying to do more meatless dinners over here but it can get boring if you rely on the same recipe as your go to. I definitely fall into that habit. Well the good thing is nothing is boring about these air fryer buffalo tofu bites ! Even if you fall into the rut of making them over and over again (which you might because they’re amazing).

* 10 ounces pasta of choice orecchiette pasta or other short pasta

* 1 cup of corn, cooked. I like to air fry corn on the cob then cut it off. This is about 2 ears of corn!

* 4 slices bacon cooked and crumbled 

* 1/4 cup diced red onions 

* 1 avocado, diced 

* 1/4 cup feta cheese 


1/4 cup plain Greek yogurt 

1/2 cup pesto (I like the vegan pesto from Trader Joe’s) 


Cook the pasta according to package instructions. 

When it’s done, rinse and let cool. 

Combine all of the ingredients besides the Greek yogurt and pesto into a large bowl. Stir together 

In a small bowl, whisk the Greek yogurt & pesto together 

Add the creamy pesto to the salad & mix together
