What could be better than seeing 6:00pm roll around and the sun still gently shining? Long summer days and backlit nights are my absolute favvveee. And on those perfect evenings, it’s only fitting to sit out on the deck and enjoy time with the ones important enough to be there for those daily moments.
This relaxing night one summer weekend, we decided to create the perfect summer dish for the patio. Mama grilled up some burgers, and I tossed together a refreshing salad complete with our very own homegrown lettuce, and filled it with the juiciest berries that only come fresh in the summer time. We mixed up a spicy schiracha and paprika mayo for some semi-homemade vegetable fries, and of course, some house-made guac (with tonssss of lime please!) Topped it off with some hibiscus iced tea and Pellegrino and you’ve got yourself a pretty darn tasty and healthy summer meal cause’ #cleaneats amirite?
It’s no question summer is the absolute best and my all time favorite. I would love to hear how you spend your summer evenings and what kind of dishes are you and your families go-to’s! Try out this combo and let me know what you think!
