Let’s talk about veggies. You know, those colorful things that sit in the back of your fridge? Go grab them and let’s get started.
Picture this - you just moved into a new home, your friends are coming over for the first time, and you want everything to be perfect. The pillows are fluffed. The burgers are on the grill. The wine is poured. But something is missing. The vegetables, perhaps? And, before you ask — no, potato chips do not count as your vegetable.
Okay. Now that the scene is set let's dive into a basic summer recipe that is sure to wow. I love zucchini because it's simple, easy to make and delicious. Here are the 4 easy steps I take to make the perfect summer squash.
Other summer veggies that I like to showcase are... corn, cucumbers and peppers. Corn is a given for your cookout. Cucumbers go great on a veggie plate or on any salad really. Peppers are possibly the most versatile. Throw them on the grill, like a zucchini, add them to the veggie plate, make chicken skewers or add them to a salad. Not only are you making your plate aesthetically pleasing, you’re also fueling that precious body of yours.
Now go off and use your veggie superpowers to make the world a better place or just wow your guest at your next dinner party.
