I was all set to post my favorite super-easy summer recipes when I realized I wrote about them last year. Ooops. Below is a recap of my favorite favorite, but be sure to visit last year’s summer grilling menu post for some delish souvlaki grilled chicken kabobs, creamy pasta salad, and yogurt-cucumber tzatziki recipes. Bee’s had this at his birthday party two years in a row now, but he’s not complaining.
Though it looks like he is. Poor guy was sick on his big day. But I promise, he eats this!
For a quick and easy summer appetizer, our go-to recipe has always been grilled Naan bread. You can prep it in a few minutes, throw it on the grill for a minute or two, and serve it accompanied by items you can pick up at your nearest grocery store. It. Could. Not. Be. Easier. Or yummier. True story.
For the pita, use Naan or pocketless pita bread.
Use a silicone brush or olive oil mister to lightly cover in olive oil.
Sprinkle with fresh ground pepper and kosher or sea salt. If desired, add some chopped rosemary.
Grill each side until lightly toasted, slice into triangles or strips and serve with any or all of the following (many of these items can be found at the olive bar if your grocery store has one):
- feta crumbles
- dolmadas (stuffed grape leaves)
- roasted red peppers (grill or buy in jars)
- tzatziki (we’ve bought this at Wegmans, but you can make it following this tzatziki recipe)
- chopped cucumber, dressed lightly in EVOO if desired
My kids devour this stuff, it’s so good! In fact, I’m craving it right now. Truth be told, I love mine with just the hummus and chopped cukes so you don’t even need to get all fancy with it. It’s on par with my three-ingredient yogurt pie. With a lavender martini on the side you might as well be in heaven.
And with that, it’s link-up time! NOTE: THERE’S TWO PLACES TO LINK UP TODAY. Since summer is kicking off, I’m fired up to read all about your favorite summer recipes. Post those directly below, it’ll stay open all month in case you want to post after Memorial Day! .
Right below the recipe section is the place to link up your other Refresh Your Nest posts— DIY projects, crafts, organizing ideas, non-summery recipes, etc. That section will remain open all month long as well, so come back and link up as the month progresses. Maybe I’ll feature your project in an epic monthly feature post like yesterday’s edition, did you see it?
Not to get ahead of myself, but June’s theme is party ideas and it will go live on June 29th. But back to this month’s parties…
