The fresh juicy flavors of summer are in full swing right now and I’m loving finding new ways to enjoy them in meals and snacks. Getting inspiration from the season is my favorite way to infuse fun and excitement in the kitchen — something I totally recommend if you feel like you’re in a cooking rut.

BBQ roasted chickpeas add crunch and smokiness to these summer inspired sweet potatoes made with delicious  Organic Campari® tomatoes, avocado, corn and fresh cilantro. They’re easy to cook up and assemble and make for a super fresh and plant-forward meal. 

These would also be perfect alongside any main dish at your summer BBQ and you can even grill the sweet potatoes before topping them with the tomato salad.  A great way to add more plants (and fiber!) to your backyard BBQ!

At just the right size and with the perfect balance of sweetness and acidity, they add so much juicy flavor to this easy summer recipe!

SUNSET® produce is always in my cart at the grocery store because of its unmatched quality and their overall dedication to freshness and innovation in the produce department. I love their unique variety of tomatoes, especially these Organic Campari® tomatoes. 

The fresh flavors of the tomatoes along with the smoky chickpeas and cool avocado come together to tie everything and the sweet potato together really well. It’s sort of like a salad in a sweet potato and I’m all about it!

Summer Zoodle Avocado and Peach Salad

This summer zoodle, avocado and peach salad is bursting with flavor from in season produce and packed with nutrition in every bite! It’s summer in a bowl!

Some of the best (in my opinion!) veggies are at their peak of freshness this time of year, and what better way to enjoy them than to throw them all together a salad as delicious as it is beautiful!

Take advantage of summer produce by making this summer zoodle, avocado, and peach salad! Zucchini is in season in the summer and so are peppers, peaches, berries, tomatoes and more! Check out the full list here and stop by your local farmers’ market to score some locally grown produce.

To be honest, I’m not a huge fan of fruit in salads, but juicy, ripe peaches add a sweetness to this salad that perfectly compliments the different veggies.

Zucchini is one of my favorite veggies and goes great with all things pumpkin as evidenced by my recipe for pumpkin zucchini bread and this one for paleo pumpkin zucchini banana bars!

The Perfect Summer Salad Dressing

I find this salad tastes great simply with olive oil and vinegar, however if you are looking for something a little more exciting, here are a few of my favorite dressings:

Summer Salad Wine Pairing

This salad is the perfect for bringing to a summer get together, because there’s something in it that everyone can like. Pick up a bottle of a dry white wine like a Sauvignon Blanc. My favorite is this one from Francis Coppola!

** Grilled chicken, salmon or skirt steak would be great on top! To keep it vegetarian but add a little heartiness add 1 1/2 cup cooked quinoa, farro, or brown rice.
