As much as I love baking and cooking, I just can’t stand the heat in summertime and being in the kitchen for hours on a hot summer day is not nice at all to me. This is why I’m trying everyday to come up with some quick, healthy, easy and fresh meals to eat at lunch when I don’t really want to boil some water for no reason. So here is a little selection of fresh summer meals I like to put together on those days…
I shared the recipe of my favourite summer salad last week on here and this one is very similar to that original salad I always like to go for, but this time I try and adapted it to what I had in my kitchen cupboard and since I had no cheese, I replaced it with some avocado cubes (yes, I love avocado) which gave the salad a nice fruity touch and some more texture, and added in some sesame seeds as well, as I think they pair amazing with all the other flavors that were going on in there! I love the croutons and how they make the salad a very complete dish without making it too heavy in the slightest.
This is a classic, I know, but I so much love the combination of flavors of tuna and mayo between two slices of a whole wheat toasted sandwich bread. It evokes so many fresh summer-y feelings with the fish flavor but in a fresh and quick meal that would be great for that picnic I’m still planning! No recipe is required here, just toast your bread and place some mayo and tuna in between, that’s all, but it really is delicious and fresh and summer-y, which make so perfect for it to fit between my favourite summer meals!
