The Best 20 Healthy Summer Fruit and Vegetable Recipes

Eating a rainbow of colors is so easy in the Summer. Let’s celebrate the bounty of summer’s fruits and vegetables with healthy recipes.
Best Healthy Summer Fruit & Vegetable Recipes -

Summer truly is the time for a rainbow of delicious fruits and vegetables, from purple eggplant to red tomatoes to green lettuce. The list of in season summer produce is long. I picked some of my favorite fruits and vegetables and highlight them in healthy recipes.  I love the mosaic of flavors and the ease of summer vegetables.  We have gotten a few zucchini from our garden and a cucumber is almost ready.  I am still waiting for our tomatoes to ripen, but our basil is going gangbusters.  It makes me so happy to go outside and pick something my husband grew.  What is your favorite summer fruit or vegetables?

    All those dishes look phenomenal. I am a huge fan of pavlova, and made my own recipe of one not too long ago! I love your idea of using mixed berries. My mouth is watering over that cherry almond smoothie. I can't wait to try it out. I nominated you for the "8 Photos of Happiness" award (as your photos of delicious food ALWAYS makes me happy).
