Quick and Easy Spring into Summer Meals

As we move into late spring and early summer, the daylight hours increase and so do our opportunities to be outside enjoying the evenings and participating in sport activities or gardening projects, to name just a couple of the warmer weather's delights. Consequently, we often want to spend less time preparing meals. And, as the weather warms, many of us have a smaller appetite and desire lighter fare for dinner. So, it's great to have ideas for a few light summer meals that translate into the perfect dinner in just a few minutes.

The following World's Healthiest Foods recipes fit this spring into summer bill. These recipes take full advantage of the abundance of fresh produce that is becoming available. They're hearty enough to serve as a full meal, especially when you are looking for something light. And, they require very little or no cooking. Virtually all the preparation time (20 minutes or less) is spent assembling ingredients, so you'll be quickly back outside having dinner on your deck and enjoying your garden instead of stuck in the kitchen monitoring a hot stove. Enjoy!
