Happy June! Summer is here and I'm just throwing a little party for myself. I fully embrace this season and live for the long hot days of this season.
This month I'm sharing recipes that celebrate summer including a few seafood favorites inspired by some of my summer beach trips, a vegetarian cookout burger plus the perfect coleslaw to go with it, and a summer pasta salad that is no short of swoon-worthy.

5 Healthy & Tasty Recipes to Try This June
This recipe was inspired by the shrimp ceviche I enjoyed at a restaurant on a beach in Florida. I made this simpler to make using already pre-cooked shrimp BUT the flavors are the same as ceviche and will have you dreaming of the beach. My Shrimp Salsa is the perfect way to kick off your summer.
If you are looking for an easy vegetarian or vegan burger idea for a cookout, this is it! You can make your own patties BUT if you don't have time a big portobello mushroom cap works great. I marinate my Portobello Mushroom Burger first to give it loads of flavor.
Nothing says summer dinners to me more than shrimp skewers. I adore this Buffalo Shrimp Skewers recipe that can easily be made on an indoor or outdoor grill.
Looking for a healthy coleslaw? My Broccoli Slaw features Greek yogurt instead of mayo, honey instead of sugar, and crunch pumpkin or sunflower seeds. It's totally irresistable!
Finally, I love how fresh and flavorful tomatoes are in summer. This Bruschetta Pasta Salad uses a bunch and features fresh basil too. It's perfect for a weekday dinner or even a cookout. So colorful and delicious.
