It’s been close to 80 degrees the last few days and it is only expected to get warmer so I decided to take advantage of the nice weather and make a simple dinner for some friends! It required very little prep work. Each item was delicious and it all came together so well!
Herb Salmon with 3 sides!
I love all the color and variety on the plate with very little work involved!
Nothing better than wild Alaska king salmon. On sale for $19.99 lb!
I made a herb topping for the salmon which added flavor and kept the fish super moist while it cooked. I blended mine in a food processor but it could easily be done by simply chopping the herbs really fine and adding the olive oil. I used fresh thyme, basil and parsley and blended it with olive oil. Use whatever herbs you have on hand.
Slather it on the salmon before cooking in the oven. I cooked my salmon on 375 until it flaked with a fork.
DO NOT OVERCOOK!!
Fresh asparagus is so delicious this time of year and the market has local asparagus for $2.99 lb.
Lightly cover with olive oil, salt and pepper and bake with the salmon until just fork tender.
Nothing screams summer like fresh corn on the cob! It is simple to cook, adds a ton to a meal and makes for a yummy side dish!
5 ears for $3 is a killer deal!!!
Beautiful and simple yet so perfect for warm weather!
Serve warm with butter and salt!
This quinoa salad may look complicate but it is actually really great. You can make it ahead of time and let it sit in the fridge. Not only does the flavor get better with time but the ability to make it ahead of time really makes for a stress free dinner.
Cook quinoa according to package directions and set aside to cool. Add any add ons. I added chopped tomatoes, chopped fresh basil, black beans, pine nuts, chopped green olives (from the olive bar), green onions, crrumbled herb bousine cheese and a red wine vinaigrette.
Super simple, quick to make and so flavorful!
The salmon was simple yet looks dramatic!
Other awesome summer meal options are available in the meat case. Everything comes pre marinated to save you time and money. Think pork chops, chicken skewers, ribs, chicken breast and more!
Don’t forget to satisfy everyones thirst on these hot days with mix and match beers. Over 25 cans to choose from and well over 100 bottles which can all be mixed and matched to create the perfect 6 pack. Great for gifts, parties or just to have on hand!
