For a while, I wasn’t sure if the sun was ever going to emerge again. Day after day of rain, wind, and all around gloomy weather left me wondering if summer was actually coming this year. I guess all the wishful thinking and pulling out the summer wardrobe paid off now that the sun (and heat) is suddenly here in full swing!

And it’s just in time for the season’s kickoff, Memorial Day weekend! I absolutely love all of the dishes and foods of the summer season. The abundance of different salads. Fresh from the garden fruits and veggies. All the grilled foods. And of course, ice cream.

Just because it’s a holiday, doesn’t mean that everything you eat has to be unhealthy. I’ve shared a few tips on healthy habits to keep in mind for Memorial Day before, and now it’s time to share some healthy Memorial Day recipes that are equally as delicious as they are good for you!
