Chili Lime Corn on the Cob

Nothing says summer like corn on the cob. It’s an American favorite and this recipe puts a nice twist of flavor into it. Remember, corn is a starchy vegetable, so serve it with some lean protein and a low-carb vegetable like green beans, zucchini, or a salad.

Fresh Black Bean Salsa

This salsa is better than anything you will buy in a jar! It’s delicious, quick, and uses all fresh ingredients that you might already have in your kitchen. If you don’t want to serve it with chips, try it with cucumbers, celery or jicama. It would also make a great topping for tacos!

Watermelon, Arugula, and Feta Salad

Save yourself time prepping this recipe by buying watermelon that is already cut and cubed!

Guacamole Stuffed Cherry Tomatoes

For an even shorter prep time, use store-bought guacamole to make this recipe.

Blueberry Green Tea Smoothie

Summer is a great time for smoothies, so we’re bringing you a unique bonus recipe from the American Diabetes Association’s Simply Smoothies cookbook by Linda Gassenheimer.

Peach Freeze Smoothie

Try this tasty smoothie for breakfast or lunch. It’s June, so you could experiment with fresh peaches since summer is the peak season!

Greek Orzo Salad with Peas, Lemon, and Kalamata Olives

Add rotisserie chicken or grilled shrimp to turn this salad into an entrée. Otherwise, it can be served as a tasty side dish to complement grilled chicken or fish.

Zucchini and Fresh Corn Succotash

Cook fresh corn on the cob for this recipe by simmering it in boiling water for 8 minutes. Let the ears of corn cool, and then use a sharp knife to cut the kernels off the cob.

Frozen Yogurt Fruit Pops

You can make this recipe with any fruit and flavor of yogurt. Try mango chunks with pineapple yogurt, or kiwi halves with strawberry yogurt. You could also try other toppings like coconut or sprinkles instead of pecans.

Green Bean “Fries”

French fries are an American favorite food, but they're also loaded with unhealthy fat, calories, and carbohydrate. Try these “fries” for a healthier alternative and a way to help your kids eat more veggies.
