As summer warms up we tend to want to do less cooking in the kitchen to help keep the house cooler. Take out is always an option, but you can also barbecue or make meals with limited cooking. And if you’re like most of us, you’re looking for new recipes to try. So here you go – enjoy!

Prawns on the Barbie

Whether you serve these over a salad or with another side dish, these prawns will hit the spot. You need a little time to let them marinate, but cooking time is mere minutes. Plus, this recipe has a dressing/dip that takes the flavor to the next level. Fire up your barbecue and get grilling!

Tropical Curried Chicken Salad

Make this salad mix in advance so it has time to chill before adding it to a plate of lettuce or making a sandwich. You can grill the chicken so you don’t heat up the house. Or for days when you’re short on time, grab a rotisserie chicken from the store. If you don’t have the Downunder Grill Rub swap it with Montreal Steak Rub or Southern Style Dry Rub.

Balsamic Fruit Shrub

Wrap up the night with a sweet and refreshing treat. Shrub is a topping you can use on ice cream, frozen yogurt, pavlovas, cakes, and more. The best part – make it ahead so it is ready when you need that something extra at the end of a day. All you need is some fruit and either Mango, Apricot, Strawberry Balsamic Vinegar or Spiced Fig, Maple & Pear Balsamic Vinegar. Summer should always taste this good!
