DealDash Summer Foods: July Edition

July is here, and it’s time for some tasty summer foods. Here are a couple of ideas from DealDash. Use these ideas, and enjoy your summer even more!

July is upon us, the weather is getting hotter – summer is here! Most people eat a little differently in the summer than in the winter. The foods that people tend to reach for in the summer are typically lighter, easy to prepare, and fun to eat outdoors. If you’re looking for some fresh suggestions for summer foods, look no further than these suggestions from DealDash.

Fresh Homemade Pizza

To begin with, a fun summer food staple is pizza! However, don’t get greasy and expensive delivery! Make that pizza yourself. When you make pizza yourself, you control the amount of cheese and toppings, and you can make it however you like. In the summer, many people have gardens with freshly grown veggies that are perfect to put on your

homemade pizza. Choose things from your garden (or the farmer’s market), such as green peppers, onions, tomatoes, and even eggplant! Did you know that homemade pizza is the perfect summer food because you can even grill it outside! If you would like to learn how to grill a pizza outside, The Pioneer Woman has an article with instructions for a perfectly grilled pizza.

Summer Foods (and Drinks!)

Next, don’t forget, July is one of the hottest months of the year. If you plan on spending a lot of time outdoors, you will need cool and refreshing drinks. You want to make drinks that are refreshing, have a high water content for hydration, and are suitable for the whole family. Here is a list of drinks that you should try with your summer foods this July.

  • Strawberry Lemonaid
  • Thai Iced Tea
  • Shirley Temple
  • Arnold Palmer
  • Dole Whip Lemonaid
  • Sweet Iced Tea
  • Sparkling Limeaid

 Tiny Strawberry Shortcakes

Finally, strawberry shortcake is the perfect dessert for summer. However, you know what’s even better? Tiny strawberry shortcakes. Many people love regular strawberry shortcake, and tiny ones have the same great taste and are a yummy food to serve your family. All you need are pre-made angel cake cups (or make your own in a muffin tin), freshly sliced strawberries, and whipped cream! They are a great way to let your kids “help” in the kitchen. After slicing the strawberries for them and gather all of the ingredients, your kids can put them together themselves. Fun!
