My Favorite Summer Dinner Recipe

You guys know I’m all about trying new recipes and taking all the recipes I find online and “health-ifying” them! New word? I think yes!

Anyways…since gaining a husband, one of the many benefits is living with a master chef and eating more food cooked on the grill. There is nothing like the the crispness you get from the grill! In our relationship I pick the recipes, he grills and we both help to cook. #Goals

I really should learn to grill it myself…maybe one day. HA!

There’s something about grilling out by the pool, sipping on a cold kombucha (or beer sometimes) with friends that just screams summer!

P.S. Today is the first day of summer!!! YAY!

This recipe is a full meal that is perfect for summer nights! Enjoy 🙂
