Wind down after this holiday weekend with these light, fresh, easy to make dinner recipes! With Midweek Menu 181 you can have a bright, flavorful meal in under 30 minutes, not to mention the leftovers to make life easy.
After a big holiday, I always want to kick my feet up, relax, and forget about cooking dinner. That’s why I always go for super easy weeknight meals after a holiday feast, this menu perfectly combines bright summer flavors with quick and easy cooking.
The star of this show is Shrimp Salad! You can prepare this light, cool, refreshing main dish ahead of time. Adding to the menu is Easy Marinated Tomatoes that have a wonderful herbaceous flavor and can also be made ahead of time.
You can bake and serve these next two dishes in under 30 minutes! Roasted Broccoli is a 5-star rated dish that even the pickiest veggie eaters will enjoy. To polish off this meal, serve these addictive, crunchy Cheese Straws. YUM!
