Mediterranean Salad with Rotisserie Chicken – I grab a rotisserie chicken on the way home from the pool for this one.

Watermelon Gazpacho – You can serve this in a bowl as a main dish or in shooter glasses as an appetizer.

Traditional Ceviche – This recipe is a favorite make-ahead dish!

Avocado Bar – This is a fun build-you-own meal.

Quinoa Edamame Lettuce Wraps – Not just for a meatless Monday.

As you may have heard me say many times before, dresses are my go-to way to dress for any occasion and a maxi or midi dress can be casual or dressed up. They are easy to throw on and accessorize without a lot of fuss!
