June is here and I couldn’t be more excited for summer recipes. We’re finally getting warmer, sunny days here in Chicago and I’ve been stocking my kitchen with seasonal produce for quick, super fresh lunches and dinners. This time last year I made this simple fruit salad that I can’t wait to make again. So easy and so delicious! You know I had to share my go-to, 30 seasonal recipes to cook in June to kick off the month.
What’s in season in June?
This month be sure to stock up on:

Tony and I are hoping to grow some herbs in our new backyard, plus tons of gorgeous flowers.
These recipes are for firing up the grill, maybe laying out a picnic blanket and enjoying on your lawn or patio all month long. Some of these dinners can easily be made on the grill or stovetop, and are delicious paired with fresh salads. You know I included plenty of fun apps & treats, too.
