18 Best Summer Recipes | savour

Summer is great, but it makes us panic. It’s a favorite culinary paradox: There are so many great seasonal ingredients to cook with. While our kitchens are bursting with tomatoes, berries, watermelons, and zucchini—one way or another, always plenty of zucchini—we understand whether we’re going to grill this or fry that, whether to turn that bushel of zucchini into a salad or soup. Fortunately, there are no wrong answers, as our most popular summer recipes appear. So shoot, line up your summer playlist, and don’t think too much about it. Just get cooking.
