Saturdays with Nichole: Favorite Summertime Foods


Even though summer doesn't officially start until June 21st, I consider Memorial weekend the beginning of summer. There are cookouts and barbecues, grilled foods and cold salads, fresh fruit and alcoholic beverages galore. Bathing suits, beach towels, sun block and pool floats. What in the world could be better than that?

Summer is absolutely 100% my favorite time of the year. Aside from all of the things above, flip flops are my shoe of choice. Iced coffee is even more delicious when its 80+ degrees out. Summer dresses. Free highlights in my hair from the sun. Weekends at the beach. I'm getting giddy just typing all of this out.

So in honor of the start to my favorite season, I wanted to share with you my favorite summertime foods.
