Summers in Phoenix mean lots of outdoor grilling and poolside snacking. I love to take advantage of the beautiful produce that is in season during these months. Crops picked at their peak of ripeness are more nutrient-dense and also better tasting. Here are three fun summer recipes to enjoy by the pool – all bursting with nutrition, hydration and flavor.
