Browsing for some 4th of July dinner inspiration? Midweek Meals is a biweekly blog series in which we highlight delicious dinners that come together in just 30 minutes (less if you’re a speedy chopper, slightly more if you get distracted mid-way!).
Let’s keep 4th of July easy this year! In this week’s Midweek Meals, we have some delicious recipes from a few of our favorite blogs, including balsamic chicken thighs, the best vegan burgers for the barbeque, and quick garlicky shrimp that take just 20 minutes. Over on Drop Recipes, you’ll find a chili-beef burger that packs a serious punch, a light and zesty halloumi salad, and homemade pork ribs that are finger-lickin’ good.
Grilled Halloumi with Citrusy Summer Salad
Firm and salty, halloumi grills beautifully without melting and is a perfect BBQ treat. The juicy oranges and minty dressing cut through its richness here. Paired perfectly with the light, fresh flavors in this salad available on Drop Recipes it makes the perfect side dish or vegetarian option in less than 10 minutes!
Homemade burgers beat store-bought every time, and this spiced up version available on Drop Recipes is one of the best. These burgers are packed with heat, so choose cooling toppings such as sour cream and avocado to serve. For a medium-rare burger, grill on each side for 3-4 minutes.
