Feast on This” features the best seasonal recipes you should cook every month.

The month of July can be a scorcher, so if you can’t stand the heat, then definitely stay out of the kitchen!

July is bursting at the seams with fresh produce, including tender lettuces, ruby red watermelon, raspberries, blueberries, blackberries, corn, stone fruit, and cucumbers. So, turn off the oven and pare down your prep time.

These nine no-fuss, refreshing July recipes include plenty of fruits and vegetables and are ideal nourishment after a jump in the pool (remember to wait an hour after eating to jump back in) or frolic in the ocean, or for bringing to a backyard party or park picnic with pals. Fire up the grill this Fourth of July for a feast of ribs or kebabs (or both!), and watch as each of these recipes set off fireworks of flavor!
