50 Quintessential Summer Foods
There are some foods that just scream "Summer!" Many of us are fortunate to live where most foods are available year-round, but despite this, some foods are synonymous with summer. The fruits and vegetables are local; fresh picked and vine ripened. Food seems to taste better outdoors, and it's not a picnic without cold fried chicken and potato salad. Nothing says summer like a lunch of fish you caught that morning, fried on the lakeshore, a hotdog roasted over a campfire, or a juicy hamburger or steak grilled in the back yard. There are those summer moments; stopping at a roadside chip truck for poutine on the way out to the lake or for a popsicle on the way home, sitting on the front steps with a handful of radishes and a salt shaker, picking blackberries, or wiping the butter from your chin while eating that first cob of corn of the season. The drinks are icy cold, and the fruit sweet and juicy.
This is a list of 50 foods that make summer great.
