Here's another no-ice-needed smoothie. This one is made with vanilla yogurt, frozen pineapples, strawberries, and peaches, and fresh apples, strawberries, and raspberries.
This 30-minute meal includes chicken, black beans, green peppers, corn, cilantro, and a spicy tomato sauce made from diced tomatoes and green chiles.

This is my FAVORITE potato salad. Red skin potatoes that are tender, but firm, with cooked green beans and deliciously roasted sweet cubanelle peppers, coated in a tangy yogurt and mustard dressing - yummm. You don't need mayonnaise to make a really great potato salad, just some plain fat free yogurt, mustard, vinegar, and tasty seasonings. Give this one a try!
This Greek-Inspired Pasta Salad is a great summer side dish, packed with whole grains, crunchy veggies, tangy feta cheese, and a light dressing. This dish is best served cold, so let it chill in the refrigerator for a few hours to allow the flavors to develop before serving!
This is the perfect dip for summer! It’s warm, cheesy, creamy, sweet, and spicy, and can be dipped with anything from tortilla chips, to soy crisps, to raw veggie sticks. I used low fat cream cheese and low fat sour cream to reduce the overall fat content in this recipe, and no-salt-added corn to cut down on sodium (frozen corn kernels work great in this recipe too). Just pop the ingredients into a slow cooker for two hours, and top with bacon and parsley for garnish!
Balsamic Roasted Asparagus is a super easy side dish that you can enjoy with any meal. Roasting enhances the natural sweetness of the asparagus, and the balsamic vinegar provides a nice tang.
