Weekly Menu Plan + Shopping List

Are you team salad for dinner? Most times, our answer would probably be no, but on this week’s IDCO menu, we’re highlighting two recipes that helped us reconsider. We’re talking entree-worthy salads with fully customizable options to pile up with toppings to your heart’s content.

In between all the fresh salad goodness, we’ll be feasting on a brie and basil pizza, Mediterranean grilled shrimp with veggies, and a few indulgent treats to satisfy your sweet tooth. Oh, and for anyone looking to up their cocktail game with week, we’ve got a Strawberry Basil Margarita with your name written ALL over it.

 

WEEKNIGHT MENU FAVORITES

Brie and Roasted Tomato Pizza

 

Pizza for dinner is always a good idea, especially when creamy crème fraîche and melted brie are involved. Leah of Freutcake developed this recipe using gorgeous ripe tomatoes (go grab them from the garden!), flavorful garlic cloves, and fresh basil galore. She recommends picking up Trader Joe’s refrigerated pizza dough to save some time, or make your own if you’re feeling up for the task. Just pair this pizza with your favorite summer wine and enjoy a fun dinner al fresco!

Mediterranean Grilled Shrimp and Vegetables

 

Andie Mitchell dubbed this a quintessential summer meal, and we couldn’t agree more. Everything comes together so quickly on the grill, while the marinated chickpeas “cook” themselves. She recommends serving this dinner with a generous dose of salty feta cheese (always a plus, in our book) and a crisp glass of delicious rosé.

Grilled Romaine Caesar Salad With Herbed White Beans

 

There’s so much produce currently in-season, so we’re going super minimal on the meat and letting the fruits and veggies take the spotlight. Exhibit A: this grilled romaine salad topped with lemon-herb white beans and a creamy Caesar dressing. We’re pretty confident you won’t miss the meat, but if you feel so inclined, just add some grilled chicken in the mix to round out your meal.

BRUNCH

Rainbow Fruit Salad with Maple Lime Dressing

 

We know brunch usually involves eggs, carbs, or combo both, but every now and then, you want a morning bite that mixes things up. *Enter* this rainbow fruit salad recipe from Jessica in the Kitchen. The zippy maple lime dressing is the secret to this dish, and it’s hands-down the easiest cooking you’ll ever have to do.

Strawberry Basil Margarita

 

It wouldn’t be an IDCO menu without something delicious to sip on, so this time around, we’re spotlighting this gorgeous strawberry basil marg from Our Salty Kitchen. It’s got a great sweet yet tart balance, and it’s an overall fun twist on the classic. Sip by the pool, on the patio, in your home office (we don’t judge), and enjoy the ultimate summertime treat.
