July! the season of having people over to your house for dinner. And when I think of having people over in the summer, let’s be honest. I think hot dogs and brats and burgers and Midwestern salads – I repeat SALADS – whose main ingredients are whipped cream, fruit, jello, and or LITERAL CANDY BARS depending on your level of Midwesternism. These are true facts that I’m telling you. Please come visit.
A true fact follow-up: next-level dinners for having people over (or date night? or just solo night?) can be 5-ingredient easy. For example, bowls of bright lime / cool cilantro / green curry creamy coconut deliciousness with those tender, sweet, buttery little scallops and a fresh mango salsa all over top.
Get a load of these gorgeously unfussy ingredients.
Mango, cilantro, red onion, and lime. Are these not the best summer days of our lives?
