One of the best parts about being a foodie is getting to experience all of the unique foods each season brings. Winter provides lots of warm, hearty chilis and baked potatoes. Fall, plenty of apples, pumpkin pie and cinnamon-spiced baked goods. Spring, a plethora of delicious, light salads and Easter treats. And summer, perhaps some of the most memorable and delicious foods of all: ice cream, fresh fruit, rhubarb pie, hamburgers and grilled corn – the list is seemingly endless.
Being that today is the official first day of summer, we found it appropriate to think on those summertime foods we can’t get enough of once the heat starts to swell. And so, we called on some of our favorite foodies – bloggers, health writers and cookbook authors alike – to tell us what their one summer food item was that they simply couldn’t go without having before cool weather hits. And the result? A diverse collection of some of the tastest summertime treats we’ve ever seen.
