I’m a big ceviche fan – and the best summer ceviche includes mango. The recipe recommends using Siete tortillas – made with almond flour or coconut flour. You can buy them here. There’s lemon, avocado, cilantro, pepper, onion, mango, and jalapeño – basically everything good and summery.

If it’s on a skewer, it’s cookout-approved. This recipe doesn’t even feel “paleo” because its so good. Grilled shrimp is one of my favorite things to eat in the summer, and this simple recipe uses lemon juice, garlic, mustard, and basil to flavor the meat. I’ll take three skewers pls.

This is a super simple burger – using cilantro, onion, garlic, cumin, and a few spices to create this bliss. Pair it with guacamole, and you are golden. Who needs buns when you have guac anyways?

Until now, I didn’t know what a granita was. But it’s basically a frozen piece of heaven for a cookout. This recipe uses carrot juice, ginger, coconut water, lime, and cucumber to create the perfect frozen dessert. Not too sweet, it’s like a healthy shaved ice.

The original recipe is for a caprese salad, but just remove the dairy, and you’ve got a killer dessert. Grilled peaches are also a yummy option, but this is a nice twist to try at your next cookout.
