I love to make fresh meals for my family. The fresher and better the quality the more amazing my meals come out! Right now #FreshFromFlorida has some amazing produce that is perfect for all that summer entertaining.

Florida corn is so perfectly sweet right now. So are the watermelons! The blueberries are in season and have just the right amount of sweetness to them. Not sure what to do with those beautiful tomatoes or fresh seafood. Head to Fresh From Florida’s website for some amazing recipes.

I made a few of the awesome recipes I found on the Fresh From Florida website. We had Sweet Corn & Black Bean Enchiladas, Midsummer Melon Salsa, and a Passion Fruit & Orange Margarita’s. It was such a great combination of flavors and it was a pretty healthy meal. We also loved that it was light on the stomach in the Florida heat. You can find the recipe for the Sweet Corn & Black Bean Enchiladas below and the other two on Fresh From Florida’s website.

The meal actually was so great I have made it twice since. I also intend to invite some friends over and have this yummy meatless dinner after a long day at the beach. It was so easy to make I think it will be my go to fast food dinner! I love an easy healthy meal especially in the summer! A day in the sun almost requires fast dinner!
