It’s been hot here in Portland the last week and I don’t know about you but when it’s hot the last thing I feel like doing is cooking!  Totally puts me in the mood for salads or things that require little heat (no oven!)There were so many easy summer dinner ideas shared in this week’s linky party I put together a little collection of them for you. Easy Dinner ideasGreek Chicken Souvlaki with Lemon Rice from Butter with a Side of Bread

Wendy’s Copycat Berry Almond Chicken Salad from Joyful Homemaking

Lime, Black Bean and Quinoa Salad from What’s Cooking with Ruthie

Basil Pesto Panzanella and Tropical Spinach Salad  both from Lemon Tree Dwelling (a double hitter this week!)
