I find these Tuna Salad Wraps to be so refreshing on a hot summer day!
Tuna is a food I consider to be a life saver when I don’t feel like cooking, when I don’t have much time to throw a meal together, and when I’ve failed to thaw meat for dinner.
We eat tuna salad with crackers, in a sandwich, on a bed of lettuce, or in these Tuna Salad Wraps. We set out raw veggies and fresh fruit to eat alongside our tuna. So our meals is nourishing and full of variety!
I love asking my kids to mix up several cans of tuna because it’s something they can make easily. Then we keep it in the fridge to use for upcoming fast meals that don’t heat up the kitchen!
The recipe below is a typical ratio we use to make one can of tuna. Double, or triple, or octuple as necessary for your family!

Sometimes the simplest suppers can include a few fresh veggies, some fresh fruit, a bag of favorite tortilla chips, and a variety of dips. Yep, for today’s Simple Summer Supper we’re takin’ a dip! Wanna come?
Dips have an unhealthy reputation, but I disagree with this trend. I believe dips can be very nourishing! Also, if they help get the fruits and veggies down, even better!
Takin’ a Dip: 16 of our family’s favorite summertime dips.
Pair a fruit dip with a veggie dip, throw in a fun chip dip, and you’ve got a great summertime meal!
These Grilled Tortilla Pizzas are so simple and fast, you’ll hardly know what to do with yourself!
I suggest letting each person build their own Tortilla Pizzas to their liking. Put them on the grill until the cheese is melted, which takes just a couple minutes.
Just like that, your meal is ready! Grab the greens and other salad fixin’s out of the fridge (or out of the garden – even better!). Slice some fresh peaches or strawberries. Truly, your Simple Summer Supper doesn’t get any easier than this!
Top a tortilla with all your favorite pizza toppings.
Grill on low heat for about 2 minutes or until cheese has melted.
Serve with fresh fruits and veggies.
You can use flour or corn tortillas (corn if you need to eat gluten free). You can add sauce or no sauce. Perhaps my only caution is that you don’t over-cheese your Grilled Pizza Tortillas; otherwise your cheese might overflow onto the grill grates and create a mess!

This Simple Taco Salad ranks right up there as one of the most refreshing and tasty meals to serve in the summertime!
I can’t get enough of this salad. And interestingly enough, while my kids typically just serve themselves a small amount of greens for a salad on a normal day, they eat huge bowls of this Simple Taco Salad! Maybe we should always put chips in our salad – ha!
1 head lettuce, any variety (we prefer red leaf, green leaf or romaine)
1 cup shredded cheddar or Colby jack cheese
15 ounces (or 2 cups) of pinto, chili, or black beans
1 cup diced fresh tomatoes
1-2 cups crushed tortilla chips
1 cup French Dressing (give or take; recipe link below)
Brown hamburger meat and season with taco seasoning mix (recipe link below)
Chop or tear lettuce into a large serving bowl.
Add cooked meat (cooled), shredded cheese, beans, tomatoes, and chips.
Toss with French Dressing.
Make a batch of this French Dressing to serve in this salad. You won’t be sorry!
I recommend making this Taco Seasoning Mix to have on hand for recipes like this. Easy and delicious! Also, I find it helpful to make several pounds of taco meat at once, then I use the leftovers to make this salad!
Have you seen our other Simple Summer Suppers? Here’s a running list:
Have leftover Sloppy Joe Meat? Use it to quickly make Sloppy Grilled Cheese Sandwiches!
How’s that for a twist on Sloppy Joes and Grilled Cheese Sandwiches? Sure it’s a tiny bit messy. That’s the point. The flavor is super fun and delicious with the butter, the cheese, and the meat.
These can be thrown together quickly and served with simple sides like fresh fruit and raw veggies. You can have your entire meal on the table in ten minutes!
I’m quite sure most of you know how to make a Grilled Cheese Sandwich. I’m also quite sure that it’s obvious that to make a Sloppy Grilled Cheese Sandwich you simply add sloppy joe meat to your grilled cheese. Thus, writing specific directions below to describe exactly how to make a Sloppy Grilled Cheese Sandwich was an interesting adventure. How did I do? Please be impressed.
There are more prizes where that came from. But more importantly, the Homemaking Ministries Conference covers much needed topics like:
Your Identity in Christ
and many, many other kitchen, home, and Christ-focused topics.
As for my topic, I get to share from my 21 years of experience teaching my kids to cook. It’s been a blast working on this, especially once I realized how much my kids’ ability to cook is such a blessed part of our family’s ministries. Who knew? More on that during the conference!
When you sign up before July 9 to get info about the conference, you’ll not only be registered for the giveaway, you’ll also be given a chance to get a huge early bird discount. We’re talking a $20 savings! Plus this, which takes your savings up to $25:
Sloppy Joes are one of our favorite Simple Summer Suppers.
I love them because I can make a big batch and freeze to use as needed. This recipe becomes a no-brainer, so you can simply brown meat, add a few key ingredients, and supper is served!
(For the record, our family calls the evening meal “dinner” but somehow in the summer it feels lighter and cooler to call it supper. It’s kind of like how it feels more special to call Sunday’s lunch “dinner” even though we eat at noon. But I digress.)
Sloppy Joes are easy to make and keep warm in the crock pot to serve to a large crowd. They can be eaten in the yard for a summer picnic. They taste great with simple sides like raw veggies, cold watermelon or cantaloupe, cole slaw, or baked beans.
Make Sloppy Joes with any ground meat you have: beef, turkey, chicken, venison, or lamb. Eat them on buns or with tortilla chips. Or skip the carbs and eat the meat in a bed of lettuce!
I promise not all of the Simple Summer Suppers we’re going to share have bacon in them. (At least I think I promise this. Yes. I do. I promise.) But it only made sense that this Broccoli Bacon Salad recipe follow the BLT Wraps recipe. Because obviously you made extra bacon when you made the BLT Wraps, right?
When one makes bacon, one should always make extra. This is not so all the people can over-eat the bacon. This is so the mother can get ahead in the kitchen. And who am I kidding? Here’s the real reason I make lots of bacon at one time:
I don’t want my hair to smell like bacon any more than is necessary.
When I make bacon my hair, clothes, and house absorb the delicious smell of bacon. But I don’t want to wear bacon hair for three days, nor do I want my house to constantly smell as if I’m burning a bacon-scented candle. (I am amused and slightly horrified that these actually exist.)
Now that we have the bacon cooking situation under control, we can make all kinds of delicious meals in a hurry! This Broccoli Bacon Salad is packed with flavor! Of course it’s easy to make, because easy recipes are the only kind I like to make and share.
In a large bowl, combine broccoli, onion, bacon, and cheese.
Stir in mayonnaise and vinegar.
Serve right away or make ahead and chill until serving time.
Truly, this Broccoli Bacon Salad is a meal in and of itself. It can be packed in a lunch or eaten on the road. It can be made ahead of time and pulled out of the fridge for an instant meal. It makes a perfect Simple Summer Supper on a hot day!
