Summer meals? New recipes that are light, fresh and perfect for warmer weather @SanJTamari #sponsored

Spring is here and I am always looking for some lighter recipes to keep things fun for lunch and ways to prep ahead for a fast dinner. My family loves to try new recipes but it can be a challenge when you have 2 hungry girls and one hungry vegetarian husband. San-J really makes it easy for any home cook because they have options that add fast flavor for whatever kinds of recipes you like. San-J has a line of premium, gluten-free, Non-GMO Asian Cooking Sauces that make it fun to create new recipes all year long. The healthy and delicious sauces from San-J add just the right flavor and they are gluten-free too. 

These  gluten-free, Non-GMO Asian Cooking Sauces really let you turn up the heat and keep things interesting without a lot of work. Who wants to spend hours in the kitchen during the summer? San-J just launched some yummy new recipes courtesy of Amie Valpone that help brings salads and wraps up a notch with taste and flavor. One of the newest recipes features turmeric for an extra healthy kick. Keep it cool on a hot day with Orange Turmeric Wild Rice Salad bursting with citrus flavor. I tried these delicious Mini Black Rice Bites that you can easily bake in a muffin tin yesterday and they were a huge hit. Think about it, everyone will be envious of your lunch! Or why not create some of your own recipes using these Non-GMO sauces?
