By:

Summer is the perfect time of the year to incorporate fruits, seasonal vegetables and no-bake recipes into your weekly menu planner. One favorite fruit that's often kept on hand in most kitchens (especially during the summer) are lemons! There are so many ways you can use lemons, whether your cooking, baking or making up no-bake recipes. Lemon recipes and its uses really are across the board - I think it's one of the most universal fruits to have in your kitchen all the time.

  • Squeezing into fruit salads to keep the other fruit fresh

These are all great ways to use lemons, but if you're looking for more lemon-centric recipes to make the best use out of these colorful wonders than let's explore some lemon recipes:
