You clearly all agree because your most-saved summer dinner recipes are as fuss-free as they come. Here are your 10 favorites.

10. How To Make Juicy Turkey Burgers

All too often turkey burgers can be dry and uninspiring. This recipe changes all that by adding Greek yogurt to the mix for moisture. Add a dash of Worcestershire and soy sauce for a boost of flavor.

8. How To Make Juicy, Flavorful Grilled Chicken Breast

A quick mixture of honey, vinegar, and spices acts as sort of a hybrid marinade-brine to add flavor and moisture to the chicken before grilling. The leftover mixture is then used as a glaze to finish it.

7. Caramelized Eggplant & Onion Orzo

While this dinner requires a bit of time over the stove, it's minimal enough that you won't sweat too much in the summer heat. Plus, you'll be rewarded with a comforting meal that's extra colorful and packed with veggies.

5. Tortellini with Butter-Roasted Cherry Tomato Sauce

This is the perfect simple dinner for families with picky eaters. Make the butter-roasted cherry tomatoes to jazz up the adults' bowls and toss the kids' portions simply with butter and cheese.

4. Cilantro Lime Pork Chops

These citrusy, tangy pork chops are a nice change from the ones you've been cooking through the colder months. Serve them on their own or with steamed rice to catch all the sauce.

3. Sausage & Potato Foil Packets

Instead of reaching for a handful of spices, grab Cajun seasoning to add zest to these grilled packets without adding extra ingredients.

2. Light & Fresh Italian Pasta Salad

Can pasta salad be dinner? Absolutely — especially when it's filled with juicy tomatoes, bite-sized fresh mozzarella balls, and peppery arugula.
