Summer Glow Bowls Are Trending, and Here Are 20 Recipes We Love

Corn on the cob and grilled veggies are great on their own, but this year we’re fired up about incorporating them into summer glow bowls. What’s a glow bowl, you ask? Well, first of all, they’re loaded with good-for-you grains and colorful fruits and veggies. Another requirement? Dressing so good, you could eat it with a spoon. Best of all, they’re deceptively healthy, so you can chow down on a bowl of summer squash and juicy tomatoes and eat an ice-cream cone later. Here, 20 of our favorites.
