Whether you attend a potluck dinner, picnic, or backyard barbecue, there is a good chance that you will find potato salad on the buffet. Instead of a standard potato salad recipe, try this zesty version featuring red skin potatoes marinated in a tart dill pickle brine and mixed with crunchy pickles, celery, and parsley in a savory mayonnaise dressing.

Corn on the cob is a perennial favorite for backyard barbecues, and this tasty dish pays tribute to it. Imagine plump, smoky kernels of grilled corn, cut fresh from the cob, mixed with a flavorful blend of diced veggies and savory spices!

When the sun is scorching and everyone at your next gathering is parched, you will be glad you have this refreshing cocktail recipe! It is my “grown-up” version of lemon-limeade, flavored with honey, fresh mint, and a generous splash of vodka. Make a separate pitcher for the kids without the booze.
