    Drink this in place of plain old water--it's so simple, delicious, healthy and refreshing! I've added fresh lemon verbena along with the cucumber and lemon, as it's so plentiful in my garden right now. But any of the sweet herbs such as lemon balm, mint, or scented geranium leaves (try rose!) would also be wonderful. Or try rosemary, basil, lemon thyme or whatever herb or combination you fancy! I keep a jug of this refreshing beverage in the fridge all summer long. Each batch lasts a day or two--just keep in the fridge, and top off with more bottled water to replenish what you drink. After a couple of days you'll need to make a fresh batch. Enjoy! Recipe is easily doubled or tripled, for events etc.

    Ginger switchel or Haymaker's Punch is a traditional nonalcoholic vinegar-based drink whose sourness was offset by a hefty dose of ginger and spices; it was named for the eighteenth-century farmers who drank it — literal haymakers. This ginger punch is flavored with lemon juice and sweetened with honey and molasses for a refreshing drink that quenches even the fiercest summer thirst. Includes chilling time. From Eating Well, July/August 2008.

    This is a delightful specialty sandwich originating in Nice, in the South of France. The Pan bagnat is a popular lunch time sandwich and also a great make ahead dish to pack in the picnic hamper along with fresh fruits, some cheese and a bottle of wine or sparkling lemonade. I hope you enjoy!

    Recipe #458914

    A big pitcher of this effervescent strawberry-lemonade is the perfect drink for summer barbecues and outdoor gatherings! From The Sweet Melissa Baking Book by Melissa Murphy.

    This dessert-salad is a blast from the past! It's basically a rice pudding with crushed pineapple, whipped cream, and maraschino cherries. Serve glorified rice as a salad to accompany your holiday meal. It's also a great dish to bring to potlucks or church picnics. Enjoy! Adapted from "Mennonite Girls Can Cook".

    Recipe #453983

    These deviled eggs are very sophisticated, with zingy flavors that go well with contemporary food. One of the most addictive deviled eggs you'll ever taste! The secret ingredient is honey. Great for picnics, and also with drinks before a meal or for cocktail hour. Adapted from The San Francisco Examiner. Bay Area culinary expert Niloufer Ichaporta King, "one of the best cooks on the planet" found it in a book published in Bombay in the 1940s, under the mysterious heading "Italian Eggs". Not a classic Parsi recipe. Tips: It is important to let the eggs season a bit for the best flavor. Two hours will do it, but overnight is better. You can play with the seasonings, using more butter, lime, and/or jalapeno, as you like. Cook time is chill time.

    This is my version of both my mother's and German grandmother's potato salad. A family favorite that is a requirement at all gatherings! I hope you enjoy.

    These are the BEST! I've been making this recipe for over 20 years now, and it's always a HIT with my family and friends! Great for BBQ's, potlucks, camping etc. Can be made in the oven or in the crockpot, and it freezes and reheats well.

    Recipe #378215

    My favorite pasta salad that I serve all summer long! Lovely with grilled chicken, a crusty bread or rolls and a glass of chilled white wine. I hope you enjoy! Note: Do try to use real French cornichons, if you can get them, as they really make this dish extra special.

    This is my favorite summer or spring-time salad. It is a beautiful, colorful, not too sweet tangy salad. A staple in my family for three generations.

    Recipe #114327

    An easy coffee cake recipe with a nice topping of brown sugar, mini-marshmallows and walnuts. Recipe was passed down to me from my mother...this cake has been "toted" to many lunches, picnics, and family gatherings...thus the name. I hope you enjoy!

    These are some great tasting, finger-lickin' ribs! Boil 'em and then grill 'em (or you may finish them in the oven, if you prefer), then serve 'em with extra Q sauce for dipping. Simple and easy recipe, with NO heating up of the kitchen from a hot oven, which is an added bonus especially in the hot summertime. Recipe is from my Southern born and raised sis-in-law, Patricia Ellen. Thought I'd share with y'all, I hope you enjoy. Serve with some corn bread or buttered rolls, beans and slaw.

    A healthful snack, light meal, or appetizer--perfect packed in the picnic basket or cooler to take along on picnics or outings in the countryside. Serve in lettuce cups, spread onto whole wheat crackers, stuff into whole wheat pita bread pockets, or eat as is. My DH really enjoys this salad, and prefers to "kick it up a notch" with extra cayenne. The recipe as written is meant to have only a subtle "kick", but you may increase or decrease the amount of cayenne to suit. Note: I like to make this dip several hours in advance, to allow the flavors to mingle. Enjoy!

    My favorite egg salad. Lovely served on hot buttered toast with lettuce leaves, or as an appie on wheat crackers. Prep time does not include chill time. From "The Green House" fine herbs grower in Encinitas, CA.

    Even with all the great Tuna Salads on Recipezaar, I did not see this one. My husband raves about it, and I do too. We eat this on toasted bread and lettuce, as well as on crackers; it would also make a great filling for pita bread or wraps. Hope you like it.

    An incredibly fantastic chicken salad, perfect for summertime entertaining! Also great tossed with cooked bow-tie pasta, which makes a more substantial meal. This is so delicious, one of my all-time favorite chicken salads!! Slightly adapted from a Paula Deen recipe.

    Recipe #376680

    This is a delicious summertime salad that goes together quick and easy! Perfect for lunch, or as a dinner side salad. Lovely served warm or chilled, with a glass of Chardonnay and a warm buttered roll. Enjoy!

    Recipe #258186

    The perfect pasta salad for picnics, potlucks and gatherings. I've made this without the mayo, using the artichoke marinade in it's place, and it was equally fabulous and well received! Best served well chilled.

    This tart is wonderful picnic, potluck or party food--it's great served warm, cold or at room temperature! Simple and very tasty, I often make this tart when fresh zucchini are in season. For ease of preparation, I've used a crescent roll crust, but you may use a regular shortcrust pastry if you wish. You will need a 9 or 10-inch tart tin with a removable bottom. P.S. If you don't have a tart or quiche pan, just use a 9 x 13-inch baking dish.

    Recipe #378799

    This lovely chicken salad is bursting with yummy flavor! A tasty snack eaten with wheat crackers, or fill a pita pocket for a delicious lunch or light dinner. -Or-, serve a scoop atop a bed of fresh crisp lettuces, for a ladies luncheon or tea! Great!
