In a couple weeks we are heading to Vermont for a family get-together, and I can’t wait to go blueberry picking! Usually it’s so hot that I can’t manage to bake a pie, so instead I love throwing the fresh berries in salads. Click on over to my Better Homes and Gardens post for the full recipe and more photos. Cheers to outdoor summer meals!

Independence Day is tomorrow and we are going to a BBQ pool party! We’ve been asked to bring a dish to share, and since the white peaches at the farmers market right now are soooo sweet, I was thinking of making this savory Peach Salad. It’s a bit unique, easy to make ahead, and great at room temperature.

Above is a little round-up of some of my favorite past recipes that I think would be fun to have at an outdoor summer gathering, like Radishes with Butter, Watermelon Bruschetta, and a refreshing Berry Fizz. Happy 4th!
