Summer is about enjoying the outdoors and relaxing over good food with good company, not slaving away in the kitchen. It's the time for crisp salads, fruit bursting with flavor, and fresh, young vegetables. Easy Summer Food takes the best of these ingredients and creates simple recipes to inspire you to make the most of what this fabulous season has to offer. There are Appetizers, Salads, Picnic ideas, and Dips and Breads for light summer fare, as well as Barbecue treats, Vegetables, and Sweet Things & Drinks. For a more filling meal, try something from the Pasta, Pizza, & Rice or Fish, Meat, & Poultry chapters. Pack some Toasted Ciabatta Pizzas in your picnic basket, grill some Jerk Chicken Wings with Avocado Salsa on the barbecue or kick off your shoes and relax with an Iced Long Vodka. Bring some sunshine to your plate with these delicious recipes for every occasion.
