Happy Monday, everyone! I’m back from my weekend trip to West Palm Beach, Florida (more on that later!) with a round-up of our favorite summer picnic foods and drinks! Whether you’re hosting a big 4th of July party, or taking something to a friend’s house, these are the perfect recipes for you!
I originally shared this recipe a little less than a year ago, but since no one read our blog then, I thought it was worth mentioning again. This recipe is soooo simple, but looks and tastes fantastic!
All you need are a few home-grown tomatoes and cucumbers (or go ahead and get them at the store) and a blush wine vinaigrette (I used Brianna’s which is to die for, but any blush wine vinaigrette will do). Just add enough vinaigrette to cover the veggies and let marinate a few hours in the fridge. If you’re really feeling crazy, add some cut red onion to the mix, as well. And voila! A refreshing, delicious salad to enjoy as we celebrate our great country!
Monica and I had a blast making and taste-testing our favorite Summertime Drinks, which include Stars & Stripe Sangria, Lime Rickeys and Pineapple Planter’s Punch. They’re all delicious and can be made kid-friendly (except for the sangria!) or spiced up a bit for the adults.
