First up is Blackend Grilled Salmon with Mango Avocado Salsa. This is a tried and true hit with all ages! It’s best if you can plan ahead and make the salsa a few hours before cooking to let the flavors all meld together. We made this over the weekend and it was delicious!

If you’re more of a cold summer salad person, this Broccoli Salad from Trisha Yearwood (yes, the singer) is incredible! Try using dried cranberries instead of raisins – they give the salad a slightly unexpected flavor yet are still sweet.

Looking for beef recipes? We can’t keep these Pineapple Beef Skewers on the table when we make them! The pineapple really helps tenderize the beef and gives it a really wonderful, unexpected flavor!

Of course we can’t forget a local Southern Tier favorite – Chicken Spiedies! If you’re lucky enough to have tried these straight from Lupos, you’ll know why this is a go-to for family picnics!

Last but not least, a fantastically refreshing summer drink! This is the Whole Fruit Margarita. So good on a hot summer day!

What are some of your favorite recipes? We’d love to hear them!
