Summer is the time for picnics, barbecues, and gatherings around the picnic table. These recipes from our Out Here readers, offer a variety of dishes that you can serve either at your next get-together or take to someone else’s.


Blue Burger Barbecue

 

"Out here on the ranch, when the grandkids come to visit, they want something different and special," writes NancyLee Murrell of Chappell Hill, TX. "It was the same as when I was a kid going to my grandma’s. I always knew there would be something special just for us, and this is what it was. The grands love it and so does their Poppy."

Oven-Fried Zucchini Sticks

 

Diana Wasser, of Kintnersville, PA, loves zucchini and was hunting for a recipe that mimicked a dish she loved that a local restaurant had discontinued. Not only does this recipe provide a way to use abundant zucchini from her garden, but her children also love it, she says. "They dip them in ranch dressing and think it’s another form of a chicken nugget."

Pasta and Vegetable Salad

 

This cold salad from B. Joey Laster, of Henderson, TN, is one of those dishes that becomes tastier the longer it marinates. "This keeps well in the refrigerator for several days," he writes.
