Our favorite summer salad, dessert and side recipes



Summers tend to fly by, so rather than spending all of your vacation or weekend time locked away in the kitchen, we think that you should be outside by the pool or hiking a mountain with your family. Here are some of our favorite (and easy!) recipes, courtesy of Parenting NH columnist and Around the Table blogger Susan Nye, that are sure to be keepers for your family. Many of them are also perfect for pool parties and summer gatherings, too!
