No Mayo Potato Salad

Potato Salad is a favorite summertime side… but oftentimes, it’s weighed down by too much mayonnaise. This No Mayo Potato Salad is a lighter rendition of the classic, and is just as scrumptious. Red potatoes serve as the base, and they, along with hardboiled eggs, celery and green onions, are tossed in a light, flavorful dill vinaigrette. Serve at any picnic or cookout this summer and expect compliments on this surprisingly creamy potato salad.

Mustard Chicken

Mustard Chicken is an entree the whole family will love, and it can be on the table in less than 45 minutes. Chicken breasts are seasoned and seared, then a creamy mustard sauce is created using the pan drippings, chicken stock, milk, Dijon mustard and dried herbs. Pop the chicken back into the sauce and simmer until ready. Serve the chicken over rice and smother with the decadent mustard sauce. Enjoy with bread so you can sop up more sauce!

Parmigiano Reggiano Zucchini

Parmigiano Reggiano Zucchini is a brilliant way to serve fresh zucchini in the summertime, so long as you don't mind turning on the oven. Zucchini is sliced, tossed in olive oil and seasoned with black pepper. It bakes for 10 minutes, then it is coated with a layer of Parmigiano Reggiano cheese and broiled until the cheese browns and crisps up. With its melt-in-your-mouth richness, Parmigiano Reggiano Zucchini is an all-time favorite side dish.

Grilled Peach Bruschetta

Grilled Peach Bruschetta is a perfect sweet appetizer or dessert for the summertime. Fire up the grill, slice and pit a few fresh peaches, brush the peaches with a little bit of olive oil, then grill until the sugars in the fruit caramelizes. Grill the bread, too. When both are done, smear the bread with fresh ricotta cheese, place the peach slices on top of the cheese, then drizzle with a balsamic vinegar reduction for the final touch. Perfect!
