Recipes by Robyn Webb, MS, LN; photography by Kyle Dreier, food styling by Whitney Kemp

Relaxed dining outdoors makes conversations sparkle and cares drift away. Food Editor Robyn Webb, MS, LN, shares menus for three delightful summer get-togethers. Linger over the flavor of fresh ingredients—they taste even better in the open air.

Patio Party

Tomato and Peach Salad

Al Fresco Provençal Chicken

Roasted Asparagus With Prosciutto

Strawberries With Balsamic Glaze, Black Pepper, and Tarragon

Picnic Outing

Cilantro Shrimp Kebabs

Roasted Potato Salad

Cool Cucumber and Carrot Salad

Picnic Peanut Butter Cookies

Traveling Feast
Pack the shrimp, potato salad, and cucumber-carrot salad separately in tightly sealed portable containers. For fit, you may want to remove the shrimp from the skewers. Place the containers in a cooler with frozen gel packs. Keep the cooler lid closed as much as possible during the picnic. Do not let the cooler sit for more than two hours outside; if it’s over 90 degrees, for no more than one hour.

Family Gathering

Maple-Glazed Pork Loin

Mushroom Orzo

Spinach Salad With Sherry-Orange-Currant Dressing

Tropical Ambrosia
