Be the Hit of the Potluck!

How awesome is it that 4th of July lands on a weekend this year! Chances are you are heading to or hosting a bbq for the big holiday. Here are 4 great potluck recipes that people will be talking about and begging you for the recipe. (Just click on the photo to get the recipes!)

Crunchy Ramen Salad- My Mom makes this salad once in awhile and it is so good. This is a great way to use up those packets of ramen in your cabinet too. Filled with veggies like coleslaw and edamame, mandarin oranges and a sweet dressing and a nice crunch from the noodles this salad has everything. 

7-Layer Greek Dip- Dips are always a hit at potlucks. Instead of bringing a heavy dip filled with sour cream this Greek dip is a great fresh and light alternative. You can still get that creamy taste but this dip used hummus and greek yogurt. Layered with cucumber red onion, slice kalamata olive, tomato and topped with crumbled feta. This is great served with pita chips.

Watermelon Feta Mint Salad- Now that the heat is here the key to a good potluck dish it cold and refreshing. And what it more refreshing than watermelon? The idea of combining watermelon and cheese seems strange until you try it and wonder why you never mixed those 2 before. Cucumber, mint, watermelon and feta make a fantastic combination. This salad will disappear from the picnic table. 

Apple Nachos- Of course something sweet is sure to be popular. Caramel apples are so yummy but difficult to eat without ending up with a face full of caramel. This is a great way to serve caramel apples without the mess. You can get creative with the toppings. 

Remember to follow all food safety tips when it comes to food outside.
