25 Summer Picnic and Cook Out Recipes

I don't know about you all, but I can't help but to gush about summer time. Now, living in the south, summer honestly isn't one of my favorite seasons due to all the super hot humid heat. But, I love all the fresh summer produce and foods so I make an exception for the weather when it comes to picnics and cook outs. Did you know that it's even Picnic Month?

Even though it may be hotter than hades outside, all the fresh summer food at picnics and cook outs are just way too good to pass up. BBQ chicken, burgers, grilled squash, potato salad, banana pudding, ice cream, grilled chicken sandwiches and even chilled avocado and corn soup with name the time and place and I'll be there for my favorite summer eats. Just today, I got done making some creamy cucumber salad for Mr. Savvy and some buttermilk coleslaw, which is one of my favorite toppings for both hot dogs and burgers since I grew up in the Carolinas.
