It's summer! Time to kick back and enjoy the outdoors, especially with picnic get-togethers and potlucks! But hold off on the tubs of pre-made pasta salad. Snowville's got some showstoppers for your next barbeque gathering!

Appetizer: Red, White, and Blue Nachos

Getting together for the fourth of July? This one is perfect finger food! Make your own queso blanco! This recipe includes red bell pepper and you can garnish with a few extra peppers or tomatoes. Serve with blue corn tortilla chips. And of course, don't forget the Snowville White Cheddar and Snowville No Lac Pepper Jack Cheese! Check out the ingredients and instructions for your own queso blanco dip!

Appetizer, Side, or Main: Creamy Pesto Chicken Salad

This recipe can do it all, depending on how you want to serve it! Serve just the chicken salad with crackers or make mini sandwiches for an appetizer or a side. Add it to pasta or rice to turn it into a creamy, yummy main. The possibilities are endless! It’s a great way to use leftover chicken breast from the grill, too!

Main: Chicken Bacon Ranch Flatbreads

Sure to be a people pleaser, these can be served on smaller flatbreads or cut up as finger food or as a main that you can make with chicken right off the grill! These flatbreads feature chicken and melty Snowville Creamery cheddar cheese. And of course, the bacon! Grill it, bake it, or fry it up in advance or, if you want something easy, buy the real bacon bit crumbles. Last but not least, this amazing and insanely easy ranch made with Snowville Creamery’s crème fraiche.

Side: Crème Fraîche Slaw

Creamy and Tangy, this is a summer classic with a little Snowville twist! It’s super easy to make in advance and features a touch of maple to balance out the acidity. Top it with sesame seeds or sunflower seeds if you want a little extra crunch.

Dessert: Yogurt Custard Toast

This delicious dessert has some flexibility, but can be easily made in advance in your oven or brought out to the table warm. With the berries or fruit on top, it has a touch of summer. This would be great for a garden brunch or any desert. Experiment with the custard mix to make a bake, even! And best of all, it’s crazy simple to make!
