Hosting a summer get-together can mean spending hours in the kitchen when you'd really rather be outside.
Fortunately, there's a simple solution. Instead of making a menu, turn your backyard barbecue into an outdoor potluck and assign each of your guests a different dish to share with the crowd. Salads are always a great option (because they can be doled out individually), as are appetizer-sized dishes like kebobs and pinwheels. Get enough of those together, and you have yourself a meal!
Check out the slideshow below for 38 irresistible potluck recipes that are sure to be polished off at any summer party.
