Fried chicken served hot from the cast iron skillet is heaven. But in warmer months, it’s equally as enticing cold. So, save some from pieces from your next batch and toss with Dijon, chives, shallot, and all the makings of our best-ever chicken salad. A squishy brioche bun and ripe heirloom tomatoes is guaranteed to cement this in your sandwich pantheon.
Here’s proof that the easiest desserts (essentially, sugar and water) can be summer’s most refreshing treat. Just steep sweet tea with lemon juice and orange zest, freeze, scrape, and top with a shot of bourbon or Gran Marnier.
