We Planned Your Summer Pool Party Menu
Lobster rolls may be all the rage in New England, but this reimagining is perfect for your backyard soiree—whereever you are! To make, just whisk together a winning combination of mayo, celery, lemon juice, and hot sauce—don’t forget the Old Bay—slather it generously onto large, juicy shrimp, and load up into your roll of choice. (We recommend hot dog buns for ultimate summer vibes.)

No summer party is complete without chips and guac—at least in our book. The mix of fresh mango, zesty habanero, and citrus creates a sweet heat that will keep your guests coming back for more, making it the perfect snack to have on hand all day.

Shrimp With a Kick
Spice up your menu with zesty shrimp seasoned with ginger, garlic, and red chilies. Add a little pork and soy sauce, wrap it all in spring-roll wrappers, and serve with lip-tingling chili sauce for a crowd-pleasing snack.
A lightened up alternative to potato-based fries, these perfectly seasoned chickpea fries bring the taste of the Mediterranean right to your poolside patio—and the accompanying feta dip is packed with flavor.
Elevated Ice Cream
Swap traditional cookie ends out for airy macarons, and you have a delightfully fruity treat that’s easy to serve and even easier to eat.
