The theme of the month was “grilling,” but it could have alternatively been called “potato salads”–we had three! We watched Ramon grill.

Lilly provided the following ingredients and description for what she brought:

Hummus: Garbanzo beans, olive oil, garlic (or garlic powder), salt, and a couple of squeezes of a lemon (optional). Simple. Blend in food processor.
Pita chips: Pita bread cut into squares, baked in oven for 10-15 min.
(not homemade but re-imagined & I used the oven  ;))
Lilly's grilled potato saladI based it off this this recipe shared with me by Kristen (thanks Kristen!), but I used stone ground mustard. Jesse and I decided to pre-grill it on the my electric grill prior to the event, so it was ready for eatin’.
