If I learned one thing about growing up with a pool in the backyard, it’s that your house will almost always be the spot for get-togethers with friends and family all summer long. And that is just fine, because pool parties are one of the very best ways to spend those steamy summer afternoons.
Of course, with any good pool party comes a spread of simple yet delicious food that will satisfy everyone from the young to the young at heart. This menu feeds six to eight people comfortably and most everything is prepped the day before, so all that’s left are a few finishing touches before everyone arrives. We’ve even included a timeline on exactly how you can pull this together in advance.
