Showing up at a party with a dish that is going to need 20 minutes in the oven is just not right. You would be better off showing up with nothing at all, in the eyes of your host. With our list of 27 Perfect Potluck Dishes for Summer,  you will show up with the perfect dish, and possible become the envy of everyone in attendance.

In Order for a dish to be the “Perfect” potluck dish, it needs to follow a few rules:

  1. It needs to travel well. If it falls apart while sitting on the back seat of your car, it is nowhere near “perfect”.
  2. The dish has to be able to stay at room temperature. Didn’t we just say using the oven is a faux pas? Also, wouldn’t you rather have a fridge full of drinks at the party you are at? I know I would.
  3. It also needs to be easy to make. You don’t have time to be fusing with food when you have a party to get ready for.
