This article was originally published in 2014. When we saw you wanted summer potluck ideas, we spruced it up and returned it to the homepage.
It’s almost the weekend and you're excited to get to that picnic, barbecue, or cookout your friends invited you to. But as you look back at the invitation (or scroll to the bottom of the email) for the get-together, you realize that it says “potluck.”

But never fear. Food52 is here to save you with some effortless recipes fit for a crowd. Wow your friends with rich chocolate cake or spicy salsa. They never have to know that you pulled it together just moments before arriving.
