Recipes to Chase Away the Chill

Chili and Stew recipes that will warm you on the inside.

Picnics are a perfect way to enjoy getting together with friends and family this summer. No matter what your destination − the beach, park or just your backyard − there’s no need to settle for standard fare.

Instead, make summertime favorites like pasta salad, potato salad, vegetable dip and California style wraps even more delicious by adding the new Hellmann’s® or Best Foods® mayonnaise dressing with Olive Oil recipe. Made with high-quality ingredients, including olive oil, cage-free eggs and vinegar, it combines the creamy, rich taste of Hellmann’s® or Best Foods® with the delicious goodness of olive oil.

To make sure your picnic is a success, here are some picnic food safety tips.

  • Make sure you properly store and serve your picnic treats so they stay fresh and delicious.
  • Cold perishable food should be kept in a cooler at 40°F or below until it’s time to serve.
  • Foods like cold salads or desserts in individual serving dishes can be placed directly on ice. Drain off water as ice melts, and replace ice frequently.
  • Hot food should be kept hot, at or above 140°F.
  • Wrap hot foods well, and place in an insulated container until serving.
  • Once served, no food should sit out for longer than two hours, one hour if the outdoor temperature is above 90°F. To be safe, throw away any food that has been left out longer.
