Don't you get tired of trying the same old summer recipes? We all have our go-to picks: grilled corn, smoked chicken breast, grilled brats, store-bought ice cream sandwiches and on and on. But this year, it turns out we're all looking to break out of our summer recipe rut.
For starters, according to Pinterest's summer entertaining trends report for 2018, white wine slushies are all the rage this year, with searches for white wine recipes increasing more than 3,027 percent since last year.
Also on the rise are big batch cocktails (up 60 percent year over year), pepper cocktails (yes, pepper cocktails), grill bombs, picnic pies and waffle ice cream sandwiches. Clearly, we're all more interested in sweets and cocktails — and, well, we get it.
As far as food goes, some of the most popular recipes include plenty of sweet corn, plenty of fresh fruit, plenty of skewers and so much chicken. Just wait until you see these mouthwatering dishes. You'll find yourself heating up the grill in no time.
Without further ado, here are the 15 most popular easy summer recipes on Pinterest, including everything from appetizers and cocktails to creamy desserts.
