Coastal Summer Meal

Summer certainly is delicious. And if you’re planning a get together and need a seasonally-sensational menu look no further than this tasty summer meal courtesy of Furniture Row visual merchandiser Greg Utsinger. Greg has contributed style-savvy content to the Front Door, and we are so excited to share these tasty recipes & photography from his personal lifestyle blog, gregutsinger.com.

Greg has great taste all around–in furniture, decor, AND food! We love the recipes on his blog, and selected these three in the spirit of summer. We are delighted to pass along this coastal-inspired summer pairing. Opening with a fresh and colorful potato salad, following with a shrimp roll (summer day at the beach, anyone?), and finishing with a refreshing lemon Atlantic Beach Pie, this party of three is sure to get any summer celebration going! Thanks, Greg.
