Whether you have a pool or "pool-envy," this time of year most of us are looking for a way to cool off. Whether you're the host or the guest, turn your next pool-side gathering into an outright pool party with the help of this menu of summer hors d'oeuvres. Serve them altogether at an island-inspired theme party or individually at an impromptu get together.
Curried Chutney Dip is based on a recipe from the Junior League of Augusta's Tea-Time at the Masters Second Round. The creamy dip and crisp Watermelon, Tomato and Cucumber salsa are delicious served with homemade Sesame Crisps, but also can be served with store-bought tortilla chips.
Throw some Jerk Shrimp on the grill and serve the shrimp as a pickup appetizer or top the Calypso Chopped Salad with Pineapple-Citrus Dressing with the shrimp as an entrée salad.
Serve with plenty of Jamaican beer, pink lemonade or frozen mango margaritas for an afternoon or evening of pool-side fun.
