Q: My summer calendar is already filling up with barbecues and dinner parties. I usually bring wine to these things but due to budget reasons that won't be possible this summer.

What 's a good crowd-pleasing summer recipe that won't break the bank or the novice cook's spirit?

Editor: Erica, I'm a huge fan of simple yet fresh potato salads. Everyone loves them, and they're easy and inexpensive to make. I like making mine with olive oil or yogurt instead of mayonnaise. Here's one recent favorite, with links to several more in that post:

Readers, any tips or recipe recommendations?
