After spending a year-plus away from pretty much everyone we love, we’re calling it: This is the summer of boisterous, hilarious, delicious reunions. It’s time to call up family — chosen and given — to gather outside over great food and make new memories with old friends.

But while our loved ones are precious, the planning doesn’t have to be. You can definitely go all out for your reunion, with matching T-shirts and family trivia. But you can also throw a potluck in the park or an impromptu backyard cookout. As long as there are tasty treats and good people, everyone will be happy. And to help, Chicken of the Sea — provider of the freshest, best-tasting seafood the oceans have to offer — is giving away $10,000 in Reunion Grants! July is Family Reunion Month, and Chicken of the Sea is celebrating by offering $500 grants to help people plan the ultimate get-together.

Wondering what to serve? Chicken of the Sea’s fresh and flavorful seafood is the start to so many inspired dishes. This Mediterranean Salmon Couscous Salad tweaks the typical pasta salad with zesty flavors like roasted red pepper and Kalamata olives, with big chunks of mild Chicken of the Sea skinless boneless salmon. Or try Mediterranean spin on tuna salad sandwiches. Packed with Chicken of the Sea tuna, fresh veggies, and zippy Greek yogurt instead of mayo, these are picnic-perfect.

And everyone from your picky friend to your great-grandpa can find something they like on a charcuterie platter. This one is stacked with fresh veggies, crunchy dippers, creamy hummus, rich prosciutto, and all the cheeses. But the secret weapon? Chicken of the Sea Smoked Sardines in Oil for a rich, briny flavor boost.
