Dream Vacation Sweepstakes

10 weeks. 10 amazing trips. Seize your chance to win! Official rules.

It happened fast this year: A few weekends ago it was so chilly I actually built a fire (even though I had already cleaned out the fireplace), then before I knew it I was headed to the beach to cool down. Now summer is here, and we're all looking for ways to cook less and still eat well. To help, I've updated three classic spreads that double as practical sandwich fillers by day, and classy hors d'oeuvres come evening.
