How to Prepare and Set the Spread

Make the chicken salad, egg salad, pimento cheese dip, and spinach dip. Keep refrigerated until ready to set and serve the spread.

Bake the biscuits, chocolate sheet cake and the fresh peach crumble.

Prepare the BLT chopped salad, but wait to add the ranch dressing until ready to set and serve the spread. Keep refrigerated if making in advance.

Make the trail mix and mint lemonade.

To set the spread, put all of the dishes and desserts out on the serving space along with the accompaniments, placing the cold salads and dips last.

Spread Tips:

  • Everything can be made at least a day in advance.
  • This is a great spread to serve potluck-style by assigning each host different recipes to bring to the celebration.
  • Got Leftovers? Leftovers can be stored properly and enjoyed over the next few days. If the salads have set out at room temperature for longer than 2 hours, it’s best not to keep or eat them.
