Alisa Fleming offers a comprehensive array of alternatives for enjoying summer favorites, regardless of your dietary needs. She advises reading the labels on ground meats and processed meats such as hotdogs. There are some brands of processed meat products that are gluten- and dairy-free, and chicken, turkey and kosher are other healthful options. Suggestions are also given for hotdog/hamburger buns, salads including potato, whole grain, cabbage, pasta and bean, as well as grilled vegetables. Fleming also includes recipes for condiments like mustard, ketchup, salsa and barbecue sauce, as well as summer desserts including pies, cookies, bars, ice cream and fresh fruit.
