It's not officially summer yet, but it might as well be. Memorial Day has come and gone, school is out and the humidity is here. If summertime is calling you, check out these five tasty, refreshing and just plain fun things for summer.

1. Layering flavors:
Backyard cooks merge marinades, rubs, brines, mops and sauces.

2. Fired up fruit:
Grilled fruits are being skewered alongside meats, pureed to make tenderizing marinades and chopped for salsas and relishes.

3. Shaken, stirred and grilled:
Flavorful spirits replace vinegar or other liquids for new combinations such as mojito marinades and bourbon-spiked pork tenderloin. If you like to experiment with flavors, here are some great suggestions:

  • Cilantro and lime: This zingy pair creates a refreshing taste of summer.
  • Chipotle and maple: An updated take on smoky, spicy and sweet.
  • Brown sugar and bourbon: A dose of Southern charm when dining alfresco
  • Red chili sauce and mango: This sweet, spicy combination adds great flavor on the grill.
4. On the side:
What's a summer cookout without potato salad? Want to impress your guests or family with something new? Try a taste of the Mediterranean with quick, healthy and flavorful Greek potato salad featuring Kalamata olives, Feta cheese, cucumbers and Greek yogurt. It comes with just two grams of fat per serving, so you can still look fit in your summer swimwear.

5. Don't Feel Like Cooking: Join us here at Oglebay for many dining options:

  • Ihlenfeld Dining Room has a great new menu featuring many fresh seasonal options
  • Glassworks Grill has a new menu with many exciting fun items
