Amy Wisniewski Jun 6, 2011 10:48 AM

Summer will officially be here June 21: Get your picnic baskets ready. For the next CHOW Recipe Challenge we want your best picnic side dish. This means your original recipes for green, grain, potato, or pasta salads; corn, green bean, or three-bean concoctions; or anything you can pack up in a basket or cooler and serve along with sandwiches or cold fried chicken. You have from Monday, June 6, 2011, at 1 a.m. ET until 11:59:59 p.m. ET on Sunday, June 12, 2011, to submit your recipe and win a great prize from CHOW and Krups!

Krups ( http://www.krupsusa.com/ ) is giving away their XL2000 Milk Frother, plus the winner will get a stylish CHOW T-shirt and a handy CHOW spatula.

                hey soypower, do you mean the Crispy Rice Cakes recipe? You did post it successfully. You can search CHOW and the recipes comes up.

                  I ended up just reposting the recipe. The first one got cut off somehow and doesn't include all the ingredients or instructions. The link you posted is the wrong one and the one I edited my post to reflect is the correct one...

                  Again, this is the correct one: http://www.chow.com/recipes/29717-cri...
