I love a good potluck –– people gathering together with great food, drinks and music while making you feel like part of a community. I haven’t been to (or hosted) a potluck in quite some time, so when I found out about the annual Johnson’s Backyard Garden Spring Potluck I could not resist.

What does one take to a potluck dinner at Johnson’s Backyard Garden on a beautiful spring evening? Sure, there are classics such as a hearty potato salad or zesty macaroni salad but I wanted to take something different that would pair well with the spit-fired, machete-cut, roasted pig being served to the crowd. Glorious golden beets bought from Johnson’s Backyard Garden at the farmers market and the fact that this was a kid-friendly event were the inspiration for my Local Savour White Pizza with Golden Beets, Roasted Garlic, Feta Cheese & Fresh Basil. I prepped everything ahead of time, threw it in the oven just before heading out the door so it could be served warm and cut the pizza into square shapes for easier grabbing and sharing. Of course, some of you know, I am not recognized for showing up with only one thing (it’s a curse, really) so there was also a simple fresh green salad and homemade chocolate chip cookies added into our potluck offerings.

I can’t think of a better way to spend a Sunday afternoon –– sounds of clucking chickens and kids playing combined with great live music, surrounded by terrific people and delightful food while sitting under the pecan trees down on the farm.
