It feels like it’s been so long since our last three-day weekend, but great news folks: Memorial Day Weekend has arrived! If you’re like us, you’ll do some relaxing this weekend, spend some time outside, maybe catch a Memorial Day parade and quite likely spend time with family and friends at a Memorial Day cook-out, party or barbecue! It’s once again time to celebrate with food.
Gathered here for you are some tasty ideas for drinks, salads and sweet desserts to complete your cookout. The burgers and dogs will take center-stage but you can’t beat a great cold, summer salad piled on the plate next to the grilled goods. And you must have a dessert… otherwise the party just feels incomplete!
This morning I had a great time sharing a couple of these salads and sweets with the sweet and talented folks at Fox Local 22/44 news station on the Morning Brew program.
The savory aroma of the Green Goddess Buttermilk Potato Salad and the Bacon Tomato & Basil Rice Salad filled the studio, and I also got in an action shot of dusting the Sweet Lemon Strawberry Sandwich Cookies with confectioner’s sugar! Amanda Lindquist and I then took to the shortcake crust to build a Grilled Peaches & Cream Shortcake With A Few Red Raspberries. So easy to bring together, and full of summer color and flavor. Check out our video below!
And now, take a look at these tasty recipes for Memorial Day Weekend drinks, salads and desserts. Pin them, bookmark them, but most importantly make one! Or many! And when you do drop me a line and let me know what you think!
Happy Memorial Day Everyone!
