I was just about to post a new recipe for Memorial Day when I started thinking of all the recipes that I have posted here in the past that would be great for Memorial Day or any other occasion where people have picnics or BBQ’s so I decided to collect them all in to one article. I am going to call this my recipe collection of Cook Out and Picnic Recipes.
So check out the ones you are interested ignore the ones you are not interested in but I hope you find at least one recipe here that you can use. There are sauces, marinades, drinks, desserts, appetizers, side dishes, and main dishes.
Roasted Garlic Dip – I posted this recently for National Garlic Day, but Garlic Dip is great any time of year. Great with veggies, or chips.
Asian Chicken and Mandarin Orange Salad – A nice light salad, a great side dish for cook outs.
Wing Recipes originally posted for the super bowl but they make nice picnic food too.
Buttery Butter Scotch Cookies – Cookies are always great at picnics and BBQ’s
Sweet and Salty Strawberry Pie – originally posted for Labor day but could just as easily be served on Memorial Day.
5 Different Healthy Grilling Options – Also originally posted for Labor but would be just as good on memorial Day.
Spicy Chicken Scewers – I was quite the busy beaver last Labor Day here is another one I posted for Labor Day last year. Again this would be just perfect for Memorial Day as well.
Grilled Peaches with Berry Cream Sauce – A nice light fruity dessert that you can prepare on the grill.
Kenny’s Taco Salad – I posted this last 4th of July. My friend Kenny makes the most amazing taco salad and he let me share the recipe. This is a perfect side dish for any picnic or cookout.
Strawberry White and Blue Parfaits – This is a light dessert that is perfect for Memorial Day or the 4th of July.
Orange and Green Summer Salad – This is a nice cool side dish for a summer cook out.
White Wine Peach Chillers – A nice drink to serve at a BBQ or Summer Party – I created an alcoholic version and a non alcoholic version. I also provided advice on how to make it a no or low sugar beverage.
Frugal Baked Beans – This is a recipe for someone who has more time than money. Everything is from scratch. This is great if you are serving a large amount of people on a limited budget.
