We are halfway to the weekend, who’s ready for it? Memorial Day is known for barbecues and early summer celebrations. Whether you are planning to barbecue outdoors or stay in, here are some patriotic Memorial Day recipes to add to your menu. First up, my favorite barbecue pulled chicken sliders with sweet and crunchy mango slaw. You can get the recipe right here.
Set the scene with a Patriotic Cheese Board! I love this idea for bringing red, white and blue to the table. How cute are those star-shaped cheese slices? See more on Eat Yourself Skinny.
I can’t wait for the flavors of barbecued chicken on the grill. This Grilled Honey Lime Cilantro Chicken by The Recipe Critic has my mouth-watering!
A light summer salad is always a good idea when it comes to barbecues. This Blueberry, Strawberry and Jicama Salsa by Two Peas and Their Pod is perfect for Memorial Day.
I’m all about appetizers, and this White Cheddar and Vidalia Dip by Pizzazzerie looks amazing! Dive in with red bell peppers, blue corn tortilla chips and toasted tortilla stars.
Now all this menu needs is a good cocktail, and dessert. My Mixed Berry Wine Slushies will be your new favorite way to drink wine this summer. Cheers!
Last but not least, dessert! Strawberry Rhubarb pie with a stars and stripes lattice crust is patriotic and extra delicious. Rhubarb season is short and sweet so enjoy it while it lasts with this classic pie. The crust is a family favorite recipe and it’s buttery, flaky and delicious. Get the recipe here. Happy Memorial Day!
