With barbecue season just around the corner, Memorial Day is a great time to bust out the summer recipes. We’ve got a list of 10 yummy treats and zesty dishes that are perfect for your first summertime celebration!
1. Strawberry ice cream cake
Strawberries in the summertime are a must. Take ice cream cake to the next level with this slightly lemony, very berry and totally tasty treat.
2. Roasted corn and jalapeño salsa
Get seasonal while you spice things up. Use this fresh and zesty salsa on your plate of nachos, over grilled fish or just plain-and-simple with a handful of tortilla chips.
3. Boozy banana split milkshake
This sweet and creamy concoction of deliciousness is the perfect complement to grilled hamburgers and potato salad. Shake up your holiday get-together with a dessert-inspired drink.
4. Pulled pork sliders
We’re certainly not pulling your leg with this pulled pork meal. Make a bunch of these mini sandwiches loaded with Hass avocado and carmelized onion and watch them practically “slide” off the plate!
5. Grilled juicy Lucy burgers
Warning: There’s double trouble here! If you don’t already know what a juicy Lucy is, now is the perfect time to learn. Gooey and delicious cheese gets melted between two hamburger patties to create this meal to remember.
6. Twice baked potato salad
Not just once, but twice! This creative twist on a classic is the perfect way to take your Memorial Day from mediocre to unforgettable.
7. Spicy hot corn dip
Queso dip can’t even compare to this warm and zesty appetizer. The perfect blend of creamy cheeses and crisp corn makes this one an absolute must-have.
8. BLT pasta salad
Sandwiches certainly don’t belong in a bowl… but this is an exception. Bacon, lettuce and tomato are only just the beginning to this delectable pasta salad. Serve it as a side dish or a main course, but be sure to make plenty to share.
9. Tequila lime pie shooters
You may have seen a bunch of crazy shooters before, but trust us, none like this one! These frozen tequila lime pie treats make for a wicked-great time.
10. Summer citrus bars
These citrus bars definitely do their name justice. The zesty tang of the lemon in the bars is perfectly complemented by cool and crisp whipped cream or a light sprinkle of powdered sugar.
