The Summer barbecues, pot lucks, family pool days, and Summer fun all begin on Memorial Day. We are thankful for all the veterans who sacrifice so much for our country, especially those who made the ultimate sacrifice and lost their lives. While celebrating these individuals who keep our country safe, we know you want to stuff your tummies with yummy food. We wanted to share with you our favorite easy recipes perfect for a full meal at a picnic, barbecue, or party on Memorial Day.
First up is the main course. Since we all wish we could spend the day sitting on the beach in Hawaii, it is only fitting that we share the most dreamy Hawaiian Burger. It is topped with only the most delicious condiments and is literally to die for.
There is nothing more Summertime than a fresh, delicious salad. We introduce to you the apple salad of your dreams. It is topped with bacon, cranberries, and candied walnuts. Don’t let any Fall vibes enter your mind because this salad is perfect for summer and sure to be a total hit on Monday.
If your family won’t appreciate an apple salad, then of course we couldn’t leave you going to a party salad-less. May we introduce to you a go-to potato salad. Potato salad is a simple, yet delicious (and easy) essential! This recipe takes the usual potato salad up a notch with palate exciting spices. You’ve gotta try it to know just how good it truly is.
To wash all the yummy Memorial Day food down, you’ll need a summer punch. This cranberry raspberry punch is sure to quench your thirst and refresh your palate for dessert.
For dessert you cannot even think about serving anything other than these caramel apple cheesecake bars. These cheesecake bars are 7 layers of pure heaven. Easy to make, simple to share, and absolutely addicting. We dare you to try and not eat more than one.
We hope your Memorial Day is full of family, friends, prayers and thoughts of thankfulness to those who have died while serving in the military, and of course delicious food. 🇺🇸
