We love a 3 day weekend around here-who doesn't! At the lake, there's a park party that the kids love. Its potluck style so there's always tons of delicious food. This year, I'm making an orzo salad with grilled shrimp-I think its gonna be a big hit! I haven't made it yet, so its only an idea in my head-I'll post the recipe when its made. For now, I've picked a few of my favorite summer dishes to share with you for your holiday cookout.
My recent favorite-Whipped Corn Dip. This is a great complement to any grilled meats & veggies. Or serve as an appetizer with veggies or cracker to dip.
Would it be a cookout without salsa? I'm not so sure. My Black Bean & Corn Salsa features sweet corn, which is the freshest at this time of year, making your salsa amazing.
Since we are big corn lovers, I have no shortage of recipes for you: Corn Salad; Corn Zucchini Saute; End of Summer Orzo Salad and Tomato Corn Salad.
Have a pot luck this weekend? Always a hit, my Caprese Pasta Salad or Cilantro Slaw are great contributions to any party.
And lastly, potato salad is a staple at any cookout. My favorites are my Dilled Potato Salad-a lightened up take on a classic & a twist on that is my Mustard Dill Potato Salad.
Have a great weekend!
