It’s almost Memorial Day weekend and I have visions of sunshine and sangria dancing through my head. Do you travel for the holiday or enjoy that extra day at home? I’ve been traveling a lot this spring and am kind of looking forward to a low key, long weekend at home shopping some sales, going to a baseball game, and lots of grilling outside.
I can appreciate all of the obligatory holiday weekend barbecue classics: potato salad, mac and cheese, hot dogs off the grill, yes please. Maybe it’s my age showing, but in life and on the table I like a little bit of balance these days – a few healthier options to accompany the indulgences. Show me the greens!
These recipes prove that fresh, summery salads certainly don’t have to be boring, but can complete a great outdoor party spread. Enjoy your nice long weekend, my American friends!
