Memorial Day is the day we remember those who’ve fought for our freedom in America. This holiday is also when we kick off summer. Summer is the season of backyard barbecues which means there’s no better way to celebrate Memorial Day than with a barbecue. There are many patriotic recipes you can use on Memorial Day but there are even more perfect Memorial Day recipes. Aux Delices Foods has a few of the best Memorial Day recipes for you to enjoy and we want to share a few of our top picks with you.
Celebrate Memorial Day with some of the best Memorial Day recipes from Aux Delices Foods and throw the perfect barbecue to kick off your summer.
Best Ever Guacamole
Throwing a barbecue means you’ll need appetizers for your guests to enjoy while you work on the grill. Chips and dips are always great appetizers during a barbecue and homemade dips are best.
Lemonade is the ideal drink for a hot summer’s day. While lemonade is often sweet and tangy, adding an extra, adult-only, kick to it is even better.
Spice Rubbed Flank Steak
A Memorial Day barbecue is not complete without something on the grill. Flank steak is a cut of meat that works great on the grill. Especially if you soak the flank steak in a marinade first thing in the morning.
Farro Salad with Asparagus and Corn
Potato salads are often present at barbecues and there’s nothing wrong with a good potato salad. However, a farro salad is an even better, healthier replacement that is easy to make and even more delicious.
Sour Cream Cornbread
When cornbread is made just right, it can be a game changer to any meal. At Aux Delices Foods, the cornbread is made with sour cream and has a flavor you won’t soon forget. Now, you can make this Memorial Day recipe alongside your flank steak.
Watermelon Tomato and Feta Salad
A hot, Memorial Day requires a refreshing dish that cleanses the palate and refreshes the body in flavorful ways. The watermelon, tomato and feta salad is a dish that does all of the above and more.
A semifreddo is an Italian dessert but it has earned its place on a Memorial Day recipes menu.The partially frozen dessert makes for a perfect ending dish to any Memorial Day celebration. The best part of semifreddo is that it doesn’t require an ice cream maker to put together.
