Memorial Day Food is all about fun and easy recipes to share with friends and family. It’s about being outside and enjoying a bit of time off from work and school. Warm weather, simple recipes, drink in hand and sunshine on your face – welcome to the unofficial kick-off to summer.
Memorial Day Food Ideas
From burgers to side dishes, salads and appetizers, this is the kind of spread we put out on Memorial Day. Any summer holiday around here looks like this. We have the grill going all day long cooking up grilled vegetables, burgers and even grilled bread. The temps are high, so we do most of the cooking outside. This is the food of summer. Low key, easy recipes that don’t take much time or energy to make.
Easy Memorial Day Desserts
My family puts out just as many desserts as food offerings. Sometimes, the dessert table is even bigger than the food table. Everyone likes to nibble a cookie or a bite of this and a bite of that, so we usually have quite a few to choose from. The best part is the leftover treats that get packed up and sent home with everyone. Whether you prefer no bake desserts or portable treats that can fit into little hands, there is something for everyone on this list.
Red, White and Blue Cocktails
What is a holiday weekend without a cocktail or two? There are a couple of non-alcoholic beverages on this list too, as well as ways to turn the cocktails into mocktails. Whether you want your drinks leaded or unleaded, there are nine drinks to choose from.
