Memorial Day is a time to celebrate and remember the men and women who have served our country and bravely fought for our freedom. It is also a great opportunity for friends and family to gather and spending time outside and enjoying some delicious food! Here are some great recipes for your backyard barbeque, picnic, or party:
1. Roasted Corn, Avocado and Black Bean Salsa: The roasted corn adds a nice chewy sweetness to this salsa. It works great as a dip with tortilla chips, or as an accompaniment to grilled fish or chicken, or just enjoyed by the spoonful. If you make a large batch, be sure to add the avocado just before serving to keep it from browning.
2. Chipotle Lime Grilled Skewers with Avocado Ranch: There’s nothing like a good skewer recipe to get the grill cranked up for the season.
