30 Delicious Recipes for Memorial Day – Try these recipes for your Memorial Day weekend celebration, including lots of unique, healthy and flavorful options

It’s easy to forget the true reason we celebrate Memorial Day– remembering our fallen U.S. soldiers and war heroes. I feel a profound gratitude to the men and women who serve our country; I am humbled by their sacrifice. Every year I try to attend a local Memorial Day celebration to support our troops and their families. I hope you have a chance to do the same this weekend.

In addition to being an opportunity to honor our troops, this is a long holiday weekend. It’s a perfect chance to relax with family and friends. Memorial Day marks the beginning of summer, a season best spent cooking tasty food on the grill and dining outside in the sunshine (when the weather cooperates!). I know many of you will be spending your holiday weekend doing these very things, so I thought I’d share some of my favorite summer recipes. I’ve included a little something for everyone whether you’re a meat-lover, vegetarian or vegan.

How will you be spending your long weekend?

  1. Baking a vanilla cake with whip creme topping, not sure what were bbq depends on what looks good at Costco in am, spaghetti salad, baked beans, corn on cob, french bread and deviled eggs. Margaritas too!

  2. Lebanon lamb burgers,

    2 Lbs ground free range Lamb. 4 lrg Garlic cloves
    1 organic Fresh lemon
    Juice from whole lemon.
    1 small onion diced & minced.
    And 2 tbsp of fresh chopped mint leaves stems removed- minced finely.
    Mix all together
    Shape into quarter pound burgers and grill.

    These are my friend whose family called him uncle Kenny. They were Lebanese. They would eat the medium rare or pink.

  3. My Aunt still makes her Pineapple Upside Down Cake in an iron skillet! Also my Cousins camp out a lot and they make theirs over the campfire, the old fashion way…just as you described in this article!

  4. Hello from Down Under! It may not be Memorial Day here but my printer has been busy these last few minutes – love your salads and fish skewers, but as hommus is never absent from my fridge the pepper one will be the first recipe tried :) !

  5. When I was in the restaurant biz many moons ago, I made pineapple upside down cake all the time. That looks so good! Guess I’m gonna have to make one soon. :)
