Labor Day Cookout Menu

Fresh Melon Salad

Fresh Melon Salad

Linda Larsen
This menu is made entirely on the grill except, of course, for the fabulous fruit salad. Why not make this event a neighborhood party and invite your friends to bring their grills for a huge cookout?

You can choose just one main dish and side dish if you'd like, for a simpler and easier menu.

Labor Day Cookout Menu

  • Pork and Mango Skewers
    This is one of my favorite appetizer recipes of all time. You can substitute peaches or nectarines for the mangoes if you'd like.
  • The Best BBQ Ribs
    A savory and flavorful homemade barbecue sauce makes these ribs something special.
  • Beer Can Chicken
    If you've never tried chicken cooked on a beer can, this is the weekend for it! The beer makes the chicken super juicy and tender. Yum.
  • Grilled Cheese Bread
    This tender and cheesy bread is a real treat. When cooked on the grill, it develops a smoky flavor too.
  • Melon Salad
    Melon, mint, and citrus juices combine to make a fabulous, sweet and cool salad that everyone loves.
  • Grilled Vegetable Packets
    Prepare these packets ahead of time and keep them in the fridge until you're ready to grill.
  • Grilled Angel Food with Fruit Salsa
    And this non fat dessert is the perfect ending for your grilled meal. It's sweet and tart, cold and hot, and delicious!
