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!
