Recipes Great for Memorial Day
Memorial Day may not be the official start of the summer, but it feels like it. Days are longer and warmer, grills are starting to be fired up, and everyone's spirits are high. Take advantage of your day off and cook up a feast that feels like summer for your friends and family.
Of course, Pierre and steak are a match made in heaven, but adding a chili like Urfa or Aleppo amplifies the flavors and provides smokiness and brightness.
Dried herbs are also great for seasoning grilled meats. Herbes de Carmel works really well with simple grilled chicken thighs and meaty king oyster mushrooms.
Chunky, coarse spice blends like Iris hold up really well when grilled and complement the barbecue's strong smoky flavors.
Drizzle a flavorful dressing made out of OMG over grilled asparagus for a nice tangy vegetable side.
The crispy sweet freshness of a spring salad is the perfect accompaniment to a giant feast of grilled meats and veg.
Keeping in line with serving fresh, cold sides, an orzo salad is the perfect pasta side for a grilled main.
End the meal with something sweet. Top your crisp with vanilla ice cream for a festive treat.
