Of course Memorial Day is about remembering those men and women who have served our country and who have bravely fought for our freedom… I am so very thankful for their service. Another thing about Memorial Day is it brings family and friends together to enjoy some tasty food. I have a bunch of easy recipes that are perfect for outdoor dining while camping, hanging out at the park, or in your backyard. I have included some quick and easy recipes like French Dip Sliders with Tomato and Provolone, Barbecue Chicken Sandwiches with Cole Slaw, Farmer’s Salad, and Avocado and Tomato Salad. I have also a few more that take a bit of time but are oh so worth it – such as, Baked Barbecue Ribs, Oven Baked “Fried” Pickles, and Barbecued Beef Sliders. All of these recipes are crowd pleasers and pretty affordable.
