The long weekend is finally here and I am ready for some relaxing. I am also ready for the start of outdoor picnics, barbecues and other summer gatherings.
Struggling with what to make? We’ve got some ideas to wow your guests all weekend long. So turn on the grill, open some wine and take a deep breath, And maybe a big sip of a cocktail.

Lest you think we forgot about Memorial Day with all of the excitement about the dairy-filled weekend ahead, here’s a menu dedicated to barbecued goodness.
Start off your meal with a tangy grilled caesar salad. Feel free to leave off the cheese if you want a pareve meal. Once everyone is crunching into their toasty romaine, serve any one of these great summer drink ideas.
Whip up a batch of my absolute favorite barbecue sauce from Grow and Behold. This sauce is a great marinade for chicken (they recommend wings), but I recently discovered that it makes a delicious boozy condiment for hotdogs.
In addition to tossing your regular onion, zucchini, eggplant, and peppers onto the grill, consider mixing things up with some sweet and spicy grilled pickles. If you want to make things really fancy, make some pickled spring onions.
Finish off the evening by channeling the delights of the campfire with these S’more Truffles.
