Choose a Holiday!
Labor Day is that holiday that’s associated with one last hurrah outside before school starts and the weather begins to turn. It’s the perfect time for friends and family to gather together for a Labor Day picnic, so found some fabulous labor day picnic recipes for you to create a complete meal from start to finish. Our take on a Labor Day picnic encourages people to celebrate their local harvest and embrace healthy food options. Why stick to the standard grilled hamburger when you can try something totally new and healthy for you that is packed with explosive flavor you’re going to love.
You might be able to sneak in a lot of healthy alternatives to your traditional Labor Day picnic but your friends and family are going to expect some standbys. Chips are one of those things people will totally be craving and will snack on throughout the day. So try this easy pita chips, which are completely delicious and can be combined with a variety of dips for great flavor combinations.
This summer appetizer is an explosion of color and flavor packed into one little bite sized morsel. With the end of summer approaching and cherry tomatoes in full bloom with more than you know what to do with hanging on every tomato plant, this pesto and salami wrapped tomato recipe gives you an option for decreasing that supply of tomatoes and will leave your guests grabbing for these appetizers even after they’re long gone.
The best way to celebrate the end of the season is by incoroporating as many fresh seasonal foods as possible, these veggie tostadas to exactly that and incorporate a few little surprise taste treats as well. It’s an unexpected delight that is so much more exciting than the traditional grilled hotdogs and burgers. And if you’re itching for that grilled flavor, grill your tortillas and tomatoes and you’ll love this treat even more.
Grills tend to take centerstage in summer holiday celebrations, especially at a picnic since they’re so easy to use and you can still have a hot meal. So why not use your grill for dessert as well. Take the fresh summer flavors of seasonal fruit and grill them up to bring out an even more complex flavor that might be more popular than the rest of the meal. AND its healthy too!
