May 15, 2015 – Memorial Day weekend is for a few things: honoring those who have served our country, visiting with friends and family near and far…and cooking up the first barbeque of the summer season! Traditional favorites like burgers, potato salad and cookies have their place at the table, but these recipes from the ALDI Test Kitchen are sure to have you revamping your menu for years to come.
So Gouda Burger
Infused with steak seasonings and barbecue sauce, this burger will knock you off your seat at first bite. If that hasn’t sparked your interest, close your eyes and picture crispy bacon and grilled onions a top a juice burger – did that help? We hope so…
Green Bean Potato Parmesan Salad
Potato salad is a tried and true side kick to your Memorial Day barbeque, but we’ve kicked it up a notch. With tender potatoes, crisp green beans, freshly grated parmesan cheese and a homemade dressing, this recipe will up the ante.
Mix and Match Watermelon Salads
A sweet, crimson watermelon dish is the perfect addition to your menu. These quick and easy recipes will keep your guests feeling cool in the summer heat as they snack on different types of watermelon salads throughout the party. Offer up a variety by making all three options: spicy, creamy and nutty.
Freezie Fruit Pops
End your party on a cool note with naturally candied, colorful fruit pops. Mix and match your favorite fruits with white grape, apple or pineapple juice to create the perfect homemade ice pop. Add a decorative ribbon to the end of the stick and show off that holiday spirit. They’re kid friendly, too!
