Whether you are planning to host a grill out, pack up a picnic, or head to the beach this holiday weekend, here are the 22 vegetarian Memorial Day recipes for a laid back weekend that I would suggest you consider making:
Starting out this vegetarian Memorial Day Recipes round-up with this veggie packed Vegetarian Antipasto Salad with Pepperoni-Spiced Roasted Carrots because it would be a perfect salad to serve as a side when grilling out or to just make and enjoy as a lunch main.
Small batch cocktails will be the way to go this year! This Jalapeño Mango Lime Gimlet is a go-to for me when I want a refreshing and spicy cocktail! If you make the simple syrup ahead of time then this cocktail comes together in just a few minutes!
This Easy Broccoli Raisin Salad with pistachios and herbs is another side salad that would be perfect for your grill out. You could even grill the broccoli instead of roasting it!
These Orange Rhubarb Margaritas are the perfect tequila drink to enjoy on a sunny spring day. The rhubarb simple syrup can be made ahead of time so they can be whipped up in just a few minutes.
This Goat Cheese Fritter and Apple Salad with Brown Sugar Pecans and Maple Vinaigrette is a hearty meal with enough components to make each bite interesting and filling.
These No-Bake Cherry Cheesecake Cups with Amaretto are the perfect single serving desserts to feed you and your friends during the hot days of summer. Make these when cherries are in season and you don’t feel like turning your oven on.
Make this Sweet and Spicy Peach Poblano coleslaw to bring your next taco night, grill out, or sandwich party to the next level! This coleslaw hits on so many notes – it’s bright, tangy, a bit spicy and just a touch sweet!
