  1. Grilled T-Bone Steak:
  2. Hawaiian Macaroni Salad:
    • Creamy, tangy, and slightly sweet, this classic pasta salad features chopped celery, shredded carrots, and green onion. It’s a refreshing side dish that pairs well with grilled meats1.
  3. Grill-Fried Chicken:
    • Crispy chicken cooked on the grill—less mess, same great taste! The chicken is tender and flavorful, making it a hit for your Memorial Day cookout1.
  4. Watermelon-Feta Orzo Salad:
    • A cool and refreshing salad that combines sweet watermelon with salty feta cheese. It’s a delightful addition to any barbecue-centric menu1.
  5. Grilled Veggie Skewers:
    • Skewer up your favorite vegetables (think bell peppers, zucchini, mushrooms, and onions), marinate them in tangy balsamic dressing, and grill them to perfection1.
  6. Blackberry Pie:
    • For dessert, indulge in a flaky butter crust filled with juicy blackberries. Serve it with a scoop of ice cream or a dollop of whipped cream1.

Remember, Memorial Day is not only about delicious food but also about honoring and remembering those who made the ultimate sacrifice for our country.
