Recipe Swap Roundup - Memorial Day

Memorial Day is a day of remembrance for those who have died in our nation's service. It also marks the unofficial start of summer and many of us use the long weekend to get together with friends and family for a cookout. I thought a Memorial Day theme for the cooking board recipe swap would be a great way to switch up the dishes we usually see at cookouts.

Kate really enjoyed my recipe for Grilled Corn Salad, which is one of my all-time favorite side dishes when corn is in season:

Mary Ellen loves experimenting with different pasta salads so she was thrilled to get Sundried Tomato Pasta Salad for the swap:

Melissa loved all the flavors in her recipe for Mediterranean Layer Dip:

Christine loved that the veggies in her Sweet Beginnings' Summer Pasta Salad really shown through:

The Cookaholic Wife had another take on a Mediterranean Layer Dip:

Melissa was thrilled for an excuse to make panzanella, also known as Grilled Ciabatta Bread Salad:

Jaida's recipe for Fruit Kabobs wasn't exactly a recipe but it fit perfectly with her detox diet:

Jey really enjoyed her recipe for Grilled Corn with Garlic Butter, Lime and Parmesan:

My recipe for Avocado and Tahini Salad was a nice change from our usual salads:

Jenny, a newcomer to the recipe swaps, made a Marinated Carrot Salad:

The Cooking Nurse had a delicious dessert recipe, S’more Brownies:

Tyler made a refreshing Orzo Salad with Watermelon and Feta:

Pin It!
