Take the guess work out of planning your next summer cookout or potluck with these recipes for the 15 best burgers, dogs and BBQ favorites!
I have no trouble coming up with salads and side dishes when planning a party, but sometimes I can’t decide what to make for the main course.
That’s why I asked some of my favorite bloggers for their suggestions. I was blown away by what they came up with!
(And guess what? They’re all vegan!)
But even if you don’t follow a plant-based diet, these recipes are all perfect for Meatless Monday or just a change of pace when you want to eat a little lighter and healthier.
I like to serve a variety of salads and dips to go along with these entrees.
One of my favorites for warm weather is Summer Hearts of Palm Salad.
And I highly recommend making a big bowl of guacamole for people to munch on while the main course is on the grill.
