Getting together with friends and family is one of our favorite things to do in the summer. The kids can run around and play while the adults hang out and enjoy some adult conversation. I’m always looking for great BBQ recipes to take to the various cook-outs we go to on the weekends. I tend to fall back on my favorites like this Oriental Chicken Pasta Salad recipe, but that’s mainly because I didn’t plan for something else, or I was being lazy (probably more like I was being lazy). If this sounds like you and you are stressing about what to take…no worries! I have some of the best and easy BBQ recipes on the web…right here! So just sit back, scroll through, and pick a delicious recipe to take to your next cook-out!
I am a HUGE cauliflower fan. Now that Target sells cauliflower crumbles, I find anything and everything to put it in. And, being that Target is the only place that I can find the cauliflower crumbles at, I get my Target fix to! My husband is less than thrilled about that part! This Loaded Cauliflower Salad is definitely something I could see myself taking to a cook-out.
Another cauliflower salad I would consider taking is this Broccoli Cauliflower Salad.
Cauliflower not your thing? Do you prefer something a little more traditional? This California Potato Salad (pictured below) or this Warm Tuscan Bacon Potato Salad may be more what you are looking for! And really, a BBQ isn’t a BBQ without some sort of potato salad, right?!?
Where there’s a BBQ, there is always a pasta salad or a coleslaw. Like the potato salad, those two dishes seem to be a BBQ staple, as well. You can make a traditional pasta salad, if you would like, but I would give this Southwestern Pasta Salad a try. Sounds delicious!
If you are more of a coleslaw fan (like I am), then this Greek Style Coleslaw is one you may want to make. It kind of mixes the flavors of a coleslaw with a pasta salad!
Looking for something a little more summer-y? Try this Fresh Summer Corn Dip!
No BBQ is complete without desserts! Whether you make the Raspberry Swirl Brownies, the No Bake Raspberry Chocolate Cheesecake Bars (pictured below) or the Cheery Pie Bars, you will be the hit of the BBQ with one of those great BBQ recipes!
