Labor Day is almost here and instead of despairing the end of summer, we’re determined to make the most of it.
We’ve rounded up our favorite summer recipes for our like-minded readers looking to fire up their grills as often as possible before it’s too late–and don’t worry, we’ve got options for the vegetarians too. Bon appetit!
Grilled Steak with Brown Butter, Heirloom Tomatoes, and Basil
Grilled steak with fresh summer tomatoes speaks for itself as one of the most classic meals out there. Add browned butter and basil into the mix and you’re set for a deeply delicious and memorable meal. And while your grill is already fired up, why not throw some sourdough on it to really take your meal to the next level.
Grilled Lamb Chops with Cucumber-Mint Relish
A sophisticated summer staple, grilled lamb chops are ideal for serving at an elevated summer dinner party or Sunday lunch. Paired with a cucumber-mint relish that bursts with seasonal flavors, it’s a recipe so good you may find yourself firing up the grill come winter too. We wouldn’t blame you.
Saucy Barbecue Chicken
Is there anything that screams summer like barbecue chicken? We think not. It’s the ideal crowd pleaser for everyone–from omnivores to kids to those who don’t eat red meat–and served with sliced pickles and bread and butter. It makes for an unbelievably delicious lunch or dinner–just make sure you make enough sauce to slather more on top.
Summery Zucchini Pizza
We know, we know–these BBQ faves don’t exactly leave vegetarians spoiled for choice. But a key tenet of entertaining is making sure no one at your summer soiree feels left out, and that means giving the vegetarians in the crowd something to be excited about–and our summery zucchini pizza is just that. Packed with basil, zucchini, and parmesan, it’s the filling, meat-free treat that every summer party needs.
