Hi guys!

True story… this weekend wasn’t the most fun.  I spent it doing a lot of housework and it rained A LOT but I’m so glad I finally got some stuff done.  I figured it was the price I paid for running around so much the past few weeks.  I’m really looking forward to next weekend though when I’m going to have some fun for Memorial Day weekend.  I always like to have a little cookout… sometimes I invite friends over and sometimes it’s just the Hubs and I, but it’s always a good time and involves lots of good food.  To get a jump start on menu planning for the weekend I decided to put together some of my favorite healthy vegetarian Memorial Day cookout recipes.  These are my tried and true FAVORITE summer foods that make an appearance at my table year after year.  I hope you will consider giving some of them a try this weekend.  Everything on here is approved by my meat eating hubby, so you know whether you’re a vegetarian or not these are some recipes you’ll love.

12 Healthy Vegetarian Memorial Day Cookout Recipes

5 Ingredient Fresh Strawberry Salsa

Fruit salsa is a must have a Memorial Day cookout.  I picked my strawberry salsa to make this list because those ripe berries are perfectly in season right now.  However, you could also try Peach, Pineapple, Mango, Watermelon or Mango Avocado Salsa!

This rainbow chickpea salad is perfect for summer!  It’s light, yet filling and easy to make.  Bonus points for it not having any dairy to spoil outside.  Also try my White Bean Salad for a slightly different version.
