Get Grillin’: Make Your Memorial Day Memorable

May 19, 2020
Meats and vegetables cooking on a grill

Your kick-off to summer may look a little different this year, but it is still an opportunity to get out and grill.

To start, you can brush up on your grill skills with my low carb grilling guide, where you’ll find tips for grilling everything from poultry and produce, to burgers and steak. Speaking of steak, check out these suggestions for picking the best cut of steak.

Once you’ve decided on your main dish (be sure to peruse our low carb recipes if you need some inspiration), you can start your meal with fresh guacamole and cut-up veggies, shrimp cocktail, artichokes with lemon butter, brie-stuffed grilled jalapenos or an antipasti platter featuring salami, prosciutto, a variety of cheeses, olives, marinated artichoke hearts, fresh veggies and hummus and whatever else you have on hand in your pantry that makes for fun finger food.

Low Carb Memorial Day Side Dishes

Next up, you can take your pick from this array of salads and veggie side dishes, plus corn on the cob and coleslaw:

Pasta Salad with Pesto and Zucchini Ribbons

Italian Deli Pasta Salad

Sesame Asparagus Salad

Watermelon, Feta and Cucumber Salad

Grilled Corn on the Cob with Lime-Cilantro Butter

Mixed Fruit Salad

Fresh Fruit Kebabs with Almond Crème
