Memorial Day: Getting Together Without the Grill

Memorial Day: Getting Together Without the Grill

Pasta salad, potato salad, egg salad...summer is the time to whip out all those salads you've been craving. And what better kickoff for these tasty sides and starters than your very own Memorial Day Party?

Last week we planned a menu that could all be made on the grill, but this week we're going show you some recipes for an indoor barbecue. This way, rain or shine, you can still have that Memorial Day party! Feel free to combine both menus for one tasty Memorial Day extravaganza.

Presentation Pointers 1. Show your patriotism and remind your guests what the holiday of Memorial Day is for by hanging American flags, posters and banners throughout your venue.

2. Display your food buffet style so everyone can easily go up and grab some more of that finger-lickin' food.

3. Get into the theme by buying American flag paper plates, cups, tablecloths and any other necessary partyware to serve your food.
