Long days, bright sunshine, and tan lines. Summer is finally here, and we can’t think of anything more appropriate than to celebrate with a cookout complete with mouthwatering foods! What's more, a cookout is a great activity that you can enjoy from the safety and comfort of your own home. We’ve scoured Pinterest for the best cookout recipes, so all you need to worry about is firing up the grill.
This four ingredient kabob entrée will definitely be a crowd pleaser thanks to its sweet and salty flavor combo. The tangy pineapple pairs perfectly with the marinated chicken and savory bacon, all topped off with sugary BBQ sauce. It doesn’t get much more summer than that.
Hotdogs are a quintessential cookout food, but why not take it up a notch by marinating them before they hit the grill? This simple marinade is complete with chili sauce, onion powder, garlic powder, mustard, Worcestershire sauce, brown sugar, salt, and pepper. You might never go back to the original.
This onion blossom is the grilled version of the classic “bloomin’ onion.” It requires a bit more ingredients compared to the other recipes on this list, but will not leave you disappointed with its cheesy and well seasoned taste. It’s also an easily shareable dish, perfect for a cookout.
Attention all shrimp lovers, welcome to your new favorite summer seafood recipe. This shrimp kabob dish is not only quick, but is also perfectly finished with a smoky, sweet, and citrusy marinade. Serve the kabobs by themselves, over a salad, or even in a tortilla - you really can’t go wrong.
Balance out the heavy hitters with a salad that is more health conscious. This simple salad is both refreshing and nutritious thanks to the watermelon and arugula, and is also plenty filling because of the feta.
Boring potato salad has left the chat. This version stands out with sliced (not diced) potatoes that are topped with fresh dill and lemon. It feels more gourmet and is perfect for making ahead and whipping out whenever you’re ready. Did we mention it’s gluten free and vegan?
