Labor Day Party Recipes
Watermelon Feta Mint Skewers
I have been eating watermelon all summer, and this recipe is one of my favorites. Kids and adults alike will love this recipe for Watermelon Feta Mint Skewers from Bites Of Bri. This quick and easy appetizer can be made bite size, or could be thrown in a bowl for a refreshing side. Fresh basil could be substituted for mint and will be equally delicious.
Easy Nachos & Guacamole
I am a nacho fanatic. I think I could eat Mexican food every day. I find Nachos & Guacamole are always a crowd pleaser at a party. Use our quick and easy recipe to whip up a batch for your Labor Day celebration and do not forget to add those last summer tomatoes. If your grill is already hot, throw on a few chicken breasts to dice up over these tasty nachos. What time did you say to come over to your place?
Grilled Hawaiian Teriyaki Burger
One of my absolute favorite summertime treats is grilled pineapple. Change up your burger for this flavorful Grilled Hawaiian Teriyaki Burger complete with delicious pineapple created by Skinnytaste. When picking a ripe pineapple, make sure it smells sweet. If you pick a sour one accidentally, cut the top and bottom off the pineapple and put it in a bag in the fridge overnight to ripen it quickly.
Asparagus, Tomato and Goat Cheese Quinoa Salad
I like recipes that look like I worked hard. In reality with a family buzzing around me, I like bringing my recipes to the table quickly. This Asparagus, Tomato and Goat Cheese Quinoa Salad is a perfect cold side to make ahead the night before your party. With the last delicious tomatoes of summer and decadent goat cheese, this salad is sure to be a hit. Fresh green beans are delicious this time of year and can be substituted for asparagus if they look tastier at the grocery store.
If you were hoping to have a dish that looks a little splashier at your Labor Day celebration, this Fruit Pie will steal the show. Choose fruit that is patriotic, or just your favorite fruits. Use a readymade glaze, or melt down some jam until it is runny to make the shiny glaze. My favorite is apricot for a tart but sweet finish.
Patriotic Snack Mix
Add a pop of color to your Labor Day table. Check out this Patriotic Snack Mix recipe from Teaspoon Of Goodness. Snack mixes like this are simple to throw together. The best part is you can easily change up this recipe to include your favorite flavors. I love the recipe as is, but would probably skip the candy corn and add tart dried cranberries for my family.
Yogurt Blueberry Pie
Eat dessert first! This delicious Yogurt Blueberry Pie dessert is light, airy and perfect for a summer day. Berries are still delicious and inexpensive for a little longer. You can easily substitute whatever berry looks the most delicious in this recipe. Make this one the night before and shove it in the fridge for you party.
