Time to Elevate your BBQ Game

Summer is BBQ Season – Time to elevate your BBQ Game!
One of the best smells of the Summer is the distinct waft of BBQ cooking. Whether you’re a seasoned grill master or a novice cook, here are 6 easy and tasty summer BBQ marinades and salads which will add a burst of flavor to your outdoor dining parties.

1.Spicy BBQ Sauce
A classic BBQ sauce with a kick, is perfect for adding bold, smoky flavors to ribs, wings, and burgers. When brushed onto the meat in the last 10 minutes of cooking, it caramelizes nicely on the grill, creating a delicious glaze.

2. Honey Soy Marinade
The combination of soy sauce and honey creates a perfect balance of salty and sweet flavors. This marinade is versatile and works well with chicken and pork, enhancing their natural flavors. Meat should be marinated in this sauce for 2 hours before hitting the gril

3. Lemon Herb Marinade
This light and fresh sauce is ideal for summer. The acidity of the lemon helps to tenderize the meat, while the herbs add a burst of flavor. Perfect for chicken, shrimp, and vegetables, just marinade for 30 – 60 minutes pre cooking.

4. Caprese Salad
A fresh and light caprese salad is the perfect balance to heavy and smoky BBQ flavors. The combination of tomatoes, mozzarella, and basil drizzled in olive oil & balsamic glaze is very refreshing and quick to assemble.

5. Quinoa Salad
Nutritious and versatile, this salad can be served cold, making it perfect for a hot summer day. The addition of diced cucumber, cherry tomatoes, onions and feta cheese adds texture and flavor, while the quinoa provides a satisfying base. Toss all ingredients together in a bowl and let it sit for 30 minutes before serving

6. Grilled Corn Salad
Grilled corn is a great way to incorporate the smoky flavors of the grill into a side dish. It’s sweet, savory, and colorful, adding a vibrant and tasty element to your spread. Combine corn (off the cob) diced red bell pepper, red onion, chopped cilantro, limejuice and olive oil before serving warm or cold.

Your summer BBQs will be a hit every time, when you add these simple yet flavorful marinades and salads, so fire up the grill and enjoy the outdoors with family and friends.
