Apps, Salads and Sides
Marinated Snack Board by @thefeedfeed

Whenever we entertain, we ALWAYS put out some kind of board. Whether it's charcuterie or crudités, we love a "build your own" appetizer that anyone can enjoy. This snack board has briny olives, marinated feta and tons of crispy veg to munch on while the grill preheats. 
Chickpea Rotini Salad by @lorindabreeze

This pasta salad is dressed up with a zippy lemon-olive oil vinaigrette and can be made ahead of time. Toss in any extra veg that didn't make it on to your snack board or a can of chickpeas and let everything marinate overnight. Add the arugula just before serving so it doesn't wilt.

Blackberry Quinoa Kale Salad with Lemon Vinaigrette by @dianemorrisey

Make a double batch of vinaigrette to dress up this hearty quinoa kale salad. Blackberries add a pop of sweetness, while avocado adds richness for a perfectly balanced bite. This salad is bright, sweet, crunchy and filling! 
Charred Radicchio Salad with Fennel and Yogurt Dressing by @stacy_adimando

You’ve seen grilled romaine, but what about grilled radicchio? When charred, this pungent Italian vegetable becomes mellow. Try the sweet and citrusy yogurt dressing with all types of grilled veggies.
Lentil Soppy Joes with Creamy Cabbage Slaw by @wholebeetkitchen

No grill? No problem. Topped with a creamy crunchy cabbage slaw, these tangy vegan lentil sloppy joes are a nostalgic veggie sandwich the whole family will love! 
Portobello Mushroom Steaks with Cucumber Radish Salad by @lindsayeatsla

Mushrooms absorb tons of flavor when seasoned. These "steaks" are quickly marinated with coconut milk, coconut aminos, hot sauce, vinegar and chili flakes, then grilled until charred and crispy. Grill-less? Prepare these in a heavy skillet or grill pan.
Reverse Sear Strip Steak Seasonal Salad 
by @Mollyjean4

"If you are new to the art of the reverse sear, welcome! The principle behind using a reverse sear is to cook the meat low and slow until it gets almost up to your preferred temperature. Once you hit right below your desired final temperature, you remove the meat from the oven and sear it over a screaming hot pan (or grill) to develop a golden-brown crust. You can use this technique with any cut of steak over 1 ½ inches thick" - Molly, Feedfeed Senior Food Editor
Beef Skewers with Garlic Bourbon Sauce by @peaches2peachesblog

The garlic bourbon sauce will be your new go-to steak sauce. Soy sauce, brown sugar, tomato paste, garlic, onion, cilantro and bourbon are simmered until thickened, then brushed over beef and portobello mushroom skewers!
Preserved Lemon Skewers by @thedaleyplate

This is a 5-ingredient or less recipe! Chicken thighs are cut into bit sized pieces, marinated with preserved lemon, paprika, salt and then grilled! Serve these up with an herbaceous aioli and fresh lemon wedges. 
Salmon And Avocado Mango Salsa Burgers by @spicesinmydna

Salmon holds up well to so many flavor profiles, and this combo with creamy avocado and sweet mango is a winner! Make and shape the salmon burgers one night before that way all you have to do is grill, make the salsa and it's done! Entertaining can be THAT easy. 
Honey-Harissa Grilled Shrimp with Herby Cucumber Salad by @lisathompson

These shrimp are lightly coated in honey before grilling to develop color and a bit of char. The shrimp are then tossed escabeche style in zesty harissa marinade that is nothing short of addictive. 
Cheeseburgers With Jalapeño Sauce And Sweet Potato Fries by @anna_s_table

PSA: If you plan on making burgers this weekend, slather them in Anna's sweet and spicy jalapeño sauce. 

Something Sweet
Vanilla Layered Berry Cake by @dreamybaker

This moist vanilla cake screams summer! Made with a classic cream cheese frosting, a sweet lemony berry jam, and piles of fresh berries, save this for upcoming summer celebrations! Use the back of a spoon to create beautiful swirls and swooshes then pile on the berries for a beautiful and effortlessly decorated cake. 
Strawberry Rhubarb Galette by @ira_zlatev

If you've never made a galette before, now is your chance! These rustic free-form pies require less time in the oven than traditional pies and minimal clean up. The pie dough can be made up to two days in advance. We like to serve warm slices directly from the sheet pan with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. 
Mascarpone Tart with Pretzel Graham Crust by @ritzymomblog

A salty pretzel-graham crust is filled with luscious mascarpone cream and fresh berries to satisfy your sweet-and-salty cravings. AND! You don't even have to turn on your oven! That's a win. 
Strawberry Lavender Prosecco Popsicles by @olivesnthyme

Nothing says summer like ice pops! Prep these boozy strawberry pops before the weekend to have a cold treat at the ready all weekend long!
Something Stronger
Blackberry Gin Smash by @thefeedfeed.com

If you’re all about fruity, refreshing cocktails, then this Blackberry Basil Gin Smash is all you! Made with gin, a zippy ginger-basil syrup, elderflower liqueur, and freshly muddled blackberries, it’s got spirit, sweetness, and a gorgeous purple hue. 
Frozen Italian Paloma Pitcher by @join_jules

Pitcher-style drinks are the way to go! This frozen Paloma is made with Campari, tequila and three kinds of citrus.

Dark Horse | Umami Ketchup 

Umami ketchup is a mix of traditional Japanese ingredients and modern American cuisine. This style of cuisine is called Yoshoku. Dark Horse Organic removes all of the heavily processed foods that are usually found in ketchup and replaced them with miso, tamari, and wildflower honey. A robust and umami filled sauce that has a more three-dimensional full-bodied flavor.
