Memorial Day Recipes

Memorial Day is kind of like a premiere party for grilling season. Which for many of us means the kick-off of the what-are-we-going-to-grill-today-season. I don’t know if you’re like The One and me, but for years, every May we started off bubbling with hope while we wrastled with all kinds of complicated rubs, bewitching (read: expensive) marinades, and incomprehensible injectors and vacuum sealers. As summer wore on, our patience wore thin in equal measure. Eventually we were throwing steaks, chicken, and, the bane of every outdoor cook, zucchini and summer squash on the grill just to get dinner on the table.

That’s why this year we wanted to give you a dozen recipes that are so easy, so incredibly flavorful, you’ll be grilling them right up until the waning hours of Labor Day Monday. Now let’s get one thing straight: this isn’t a menu. (We know you can put a fierce one together on your own.) We just wanted to offer a little inspiration from every angle—main dishes of beef, pork, chicken; sides of bread and salads; and desserts, natch. With any of these at the center of your picnic table, just add cocktails, salads, more desserts, and a few friends, and you’ve got yourself a killer holiday. Happy, happy.—David Leite
