We’re just wrapping up our long weekend celebrating Labor day at California and It’s hard to believe the summer is over!
If you haven’t already thrown a barbecue with your friends and family, chances are that you’re already close to the end of the long holiday! Considering this as the final hurrah for your summer, here are a few dishes to experience the beautiful flavors and richness of those summer foods –one last time!
Salad: Cucumber & Black Eyed Pea Salad
If you’re looking for the perfect last-minute cookout, this recipe of Cucumber & Black-Eyed Pea Salad will more than suffice. Dress the salad on a bed of greens, grilled chicken or steak; it’s easily one of the best salads!
Sides: Grilled Eggplant Dip
A healthier and lighter take on baba ganoush, this recipe puts Mayo to shame! The smoky flavor of the eggplant and the fresh take of herbs and lemon makes this an irresistible dip!
Dessert: Strawberry Cupcakes with Chocolate Ganache Frosting
*Drum rolls* A sweet surprise with every bite! This is our final way of saying goodbye to the summer with these moist whole-wheat yellow cupcakes and fresh strawberries.
It’s been a great run, summer!
