If you’ve been counting down the days to the next long weekend, we’ve got good news: it’s almost here!
Whether you’re spending this weekend at the cottage, by the pool, or just plan to relax indoors, you’ll want to take advantage of your long weekend and make one (or all) of these delicious recipes.
1. Grilled romaine caesar salad
We can’t lie, just looking at this picture makes our mouths water. Grilled romaine, crispy pancetta, and grilled lemon…need we say more? Find the recipe from Vindulge here.
2. Mermaid water rum punch
This cocktail is perfect for a hot summer day! Fair warning, there is quite a bit of alcohol, so if strong drinks aren’t your thing, this may not be the best drink for you. The greenish-blue shade is so gorgeous and reminds us of summer in a glass. And the best part? It’s super easy to make a big batch! Just multiply the ingredients and serve in a glass beverage dispenser. Find the recipe from Wishes and Dishes here.
3. Three cheese peach and prosciutto pizza with basil and honey balsamic reduction
Move over pepperoni and cheese, there’s a new pizza in town! This peach and prosciutto pizza is topped with three (!!!) types of cheese and a balsamic reduction. Want an extra crispy bottom? Cook this pizza on a pizza stone. This ~might~ be the perfect summer pizza. Find the recipe from Cooking Classy here.
4. Grilled coconut and pineapple sweet chili shrimp
Shrimp with a tropical twist? Sign us up! If you love coconut, pineapple, and sweet chili sauce, you’ll love this recipe! Find the recipe from Closet Cooking here.
5. Sun-dried tomato chicken burgers
Even if you’re not eating Whole30, you have to admit, this burger looks delicious! Sun-dried tomatoes, sautéed onion, garlic and fresh oregano give these burgers a mediterranean twist. Find the recipe from Primal Gourmet here.
6. S’more bars
Is it even a long weekend if there’s no s’mores? This combination of “rich milk chocolate bar chunks, bits of graham cracker and melty, toasted gooey marshmallows baked in cookie dough with a graham cracker crust” will be the show stealer on Monday. Find the recipe from The Baking ChocolaTess here.
