They say that Memorial Day is the official start to summer and considering today it is 85 degrees in Rhode Island, I suppose it is true.

As with millions of other Americans, you will be going to or hosting some sort of BBQ or cookout. With that in mind, I thought I would share some great side dish recipes.

Mandarin Orange & Roasted Red Pepper Bowtie Pasta Salad Recipe with Lemon Honey Vinaigrette is a light and refreshing change from typical heavy pasta

Guaranteed to be swooned over for its’ originality (and a favorite of Koupon Karen!): The Wheat Berry Apple Salad in a Jar

Looking for a recipe to use up some canned beans? Try this Vegetarian Chickpea Salad Recipe!

Happy Memorial Day!
