Good Morning to all my quilting friends. My son is turning 28 this coming up weekend and I am hosting a BBQ for him. But I am very tired of the same old potatoe salad, pea salad, cole slaw stuff. I was hoping that with so many wonderful friends here from all over the world that maybe you all could give me some new fresh ideas. I would really appreciate it if someone would share a recipe with me that is a tried and true sucess for a get together. Thank you all in advance.

Marinated Veggie Salad .... chop up assorted fresh veggies and add some italian dressing (or other dressing as you choose). Stir and let marinade.

If you want to add some protein to that ... add some chick peas to the mix, or top with crumbled feta when ready to serve.

We made these grilled chicken thighs Tandoori yesterday. They were delicious. You marinade the thighs in a yogurt sauce for a few hours and throw them on the BBQ.

AnneVC's Lemon Blueberry Chicken Salad was delicious when I made it. Best to make ahead to let the flavours meld.

There's several other recipes on that thread you might like too!

grilled ceasar salad. Cut Romaine lettuce, lengthwise, into quarters. It holds together because of the core. Then grill, cut side down til browned, remove from grill,drizzle with Caesar salad dressing (I make my own, a bit of dijon mustard, apple cider vinegar, garlic clove, a squeeze of anchovy paste, salt, pepper, fresh parsley, olive oil beaten together). Sounds weird but so far, everyone I've made it for has raved.
