- Apricot Greek Yogurt Chicken Thighs
Found from Reluctant Entertainer
These sound just heavenly! I think this may be my new recipe of the month to try! The crunch of the skin combined with the sweet creaminess…omgah.
2. Firecracker Grilled Salmon
Found from Taste of Home
These sound fabulous! Healthy for you too! Not something one would typically see at a cookout but still looks wonderful. Surprise your guests with something unexpected and still yummy this holiday.
3. Bacon Macaroni Salad
Found from Taste of Home
Everyone loves a good BLT!! Why not make it into a salad? There is crisp bacon along with tomato and some other crunchy veggies in this outside the box noodle salad that is sure to be a hit.
4. 50 Stars Barbecue Chicken Legs
Found from In Honor of Design
I’m drooling on my laptop. These are the picture of perfection!
5. Cheerwine Baby Back Ribs
Found from Country Living
First time I heard you could add soda to ribs to help it cook and tenderize as well as help with flavor, I thought we were a nation of very unhealthy eating. BUT…let me tell you, it does help! lol. So I can’t wait to try this recipe!
6. Parmesan Garlic Grilled Corn
Found from Tara’s Multicultural Table
I love some corn! This just looks heavenly to me. Pair it with some meat that’s been grilled and you have a recipe for a meal that hits the spot.
7. Chipotle Burgers with Creamy Avocado Sauce
Found from Mexican Please
I’m not a huge fan of spicy food, which anyone who knows me personally will tell you lol. But seeing as a ton of my friends do, this one had to make the list! I cant wait to make the Creamy Avocado sauce!
8. Bacon Ranch Grilled Potatoes
Found from Gather for Bread
I want these for dinner! Look so good. Sounds like a baked potato.
9. Cajun Style Foil-Packets
Found from The Best Blog Recipes
Another spicy recipe for my friends! This one doesn’t even need to have spice for people like me. But it looks sooooo good!
10. Balsamic Garlic Grilled Mushrooms

I love a good wonderfully cooked mushroom. I can’t wait to try this on the grill next time we cook out!
