Recipes For A Chic Cookout

With the arrival of the unofficial start of Summer on Memorial Day weekend, it is time to take our dining outside. I'm hoping that Mother Nature cooperates this weekend for all of us. I understand that we all can't have Chinoiserie tents on our patios or at our beach bash. But we can add a dose of chic to whatever we do. All it takes is a little imagination and one or two extra steps. This edit features recipes and cooks tools that are casual and chic, too.  

Le Creuset Wedding 468x60

The Perfect Patron Margarita
I always love beginning with a cocktail. Margaritas are usually a sure bet. They get the party started. Even when made outdoors, make sure your bar area is attractive and appetizing like this set up. Cheers!

Grilled Cornbread With Jalapeno Honey Butter
This looks like buttery heaven! I would have never thought to do this. The recipe begins with homemade cornbread and ends with a sweet and spicy kick.

Lemon And Oregano Grilled Chicken
Selected because of that little grilled lemon. Have you everhad one? I have fond memories of my Dad taking the lemon slices out of his homemade barbecue sauce and grilling them just for he and I. The magic to this dish is marinating it before grilling.

Balsamic Strawberry Tiramisu-No Bake!
I cook with balsamic frequently. It elevates almost everything. Adding it to strawberries is something I have not tired. This recipe is light and fairly quick to assemble. Your guests will think it rather fancy pants, when it is not.

Simple Italian Grilled Romaine Salad
Lighten up that Caesar Salad for Summer. This lettuce with its' charred edges transforms salads from sad to sizzling. 

Strawberry, Bacon and Brie Chicken Burgers
If you want to serve a burger at a chic cookout, make it unique. These are moist and delicious, but with the fraction of the fat and calories of a beef burger. How fab!

Rosé Slushy Recipe
If your motto this Summer is "Rosé All Day," this recipe is for you. It's strawberry season, too, so there just couldn't be a better alfresco aperitif.

Marinated Grilled Flank Steak With Toppings
This just looks like a party waiting to happen. I had grilled Flank Steak for the first time a month ago. It was perfectly prepared by my nephew in-law. Loved it to the moon and back!
This recipe looks equally as good.

Mini Lobster Rolls
The perfect passed appetizer for any chic cookout. This recipe is particularly unique as it has a slight Japanese flair. Also the mayo called for is Kewpie Mayo. Mr. Shop This just informed me that this brand was named the best by The New York Times. I say yes, please to this recipe!

Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Cooking with a Salt Plate (and More!)
I have been interested in these salt plates for a long time. Firstly, I just love how they look, but they can cook and present, too. This article gives us all the low down. Its very interesting. I think they will make an unusual host gift.

Marinated Mozzarella Melon Salad
This recipe is an interesting mix of sweet and savory, which is always good. Consider it your fruit salad's sophisticated sister.

Champagne Popsicles
Dessert for grownups. Yes, please! Aren't these pretty? Champagne adds the chic to any event.

Tuna Burgers Pan Bagnat
"Here’s a play on a classic pan bagnat—a French baguette sandwich loaded with tuna, anchovies, olives and hard-boiled eggs. Serve with French fries or your favorite chips."  Oh man!

Grilled Sweet Potatoes with Cilantro Cream and Quick Chimichurri
 Chimichurri instantly brightens every dish. This recipe is the perfect seasonal side dish for your next barbecue. I can't wait to try it.

Sur La Table King Scallop Grilling Shells

Grilled Artichokes With Polenta, Tomatoes & Pesto
Now this is an appealing dish. A great way to go Italian while cooking out.
