A Chef's Guide to a Memorial Day Barbecue

Recently, Lettuce Entertain You asked me to create a guide for the perfect Memorial Day barbecue for their newsletter. I came up with a delicious, low-stress menu that starts with a refreshing Watermelon Martini and ends with our Strawberry Rhubarb Pie, and also included some pointers to help you keep it simple and easy. I hope you can use some of these recipes and tips for your own celebration. Enjoy!
