As lovers of BBQ, we’ve got a few tips to help you master the grill. By the end of this blog, you’ll be ready to show off your skills.

Tip #1: Make sure you provide options for all diets and dietary restrictions.

Yes, even vegetarians love a good BBQ!

Traditional burgers and brats will win over the meat lovers, while Boca and veggie burgers will be perfect for your vegan and vegetarian friends. Go the extra mile and grill up some delicious veggie kebabs everyone can enjoy!

Tip #2: You’ve got the main course, but what about your sides?

You could always go the traditional route with chips and potato salad.

But if you’re looking for healthier side options, try replacing those chips with grilled corn or zucchini!

(Pro-tip: Add a sprinkle of parmesan cheese to the grilled zucchini slices. You can thank us later.)

Tip #3: For guests who want their veggies raw, protein-packed hummus is a great dip alternative to ranch dressing.

Give your hummus that extra kick by adding lemon and dill or roasted red pepper with paprika! Check out more hummus recipes here.

Tip #4: What’s a barbecue without fresh cut fruit?

(In a few short weeks, you’ll be able to buy the freshest fruit in town at My Fresh Basket!)

Tip #5: Now that you have your main course and your a la carte’s, there’s only one thing missing: Dessert!

We’ve got the perfect solution for every sweet tooth. Nice Cream! The dairy, egg and sugar free version of ice cream that still tastes delicious without all of the guilt. Check out our blog post for 4 different Nice Cream recipes here!
