May is national barbecue month and national salad month. The warmer weather and sunshine bring us outdoors for grilling and barbecuing, along with eating a little bit lighter foods like salad, fruit and vegetables. May is the perfect time to get outdoors and start grilling up foods like steak, hamburgers, hot dogs, ribs and chicken, along with vegetables like potatoes, corn on the cob and kebabs of mushrooms, tomatoes, onions and peppers. Add a little barbecue sauce to your chosen meat to add some flavor and spice. Barbecue pork sandwiches are another great option to make during this time of year. Keep your recipes light and simple but with lots of flavor to enhance the taste of your meal. DeFazio’s offers complete dinners in Richmond, VA, as well as catering service and box lunches for any occasion.
You can make a salad as a side or as a meal in and of itself. Make a light and delicious spring salad with some fruit, lettuce, nuts and raspberry dressing. Add some diced chicken and pile on ingredients like fruits, vegetables, cheese and nuts to make a meal out of a salad. There’s no wrong way to make a salad, just add the good stuff you like and top with a creamy dressing for a healthy and light meal or snack.
