Memorial Day weekend, for most people, signifies the unofficial start of summer (unless of course you live in Phoenix where we’ve already had 14 days of temperatures in the 100’s) and involves some sort of outdoor food event.
Whether it’s a pool party with hot dogs and hamburgers; a day at the beach with a picnic lunch or a backyard BBQ with ribs and coleslaw; people everywhere will be spending some time outside this weekend eating.
So what do you bring to one of these events?
My go-to outdoor event dish is fresh fruit with dip. Simple I know, but it’s so delicious and somewhat good for you.
All you do is mix 1 block of cream cheese (8 ounces) with one jar of marshmallow fluff. Add 2 tablespoons of orange juice and stir until creamy. Cut your favorite fruit into bite size pieces and you’re done.
The fruit’s all cut; the dip's in the bowl…Now bring on the weekend!
