The long weekend is approaching, which means all we can think about is our grill menu! And since Labor Day should be about taking a step back from work, we thought we’d do the prep for you and share our essential cookout recipes. From brats and burgers to salads and sides, we have a little something to delight everyone's taste buds.

Hearty enough to be a vegetarian main course, this salad is also a refreshing side to burger eaters. If you remove the cheese, it becomes vegan friendly too!

This unique recipe puts a twist on the traditional hotdog to delight your tastebuds! Blueberry and corn salsa will be a surprising addition that nobody will see coming!

We know in the summer your grill may be put to good use and grilled veggie sides can start to feel the same. Not this asparagus though! Topped with toasted hazelnuts, dijon, and strawberries, this recipe will send a “spear” through your flavor loving heart. This is also a great vegetarian and vegan option.
