Labor Day: Southern-Style Menu
A Southern-style menu for the grill puts a tasty spin on your Labor Day menu.
Southern food is more than barbecue and fried chicken. And since you can grill out earlier and later in the year below the Mason-Dixon line, folks tend to get really creative with their outdoor cooking, tossing all manner of meats, fish and vegetables on the grill.
To honor summer's last song this Labor Day, here is a menu that offers something different, yet still familiar.
Corn gets gussied up with chipotle butter, biscuits with fresh rosemary, asparagus bundles with salty prosciutto, catfish with pesto and for a sweet finish, grilled mango over ice cream. If you’re tired of burgers and dogs, strike up the grill for a menu that’s just a little bit of country.
