Meal Ideas for Outdoor BBQs and Picnics

Summer is just around the corner, and that means outdoor BBQs and picnics! It's the perfect time to gather with family and friends and enjoy some delicious food in the great outdoors. But what to cook? Here are some meal ideas that will make your outdoor gathering a success:

1: Grilled veggies

Get your grill hot and throw on some fresh veggies like zucchini, bell peppers, onions, and mushrooms. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Cover with a Duo Cover® to help them cook faster and retain their moisture. They'll be the perfect side dish to any BBQ meal.

2: BBQ chicken

You can't have a BBQ without chicken! Marinate some chicken breasts in your favorite BBQ sauce and grill them up. Cover them with a UniLid® to keep them moist and juicy. Serve them up with some fresh veggies and a side of potato salad.

4: Pasta salad

A pasta salad is a great addition to any picnic. Cook up some pasta and mix it with fresh veggies, like cherry tomatoes, cucumbers, and olives. Toss it with some Italian dressing and sprinkle with feta cheese. Store it in a ZipBag® for easy transportation and cleanup.

Refreshing and easy to make, a watermelon salad is the perfect addition to any outdoor gathering. Cube some watermelon and toss it with some mint leaves and feta cheese. Drizzle with balsamic glaze and serve. Use a Swedish Dishcloth to clean up any sticky watermelon juice.

With these meal ideas, your outdoor gathering will be a hit! And with Two Pillars' eco-friendly products like Duo Cover®, UniLid®, ZipBag®, and Swedish Dishcloth, you can be sure that your kitchen and picnic supplies are not only functional but also environmentally conscious. Happy BBQ-ing!
