If you’re still thinking about what to make for Memorial Day, don’t stress – I’ve got you covered!  In this week’s post, you’ll find my top 3 side dishes (Italian of course!) that are easy, simple and quick.

Whether you are bringing a dish to someone’s cookout or hosting it yourself, here are three cool Italian side dishes that are proven successful for any party, meal, or get-together.

My top 3 favs are:

1.  Italian Antipasto Salad


This recipe requires no cooking and is super flexible!   All you have to do it pour the ingredients from the jar into a bowl, mix with olive oil and you’ve got a winner!

2.  Italian Peppers, Onions and sausage recipe

This requires cooking, but is still super easy.  Goes great for a cookout!  It is a family recipe that has always been a reliable dish.

3.  Italian Chickpea Salad

Veggie and vegan friends will love you for this recipe!  One of my favorites.  The instructions are literally two steps (mix everything together then store in fridge until ready).   No cooking required and easy to adjust for large or small quantities!

Special Thanks

Memorial day is a special weekend as we remember the brave men and women who gave their lives by serving in our military to protect the freedoms we cherish in our country.   Remember to say thanks to those who continue to serve.

If you have served or are serving currently, I’d like to personally say THANK YOU and may God Bless you and the USA.
