It’s Memorial Day. The last Monday in May is set aside in the U.S. to honor the men and women who have died while serving in the Armed Forces.
But it’s also considered the unofficial start-date for picnics, neighborhood potlucks and backyard barbecues.
We’re taking the day off and because the Food Safety News team is spread out across the country, we’re having our third annual “virtual potluck” for our Memorial Day celebration.
Dan and Helena are bringing the main dishes — Slow-Cooked Barbecue Pork Sandwiches and Mussels in Wine. James and Cookson are offering salads — Barley-Is-Boss Salad and Tortellini Pasta Salad. Mary is bringing a side dish — Roasted Cauliflower with Tahini Sauce. Suzanne is contributing her Rhubarb Crumble for dessert.
We’re sharing our recipes here, so you can join in our virtual potluck or use them at your next one.
Have a food safe Memorial Day celebration!
The Food Safety News team.
