11 Recipes to Make for Lag BaOmer

 Email

Some of the Lag BaOmer customs involve spending time outdoors—such as lighting bonfires and playing with bows and arrows—which often leads to picnics and barbecues (especially when the weather is beautiful!).

Here are some delicious outdoorsy, barbecue-friendly recipes for you to enjoy:


Bursting-with-Flavor Healthy Chicken Kebabs

Throw them on the grill, or make them in your oven. With a 12-minute cooking time, you can’t go wrong.



Colorful Grilled Beef Kebabs

Do you prefer meat? Make these instead. Like both? Make both!



Creamy ’n’ Crunchy Pasta Salad

What’s a barbecue or picnic without a nice cold pasta salad?



Syrian Potato Salad

Prefer potatoes to pasta? This one’s for you.



Romaine Pepper Steak Salad

Looking for a lighter salad? Try this with some meat fresh off the grill. It also adds a bright pop of color to any table.



Grilled Chicken Salad

Grilling chicken? Throw it on a salad.



Homemade Peach BBQ Sauce

Need a good marinade for your grilled chicken or meat? Make this delightful sauce.



Cilantro Chicken with Lime

Grilling indoors? No problem!



Refreshing Fruit Kebabs

End off with this refreshing and fun fruit dessert. Or turn it into an activity for the kids. Set up a table with bowls of fruit and skewers and let people build their own kebabs.



S'mores Ice Cream Sandwiches

Bonfires = s’mores. But with this recipe you can elevate the s’more into a truly decadent and impressive ice cream sandwich . . .



Elegant Linzer Tarts

Lag BaOmer represents the importance of ahavat yisrael, and these heart-shaped beauties are the prefect themed reminder.



Happy Lag BaOmer!
