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:
Throw them on the grill, or make them in your oven. With a 12-minute cooking time, you can’t go wrong.
Do you prefer meat? Make these instead. Like both? Make both!
What’s a barbecue or picnic without a nice cold pasta salad?
Prefer potatoes to pasta? This one’s for you.
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.
Grilling chicken? Throw it on a salad.
Need a good marinade for your grilled chicken or meat? Make this delightful sauce.
Grilling indoors? No problem!
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.
Bonfires = s’mores. But with this recipe you can elevate the s’more into a truly decadent and impressive ice cream sandwich . . .
Lag BaOmer represents the importance of ahavat yisrael, and these heart-shaped beauties are the prefect themed reminder.
Happy Lag BaOmer!
