There is nothing better than homemade barbecue sauce. This delicious sauce uses ground pecans to add a great flavor and texture that is perfect for brisket, ribs, or burgers. There is nothing this sauce doesn’t taste great on, so make sure to give it a try this Memorial Day.
Grilled salmon is one of our favorite dishes, but topped with barbecue sauce and crunchy pecans and it takes it to a whole other level. You can make this recipe on the grill or in the oven, whichever is easiest. However, not matter how you make it, your guests will love it!
Cole slaw is one of those standard barbecue dishes that people either love or hate. To ensure that everyone loves yours, we recommend upping your game with this shaved cabbage salad. It uses a blend of fresh shaved cabbage, spiced pecans, and sharp feta to keep the slaw light. This recipe is less a cole slaw and more a gourmet experience.
Another traditional side dish served at a barbecue is pasta salad. Rather than just grabbing a tub at your local deli counter, consider making this easy and delicious pasta salad. A mix of your favorite shaped pasta, pecans, grapes, and bacon, there’s nothing to not love in this great salad. So skip the counter and make this easy recipe your guests will love.
Dessert is often overlooked at barbecues, but once you try this grilled peaches, it will always be a featured favorite. Simply grill the peaches, top with your favorite candied pecans, and top with your favorite ice cream. Easy, delicious, and a perfect recipe for pecan lovers!
