With Memorial Day coming up, millions of people all over the United States are going to spend the final afternoon of their three-day weekend at a cookout or party somewhere, but if you are the one hosting that party you may need more than grilled meats to please your guests. Long before the main course is consumed partygoers are going to want something to snack on. Here at Deli Direct, we offer plenty of excellent options for entertaining people on Memorial Day, including the following:
Meat and Cheese Platters
There are few party foods as tried and true as a good platter featuring a mix of Wisconsin cheese and sliced summer sausage, perhaps served with some crackers. Guests will nibble at this all afternoon, so keep your platter stocked with the best meats and cheeses available here at Deli Direct and they’ll stay well-fed.
Corn Chips with Blazzin’ Buffalo Dip
Who doesn’t love a good Buffalo sauce? This low-carb, gluten-free dip offers the familiar tang of Buffalo Wings, but in dip form. While you could put out a number of different dippable crunchy foods to accompany it, we find that corn chips (which also are gluten-free, by the way) are an excellent pairing.
Pita Chips with New England Lobster Dip
If you want to make your party look extra classy, consider putting together this New England Lobster dip, which goes great with everything from crackers to vegetables. Pita chips are especially good with this dip, however, as they are heavy enough and large enough to deliver a big scoop of this great dip to your guests’ taste buds.
Potato Chips with Loaded Baked Potato Dip
Everybody loves a good loaded baked potato, and you can recreate that flavor by building a platter with plain potato chips that can stack with loaded baked potato dip. Sour cream and chives are the base flavor, but you can add bacon bits and cheese to really create a delicious dip for your partygoers.
Vegetable Platter with Western Ranch Dip
If you’ve ever bought a veggie platter at the grocery store, you know they can be pretty expensive, so instead, opt for our Western Ranch dip and buy a few heads of broccoli and bags of baby carrots to come up with a more budget-conscious version of this party favorite.
Fruit Platter with Heaven Sake Cheesecake Dip
Fruit is another healthy option for your party, but if you’d like to offer that fruit with a delicious dip, consider our Heaven Sake Cheesecake dip. It is rich and creamy and complements the tangy sweetness of pineapple, strawberries, and grapes, among many other common fruit platter choices.
These Memorial Day entertaining options will ensure that your party is, at the very least, an incredibly delicious affair. Order these items from Deli Direct with enough time to prep for these gatherings, and enjoy your three-day weekend with foods guaranteed to tickle the taste buds of your guests.
