BBQ-Sleepover Part 2

Here are a couple more recipes to try if you’re throwing a summer party: pasta salad and mango salsa (although it does go great with chips, most of us were eating it as a salad, it’s so tasty on its own).

Pasta Salad

  • one red pepper, diced
  • one green pepper, diced
  • 450 grams penne pasta, cooked and drained
  • one bag of Hellmans ancho chipotle sauce

Toss everything together!


Mango Salsa

  • 4 mangoes, diced
  • 1 mango, pureed
  • half a red onion, diced
  • one lime, zested and juiced
  • mint leaves, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon of honey (or to taste)
Toss everything together and add mint leaves to taste.  Serve with your favourite tortilla chips.

The next day we had breakfast on the patio because it was such a gorgeous morning.  We BBQ’d our breakfast and had sausages and bacon.  Just be careful when you do this and have a spray bottle with water nearby because the fat WILL make the flames shoot up, and the flames had to be doused every so often so our breakfast didn’t burn.  The bacon and sausages definitely tasted better grilled on the BBQ rather than cooked on the stove top.  Take advantage of summer weather and get out there and use your grill!
