Red, White, and Phyllo Flavor: Memorial Day Recipes You’ll Love

Your backyard party just got better. Discover crispy, golden phyllo — a delicious addition to your Memorial Day spread. It’s fun to work with, picnic portable, and easy to infuse with tons of flavor. Here are five recipes that will look so sensational your guests can’t help but want to try them … and then go back for seconds.


Athens Red White Blue Cannoli Sliders

RED, WHITE AND BLUE CANNOLI SLIDERS

These festive fruit tarts couldn’t be simpler. Combine ricotta cheese, powdered sugar, and ripe berries to create a bite-sized snack that’s big on taste and low in fat.

LOBSTER ROLL BITES

Make a little bit of lobster stretch a long way. These tasty appetizers have all the hallmarks of their Nantucket cousins, but with built in portion control. To feed a crowd on a budget, replace the lobster with diced shrimp or canned tuna.

HERBED RICOTTA & ASPARAGUS

Backyard parties tend to be short on green vegetables (no, the mayo-drenched cabbage in your coleslaw doesn’t count). For a beautiful dish that’s easy to prepare, try this vibrant asparagus tart. The tender green stalks really shine here, and the herbed ricotta adds an earthy punch.

Athens Chorizo Triangles

CHORIZO PHYLLO TRIANGLES

Hot dogs are a picnic classic. Chorizo triangles are a picnic showstopper. These crowd-pleasing triangles combine spicy pork sausage with flaky phyllo to create an incredible, Spanish-style appetizer. Make a double batch, because these tasty bites won’t last long.
