It’s BBQ season and that means long, leisurely parties outdoors! Instead of worrying if the deviled eggs are going bad or the creepy potato salad has been sitting out too long in the sun, why not try a few mayo-free party favorites? Today’s recipe has a Mexican twist with fresh, clean flavors of lime, cilantro and garlic.

Not a fan of cilantro? Try a few of my other tasty BBQ dishes:

Make these for your next BBQ – your friends will thank you and so will their waistline.

Your fork is waiting.
