Labor Day signifies many things to many Americans. It’s a celebration and respite from all of the hard work we do throughout the year. It also leaves us saying bittersweet goodbyes to the summer with anticipation for the autumn months ahead. What better way to celebrate such an occasion than with delicious home-cooked food?
We have a little bit of everything in here for you today: appetizers/snacks, main dishes, drinks, and desserts.
While you wrap up your summer and take a day to rest, we hope that you enjoy these 25 Labor Day Recipes To Help You Celebrate Your Hard Work.
Tex Mex Black Bean Dip
We are going to start off our list with a few appetizers and snacks. This dip blends some savory and spicy flavors with black beans and veggies to give it some kick. We love that the fresh veggies and beans make for a healthier option for your table.
Annie's Fruit Salsa & Cinnamon Chips
While summer is on it’s way out, it’s hard to go wrong with fruit or with cinnamon chips. Plus, this quick and easy recipe is a great way to break away from traditional salsas.
Nacho Scoops Recipe
Admittedly, this recipe seems like it might take a bit of tedious effort by having to “stuff” each tortilla scoop. However, after one look at the picture and ingredients list, you might just decide that it’s worth it. This would be a great recipe for a party as it makes 12 dozen scoops (that’s 144)!
Pineapple Shrimp Spread
While the last recipe was classic in nature, this one is sure to intrigue your adventurous spirit. The combination of pineapple and shrimp sounds refreshing, doesn’t it? It’s also super easy! You can make it even more so if you “cheat” and buy the shrimp already cooked from the store. (We won’t tell.)
This recipe was originally posted as a Memorial Day recipe, but plenty of people have reused it for their Labor Day celebrations. Tortellini, grape tomatoes, and mozzarella balls make for a delicious treat on any day.
