Healthy Memorial Day Grilling Menu

Barbecued Chicken

Memorial Day weekend is a great time to get together with friends and family. This year, on this first unofficial weekend of summer, get outside, fire up the grill, and serve your guests a delicious and nutritious menu featuring barbecued chicken, grilled corn, and a delightful tomato salad, finished off with a peachy angel food cake for dessert.

Barbecued Chicken
My husband is a diabetic, so I'm always looking for great-tasting recipes that are low in sugar and carbohydrates. To reduce the sugar content of this Barbecued Chicken recipe even further, I use diet cola.

Chilled Tomato Salad
I use my fresh garden veggies to make this special summer Chilled Tomato Salad. It's popular at Fourth of July picnics.

Sweet 'n' Spicy Roasted Corn
My husband came up with the sweet and spicy glaze. Sweet 'n' Spicy Roasted Corn tastes really good, looks beautiful with the flecks of red pepper and requires much less butter than folks generally use.
—Erin Littlefield, Bryan, Texas

Peach Angel Dessert
This light and lovely Peach Angel Dessert is absolutely heavenly! Try this with fresh strawberries, raspberries or blueberries, too, using the corresponding flavor of gelatin. It's delicious with any of them.
—Marge Hubrich, St. Cloud, Minnesota
