A Pool party menu is easy to put together if you find the right recipes but never fear because we’ve got some delightful Pool party recipe ideas for you right here.
Pool gatherings are notable for swimming pools, however, we like a smorgasbord. Set out an organic platter load with pineapple, melon, oranges, strawberries, lemon, banana, and coconut. A dish of sugar coated dates can be very delicious if done appropriately for the children. You can likewise serve the kids some grilled shrimp or different sorts of barbecued fish taking after the watery subject of your occasion. Try an invigorating tropical smoothie or a harder smoothie for the grown-ups.
Find below the recipes that will make your experience at the poolside extraordinary:
- Adana Kebabs (Ground Lamb/Beef Kebabs)
These traditional Turkish kebabs are traditionally made with juicy lamb but I prefer ground beef that’s molded around flat metal skewers and grilled over live coals. The grilled meat is typically served as a platter with rice and salad or inside a tightly rolled wrap made with Turkish lavash, along with a red onion and parsley salad seasoned with sumac. Before rolling up the bread, the grilled meat is sprinkled with a mixture of cumin, sumac, salt, and roasted chilies.
- Island Swim Dessert
This awesome summer treat is not only fun to make but fun to eat as well. Decorate the cookies to look like your swimming suit or the colors of your party. Eating some of the decorations is fun, too.
- Pineapple Colada Shake
With refreshing coconut and pineapple flavors, this frothy shake is sinfully delicious! With its hint of cinnamon and creamy texture, it just begs to be your poolside companion.
- Barbecued Chicken Pizzas
So fast and so easy with refrigerated pizza crust, these saucy, smoky pizzas make quick fans with their hot-off-the-grill, rustic flavor. They’re perfect for spur-of-the-moment cookouts and summer dinners on the patio.
- Pool Party Cake
This cleverly decorated cake with its “pool” of cool blue gelatin will steal the show at any gathering! We dipped into our imaginations to come up with the whimsical party cake that doubles as an eye-catching centerpiece.
- Tropical Guacamole
Fresh pineapple stars in this fruity guacamole that sure hits the spot! Both kids and adults have enjoyed it as a poolside snack or as a satisfying appetizer at a summer barbecue.
- Sunny Orange Lemonade
Here’s a beverage that’ll really hit the spot. Filled with tangy goodness, it’ll quench your thirst any time of year. I like to use tree-ripened lemons and oranges that are so abundant at your local farmer’s market.
- Sunny Strawberry & Cantaloupe Salad
My little ones absolutely love this salad and ask me to make it all the time. Fruit and cheese taste delish together and the kids like to bite into the crunchy sunflower seeds.
- BBQ Hot Dog & Potato Packs
For these nifty foil packs, small hands make quick work of topping potato wedges with a hot dog, onions, and cheese.
- The Food Lab’s Perfect Grilled Steaks
The ribeye comes with a large, tender eye of meat surrounded by a swath of fat and a cap that comes from the spinal muscle. This cap is far and away the juiciest, most flavorful piece of meat that you’ll find on any steak, and this is the best way to grill it (if you’re working with other cuts of steak, just jump over to our complete guide to grilling steak).
