Do you want to know how to plan a simple meatless Memorial Day meal and support military families at the same time? — Then keep reading!
Grilling season has officially begun and I convinced Germaine to try one of my favorite meatless meals! In place of beef burgers, I asked him to grill up Gardein® Ultimate Plant-Based Burgers that I topped with a super simple Dill Pickle Coleslaw flavored with Vlasic® Dill Pickle Spears and Gulden’s® Spicy Brown Mustard. Dessert was simply fresh fruit with Reddi-wip® Whipped Topping.
This four-ingredient slaw is made by mixing four ounces of bagged slaw, four Vlasic Dill Pickle Spears (diced), one tablespoon of Gulden’s Spicy Brown Mustard, and one tablespoon of ranch salad dressing in a bowl. The Gulden’s Spicy Brown Mustard is made with number-one grade mustard seeds that add a spicy kick to the slaw while the Vlasic’s secret pickling recipe delivers classic dill taste.
I added in the sweet ranch dressing just to balance out the two flavors and give the slaw a creamy texture. This slaw piled on top of the juicy, 1/4-pound, Gardein Ultimate Plant-Based patties is so good. If you want to forego the bun, you can swap it for two large pieces of crisp lettuce instead.
Either way, this is a low-effort option for weekend grilling and perfect for a meatless Memorial Day. I served in the Army so Memorial Day holds extra special meaning for me and my husband really likes to honor that. On Memorial Day I get to kick my feet up, choose our meal while he makes it. I don’t eat beef burgers so Gardein Ultimate Plant-Based Burgers will definitely be on our Memorial Day menu.
Most of the pantry staples I order from Walmart for Memorial Day are from Conagra. Conagra has a full line of products for grilling, but I also choose them because of their support of Operation Homefront. They’re making a donation to Operation Homefront to support military families and that means a lot to me being a veteran. Sometimes transitioning back to civilian life can be difficult, but Operation Homefront helps. Their mission is to “build strong, stable, and secure military families so they can thrive in the communities that they’ve worked so hard to protect”.
Families just like mine!
Knowing that inspires me to include Conagra products in my meal planning even more. Placing my order at Walmart.com for delivery is always quick and easy. I placed an order on Friday evening and everything was at our doorstep by Saturday afternoon.
