To kick off Canada Day long weekend, we’ve decided to compile some of our favourite BBQ/picnic/entertaining recipes from the ethicalDeal staff and community. To our friends down south, Independence Day is just around the corner, and these recipes are great for that celebration as well!

We chose to put together a list that accommodates a variety of dietary preferences and restrictions, so whether you’re vegan, gluten-free, paleo, vegetarian, omivore, or entertaining any of the above, you’re sure to find something for everyone! No matter your preference, all of these recipes are delicious, so why not try something different?

Happy Canada Day!
