Our Recipe for an Easy, Delicious Summer BBQ

Posted on July 13, 2018   |   by   |   Job Seekers, Well Being

It’s summer, and there’s nothing better than getting together with your Advanced Practice colleagues, friends and family for a fabulous backyard BBQ. If you want a quick, easy, and delicious menu, we have you covered!

Like you, the Melnic team loves to cook, celebrate, and eat well. We’re sharing our best recipes to make your next get together a first-rate fiesta!



Peach Iced Tea

Dodie, Marketing Specialist – “It gets hot in Austin, where I live. Fortunately, making peach tea couldn’t be simpler. Just throw a bag of this awesome Peach Flavored Iced Tea from Texas in a gallon jar and leave it out in the sun.”

Mango Margaritas

Christina, Recruitment Manager – “A Mango Margarita on the Rocks is my favorite summertime drink. We all need to reward ourselves now and then! To make it special, I garnish the glass with a little salt and a slice of fresh mango.”



Jill, President & CEO – “In the summer, I love making Gazpacho. I think it’s so fun to use fresh vegetables from a local farmer’s market. I prefer to keep them chopped over using a blender.”

Main Course

Barbacoa Beef Tacos

Liz, Digital Marketing Specialist – “My friends and I love to keep it simple when we get together. That’s why we make Slow Cooker Barbacoa Beef Tacos served with flour tortillas and queso fresco.”

Side Dishes

Red Pepper Coleslaw

Sharla, Candidate Manager – “I’m addicted to this Red Pepper Coleslaw Salad from Kona Grill. I actually talked to the chef, and they use white cheddar, not Gorgonzola…and it’s important to use Napa cabbage. So delish!!!”

Black Bean Salad

Audrey, Talent Associate – “Our favorite summer recipe right now is a Fresh Black Bean Salad. It’s also great for a quick, healthy lunch all on its own.”


Zucchini Chocolate Cake

Britt, Marketing Specialist – I have a garden for the first time this year and have more zucchini than I know what to do with. Hands down, this Rich and Moist Zucchini Cake is the best way to eat them!
