These Are The BEST Labor Day Recipes On Pinterest

Labor Day, for many of us, equals summertime sadness. Our favorite sunny season is finally coming to an end, and it's time to put our swimsuits and sandals away — and kiss those Summer Fridays goodbye. But instead of sulking and dreading the day as it looms, why not just do it up big with an LD food bonanza?

Think of September 5 as the last hurrah for all the best summer eats. You could call it the cookout to end all cookouts. Whatever your favorite foods of the summer may have been, now's the time to pay them some serious homage. And if you need a little help with party planning, we asked Pinterest to round up the top summertime recipes for your last hurrah. It's not goodbye; it's just "see you next season."
