Recipes for Memorial Day Weekend

Is it Memorial Day weekend yet? This whole week we've been gearing up to the three-day weekend (see this menu) and official start of outdoor grilling season (10 must-read tips here). Here's a mess of recipes we'd happily chow on with friends around a grill, on a rooftop, at a park, or wherever. Everything from sweet potato chips to burgers and skewer-able meats to roasted potato salad, and of course a cold basil lemonade to gulp down.
