The Summer Barbecue Dish You Are, Based On Your Zodiac Sign

Summer is in full swing, meaning fun summer events are, too!

One particular event we're happy to see a major return of this year? The classic summer barbecue. There's start-of-the-season grilling on Memorial Day, the classic 4th of July cookout and the grand finale of a Labor Day gathering with loved ones—not to mention all the random barbecues in between—that all give us an excuse to have some fun (and, more importantly, food) in the sun.

Speaking of food, it seems like each dish has a certain personality to it that goes beyond just actual flavor. In fact, we couldn't help but start to associate each one with a subject we can't get enough of year-round: astrology. If you've never thought about what summer barbecue dish you are based on your zodiac sign before, you're about to find out. Let's get grilling with:

Aries (March 21 – April 19): Buffalo Dip

A fire sign through and through, we had to give spicy buffalo (whether you opt for classic buffalo chicken or a plant-based alternative) dip to the ram, AKA Aries.

Gemini (May 21 – June 20): Potato Salad

Is there any dish at a barbecue more polarizing than potato salad? You either love it or hate it, which seems a lot like how someone might describe our beloved Gemini friends.

Cancer (June 21 – July 22): Condiments

Cancer is like the best friend of the zodiac, the one who's sensitive enough to tie everyone else together and force them to get along—much like the ever-so-necessary yet often overlooked condiments that add the finishing touch to everything else on your plate.

Leo (July 23 – Aug. 22): Hotdogs and Hamburgers

Did you really think that Leo could end up with any dish that's not the main event? They're the star of the show when it comes to your plate, just like our sun-ruled Leos are the star of the zodiac.

Virgo (Aug. 23 – Sep. 22): Hotdog and Hamburger Buns

What would the centerpieces be without their foundations, the beloved hotdog or hamburger bun? Virgo is steady and strong, holding the rest of the signs up just like this all-important piece of the barbecue equation.

Libra (Sep. 23 – Oct. 22): Pasta Salad

Well-balanced yet luxurious, Libra just emulates the same vibe as pasta salad. Plus, pasta salad can be customized to suit just about any palate or preference, much like our scale-symbolized Libras.

Scorpio (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21): Soda

Whether you call it pop or soda, you can now start associating it with this specific water sign. Scorpios are known for being a bit dark and moody yet secretly super sweet, much like many of the bottles of soda you're likely to find in the cooler at your next summer barbecue.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21): Corn on the Cob

Fiery and enigmatic, Sagitattarians just don't know how to stay put in one place for too long. That's why we gave them corn on the cob, the delicious and unique dish that's all its own and requires consistent shifts in order to be grilled the way it should be.

Capricorn (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19): Sandwiches

Hardworking and dedicated Capricorns are often known for pulling all the weight, much like a sub sandwich that holds everything else together and is as satisfying on its own as it is accompanied by all the other signs—sorry, sides.

Aquarius (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18):
Veggie Plate

Eclectic, colorful and more than meets the eye—are we describing the veggie platter at your last summer barbecue, or the rarest sign of the zodiac, Aquarius? You be the judge. Don't overlook this sign and its power or this healthy side dish, often accompanied by zesty ranch or other condiments that keeps everyone on their toes.

Pisces (Feb. 19 – March 20):
Ice Cream

We had to give Pisces the pleasure of landing the only dessert on this list. This is partly because of the obvious fact that Pisces is the last sign in the zodiac, much like dessert tends to come last at a meal. But we also went with this dish because it's as sweet as our gentle and dreamy Pisces, who are known for being calm yet capable of stinging when necessary—much like taking the wrong bite out of your favorite popsicle or ice cream sandwich and ending up with a brain freeze because of it.
