Is it just me, or does it seem like there's a barbeque going on every weekend? No, it's not just me. It's just a part of summer! A delicious part of summer.
And, while most people focus on what goes on the grill, I like to focus on what goes along with the stuff on the grill - sides! Here are a few of my favorites and I'd love to hear from you about your favorite sides.
Zucchini Carpaccio - Sounds fancy huh? Well, it's actually super easy. Take yellow and green zucchini and slice super super thin. Layer on a plate and drizzle with olive oil, lemon and salt and pepper to taste. It's a nice, cool, and healthy treat to that goes well with fish or chicken.
Tomato, Basil and Mozzarella Skewers - I had these at a party and went crazy over them. All you need are the three ingredients in the title. And, once they are made, they are simply gorgeous on the table. You'll need skewers, grape tomatoes, fresh basil leaves, and small bite sized pieces of fresh mozzarella.
Doctored Baked Beans - Really, this is just an awesome short cut I use when I want good baked beans that taste more like homemade. I get a can of my favorite baked beans, but then I add chopped bell peppers, onions and a little brown sugar when I'm simmering it. Turns out great and no one is the wiser.
Moms, share your favorite barbeque sides here!
