[donotprint]I love having friends over. I love feeding my friends and I get a special thrill when I see them devouring and loving the food that I’ve prepared. So, Friday night we had friends over for a BBQ.
We grilled some wicked pork chops
flame broiled grilled up some amazing chicken quarters
I served Summer Breezes
We made crazy drool-worthy bbq side dishes that were cool, zingy, tangy and downright tonguegasmic
In case you can’t tell, the sun was setting and I was scrambling to capture the golden light
Today, y’all are getting the recipes for both the side dishes that I created for this BBQ.
I love fresh, crisp, chilled foods for barbecue side dishes when it’s hot outside. This Chilled Confetti Salad was a massive hit with everyone, even the kids. One friend was even eating this with chips like an appetizer!I think you should definitely serve this confetti salad with fresh limes so everyone can squeeze lime over their serving. [/donotprint]
[donotprint] Potato Salad is sort of an iconic BBQ and Picnic side dish-I however, am not a huge fan of the potato salads that are over saturated with mayonnaise or mustard. You know the ones that make that ‘schnock’ sound when you remove them from their dish. So for this BBQ I wanted to make my own take on German Potato Salad, a vinaigrette based potato salad that is traditionally served warm. My potato salad combines green onions, a bit of spicy mustard, fresh cracked black pepper and red wine vinaigrette.
Friday night was filled with laughter and games, good food and friends, all the things that a great evening are made of.
So, stay tuned.
