Summer Side Dish Recipes
Potato salad is a summer staple, but if you'd prefer to avoid all that extra mayo then this fresh twist on the classic salad is for you. Spoiler alert: healthier whole grain mustard and olive oil take mayo's place!
Pasta salad is another one of those summer classics, and this upgraded recipe is one of our favorites. Full of flavor, greens, and tasty balsamic, your party goers will be pleasantly surprised with this twist on your classic pasta salad.
If you've already got the grill on, turn the heat up to high and make your summer side dish right there. This charred corn salad accompanied by tomatoes and red onion is a great option for all you corn on the cob lovers, and is a bit easier to eat if you're socializing in the backyard.
While garlic bread isn't typically a side dish that you think about serving over 4th of July weekend, this one topped with mushrooms is too good to pass up. Plus, if you already have the grill on, we think heating the bread on the grill would be a great added touch.
Can't forget about the finger food that everyone loves to munch on before the grill heats up! If you want to bring a little pre-dinner snack to your celebration then we recommend this party mix with some unconventional ingredients like Bugles and roasted green peas. Trust us, take one look at it and you'll want to make it!
