Simple Grilling Sides
Although the meat is generally the star of the show when it comes to grilling, I believe the side dishes play a very important supporting role. If you aren’t a big meat eater, like me, you look forward to sides that are satisfying. Today I am going to share 4 simple side dishes to accompany your entrees this Fourth of July and all summer long. These dishes require minimal prep work and look gorgeous on any tablescape.
First up, a chilled watermelon, feta and mint salad. This one is so simple it doesn’t require an actual recipe. Simple cube your watermelon, top with half a cup of feta cheese and a few chopped mint leaves. Beautiful and refreshing.
Grilled vegetables and fruit take on a sweet and savory flavor when grilled. No need for a lot of extra seasoning and fluff. Use grilled pineapple to top burgers, fish or chicken for a fresh burst of fruity flavor that compliments meat so well. Or take your hot grilled pineapple and serve them à la mode with a scoop of ice cream.
