Summer is so close, we can taste the salty air and feel the sand beneath our toes! One thing we've already noticed, especially as Memorial Day approaches, is the smell of some good old barbequing. Anything cooked on the grill accompanies the warm weather so well. That's why today, we're bringing you six sides you can char for that added sizzle to accompany any meal all summer long. Yum!
These can be stuffed and served solo or diced and sprinkled on top of a salad, either way, you'll definitely add grilled avocado to your favorite meals all summer long!
What's better than fresh fruit in the summer? Caramelized fresh fruit! The grill intensifies the natural sweetness while infusing an unexpected smoke flavor. Is you mouth watering yet?
Sure, you may add bacon to your burger in the summer months, but have you actually tried scorching it a bit on the grill before using it as a topping? Make sure to use thick-cut bacon and grill the slices over a medium flame to slowly crisp them up without burning. Mmmm, bacon!
One of our favorite summertime accompaniments is cornbread! This unexpecting side can pack a whole lot of flavor. Turn cornbread into a sweet and smokey snack by charring it on the grill and slathering it with some chive butter!
We've never seen edamame grilled before but we're dying to try it out! The saltiness of these gems intensifies when it meets the smokiness of the barbeque. A snack you won't be able to put down this summer!
Serve these untraditional pastries with whipped cream and fresh berries for the perfect summertime dessert. Get the recipe here.
We hope these six sides have got you excited for grillin' season and you're getting ready to devour the details of every meal this summer!
