Cookout Suggestions?

(Originally posted by Brandi)

We are having a Lifegroup cookout tomorrow night and need to bring something. We are the last to sign up and can bring whatever we want. It will be hamburgers (we will bring our buns) and somebody else is already bringing baked beans (sugary, I’m sure) so I don’t think I should bring beans. Any suggestions for a South Beach friendly side dish to bring? Feel free to make suggestions even if you don’t post a recipe. I’m just drawing a blank and I want my Bird-man to have a yummy meal!


  1. How about a cold veggie salad? My aunt used to cut up fresh broccoli and cauliflower and toss it with ranch…you could use the fat free ranch.

  2. Is anyone likely to be taking salad? As in lettuce and stuff.. I know that sounds a bit boring, but you can stick all sorts of stuff in it and make it really interesting, and then you can fill up on salad if there’s no much else you can eat. Assuming of course, that you actually like salad!

  3. Kalyn’s Kitchen Spinach, Bacon, Feta Salad sounds good at the moment. And we love the Romaine & Yellow Beet Salad.

    Have fun at the cookout!

  5. I had a really tasty mayo-free coleslaw at a cookout once. I didn’t get the recipe, but it was petty spicy, and I believe they used some vinegar and olive oil for the saucy part. It wasn’t sweet at all, but was VERY yummy!

  6. kalyns kitchen had a recipe up just a couple days ago with cucumber, yogurt, and dill. That would be fantastic to me!

  7. Pizza might be a good option.

  10. Thanks for all of your suggestions! Blest, I really wanted to make yours, but I would have to douple it and I am too much of a cheap-skate to buy those peppers for $1.50 each! ;-)

    I ended up making Chickpea salad II from (I used diced Roma tomatoes and added black olives and pepper.) So far it tasted great and it hasn’t even marinated yet!

  11. I get my colored peppers at Sams Club. It’s usually $6 a bag for six red, orange, and yellow. And earlier this week they had bags of six red for less than $4!! YUM!

  12. I guess the real question, Brandi, was whether bird ate any of it? ;-)

  13. Two servings! ;-) Everyone else liked it too…it was all gone and I made a double recipe!
