Is someone else bringing potato salad?…You truly can’t have enough, but if you don’t want to bring a repeated dish, definitely give theseGrilled Veggies with Roasted Red Pepper Marinade and Dip a try. You can have this as a side dish, or serve it as a vegetarian main dish by grabbing ciabatta or a French baguette and making a sandwich with the dip and vegetables topped with goat cheese, or your own favorite.
Do you have some extra grilled chicken in the fridge from last night’s dinner? Chop it in small cubes and add some cooked pasta, chopped veggiesand this savory dressingfor a masterpiece in minutes.
In my book, you always have to have some sort of dessert at a cookout, too. There are those times when you just have to try every side and main dish – and you get full. So full that you start counting the amount of exercise you’ll need to do to work it all off later. Still, you find yourself wanting to end your meal with a summer treat. Voila –The Red White and Blue Smoothie Parfait—refreshing, light and just the right amount of sweetness (and guilt). Grab some clear plastic cups, glasses or mason jars and layer Stonyfield Strawberry lowfat yogurt with Stonyfield Vanilla lowfat yogurt and then top with blended blueberries for some patriotic pizzazz to end your day.
