Smile What side dishes do you make or take?- Summer BBQ/ Cookout

We are going to a cookout tomorrow and I have no idea what kind of side dish to bring. I wanted to take something other than the traditional potato salad or coleslaw side dish. (They may have them already.) Does anyone have any ideas? I was thinking about making some grilled veggies or a 7 layer salad? What are you favorite sides to make or take to a summer cookout?

I love to make fruit salad served in a hollowed out watermelon. Not only does it look nice, it's cool and yummy on a hot summer day.

I make a roasted shrimp and orzo salad. YUM-O. I don't put Feta in it, as I'm not a feta fan, but it's just as good without it! Roasted Shrimp and Orzo Recipe : Ina Garten : Food Network

Well I can't help you much I am usually asked to bring potato salad - everyone loves my grandmother's recipe. If I don't make that I usually bring either deviled eggs or pasta salad.

This is very easy and very popular everywhere I take it.

1 16oz. pasta cooked (i use the rainbow rotini or penne)
1 to 2 tomatoes depending on size
2 bunches green onion
1 cucumber
1 and a 1/4 c. Italian dressing (generic works just fine)
3/4 c. honey

Chop cucumber and tomatoe to bite size. Slice green onion with a little of the green part too. Add into the pasta. Mix dressing and honey and pour over veggies and pasta and stir well to coat. Let it sit in the refrigerater overnight. I do stir it occasionally. Good luck.

My friend makes this incredible black bean and corn salsa. It is so awesome that people just eat it without the chips. They just spoon it onto their plates. If anyone wants the recipe, please PM me. It is worth it!

I usually make a 7 layer salad because it's vegetarian-friendly (if I use fakin bits instead of bacon bits ). Lately there are a lot of vegetarians in the groups we hang with.

Sweet corn casserole
I use an ice cream scoop to scoop it out
2 eggs
1 can cream style corn
1 can whole kernel corn
1 cup sour cream
1/3 cup sugar
1/2 melted butter
1 box Jiffy corn muffin mix

Stir together eggs, corns, sour cream, sugar, butter and Jiffy mix. Pour into greased 2 quart baking dish. Bake 45-50 minutes at 350.

FYI....I usually double the recipe when I make it.

It's a bit early as far north as I live, but once the tomatoes are better I often just do a big platter of slices of tomatoes and cucumbers with some sweet onion. I chop up lots (and lots) of fresh basil and then drizzle over a good balsamic vinegar and some olive oil and some fresh ground pepper and salt. So simple, but usually someone trys to lick the plate clean. It's also excellent if you just layer the tomatoes with slices of smoked gouda and then top with the vinegar etc. Sometimes simple is best when the veggies are so fresh.
Another big hit is a chocolate covered strawberry bouquet esp if there are kids coming. I skewer the berries on long wooden skewers and sprinkle some coloured cake decorating beads on them before the chocolate dries and then put them in a vase and bring them as a centrepiece. mmmmm - I did my first big BBQ of the season today at work - sausages on a bun and Angus burgers - sooooo yummy!
