Food For Thought: Late-Summer BBQ Side Dishes

Sure, you’ve got your steak, hot dogs, and hamburgers, but no great barbecue is complete without a few finger-licking side dishes. But forget french fries and anything that requires an oven, these sides are sticking side by side with your meat, right on the grill.

Chili-Rubbed Grilled Vegetable Kabobs
Not only are these healthy kabobs tasty (and the perfect portion), they shake plates up with a little color.

Grilled Avocado
Switch up your guacamole routine and try putting this superfood right on the grill. Finish it off with a little salsa, and voilà! – it’s a Mexican-inspired barbecue.

Grilled Mangos
Yes, you can grill up dessert, too – and these mangos are the perfect example. Once you get this dish down pat, experiment with different glazes (I’m a big fan of this chili honey version).

Our For End-of-Summer BBQs: Outdoor Grilling Essentials Boutique opens August 3, at 11AM ET.
