Summer is just around the corner and although the season doesn’t officially begin quite yet, the unofficial start of warm weather months is finally here. When thinking of Memorial Day, trips to the beach, cookouts, pool parties and honoring our veterans and active service members come to mind. The best part? All of the yummy eats of course! As we head into the long weekend, get ready to fire up the grill and prepare these simple, yet delicious side dishes that you can make while your main entrée is cooking away.
Steal the Grill’s Thunder
The grill always gets the most attention Memorial Day Weekend, and for good reason. Who doesn’t love enjoying a hearty burger, hot dog or charred-to-perfection chicken? But, your entrée prepared on the grill would not be the same without scrumptious Classic Scalloped Corn to pair on the side.
Brighten Up the Day
Side dishes might be an afterthought at your BBQ, until now. Put your summertime veggies to good use in a colorful side dish with this Colorful Chopped Salad made with Libby’s® Whole Kernel Sweet Corn and Cut Green Beans. Even the kids will be impressed by this delectable salad.
