Oh, you mean a cookout/grilling.

Just the normal stuff, slaw, chips, tater salad, beans, and dessert.

How about a fruit salad. You could just cut up a bunch of seasonal fruit. Or mixed berries and shortcake shells.

Black Eye Pea Salad

This is a great side dish to bring. It tastes even better the second or third day so don't be afraid to make it ahead. I make is for BBQ's all the time (sorry Rainee, that is what we call it in the North ) and it is always a hit.

Black Eye Pea Salad

2 cups black eye peas
4 oz. white onion - diced
6 oz. red bell peppers - diced
4 oz. black olives - chopped
1 tbsp oregano
4 oz. parsley
(great with cilantro too)

For the dressing:
6 oz. EVOO
Zest of half a lime
4 oz. white vinegar
1 tsp chopped garlic
1 tbsp sugar
salt and pepper to taste

Combine first 6 ingredients in a large bowl.
Mix dressing in a separate bowl and pour over salad.
Adjust with salt and pepper to taste.

Here's probably the easiest recipe I have, and it's perfect to bring to a BBQ:

Garden Rainbow Pasta Salad

1 12 oz. pkg of tri-colored rotelle pasta
1 12 oz. jar (drained and diced) of fire roasted yellow and red bell peppers
1 3.8 oz. can (drained) of sliced black olives
1 12 oz. jar (drained and cut up) of marinated artichokes
4 oz. red wine and olive oil vinaigrette dressing

Boil pasta according to package directions, and rinse with cold water and ice cubes to quickly cool. Drain. Mix all ingredients together.

This recipe is from Trader Joes :)

How about Italian Pasta Chips? Just boil up bag or 3 of the tri-colored pasta, to a little less than al dente. Drain well and put on paper towels(this will get a little sticky so do as many pieces as you can handle.) Then deep fry for a minute or two. Now drain and sprinkle with grated Parmesan, a little salt and Italian herbs if you desire. Great party food!

And don't hesitate to experiment with other herbs and spices. I have added chopped Habenjero to the boiling water with great success. And we have salted and added fresh squeezed lime juice to our delight also...

I love to play with my food! lol I love to experiment and do it all the time, no two recipes are ever completed in the same way at our house, always room for improvement. I have catered out of my kitchen for years and like to offer my small clientele a little taste of the good life...from my point of view of course. = )
