All these sides sound great! I love refrigerater pickles, recipe varies every time I make them.
I bought a jar of McCormack Sesame seeds many years ago. I used them once and a couple of years later when I was cleaning out, I tossed them. Not because they were rancid, but because they were old. To this day I have never had a need for sesame seeds. (I can't digest them.) Considering that they were a national name brand, would they have gone rancid? They were the white kind.

Addie, no one can digest them. If they're consumed whole, they just go right through. That's how fiber cleans out the intestines.

Yes, they would have been rancid after sitting in a cabinet for two years. It doesn't matter what brand they are - like other foods, they just won't be fresh after that long.

Thank you for the quick response. So glad I tossed them and didn't try to use them again.

I actually keep my nuts and seeds in the freezer, but I keep sesame oil in the fridge.

*Bump*

This thread is sure worth a re-read this time of year for inspiration!

Any other ideas for this hot weather?

I haven't re-read it yet, however, my eating habits have changed a lot in the past 3 years.

One of my staples is avocado. I put it in salads, slice it like a side, make guacamole, or put it in a sandwich. While it is good any time of year, it is one of my summer staples!

I keep all of my nuts or seeds in the freezer. Why didn't I think of the Sesame seeds?

When I make potato salad, I use Maine or P.E.I. potatoes. I find that if cut and seasoned while still warm, they absorb the flavors of the seasonings easier. Celery and onion are finely diced and I toss them with the salt, Italian seasoning and pepper. Then I add it all to the diced potato. Mayo is always the last to go in. I also peel the potatoes. My family is not fond of the skins. You get a big "YUK" when they come across them in cold food.

Some wonderful ideas.
Thank you for posting.

I adore salads ranging from Caprese, Fennel with orange or Ruby grapefruit & fresh mint leaves, Rocket (arugula) with Radicchio and a simple vinaigrette, an Antipasto, Ceviche, Tabuli, Quinoa Salad, Greek Salad, Hummus, Babaghanouj, French Gaspacho, Spanish Gazpacho and Tapenade with Kalamata Olives .. Cole Slaw .. An Asian Salad interests me ..

I like to keep it very light and nothing hot.

Have a nice weekend ..

A check mark after everything Larry says, grilled zukes though. Pesto

I haven't made kebabs of any kind lately, so things on sticks sounds good.

7 layer salad if serving a bunch. Iceberg lettuce on the bottom, layer up w/ sliced veggies, cover the top with still frozen peas. Seal completely over with mayo (Dx uses miracle whip w/ a spoonful of sugar), refrigerate. The moisture from the peas somehow works its way to the bottom and really crisps up the lettuce. Top with shredded cheese and I like to add parsley before serving.

This may sound sort of ordinary, but a good BLT ( with avocado or cucumber) is really good in summer.

My favorite sides are BBQ'd brown sugared califlower, BBQ zucchini, poppers or bacon wrapped sprouts.

As well as the typical beans, corn or baked potatoes on the grill.

If going simple, I like a plain bagged salad and raspberry vinegrette.

And I agree, food on a stick sounds yummy.

I've been making a lot of watermelon-feta salad with mint the last couple of years. I sometimes add cucumbers, too: http://www.seriouseats.com/recipes/2...ad-recipe.html.
