  1. #1 I Need Another Side Dish. 
    As usual, more people are coming over on the Fourth. We're having the usual meat thingies and I've got potato salad, coleslaw, baked beans and some thing called Frog-Eyes along with a salad and chips.

    What's another good side dish?

    I'll consider the three-bean (although I'm not personnally wild about it - too many church suppers). Thanks!

    I'm still open to ideas.

    My wife made a great dish called Pan Bigio (?). Basically salad with bread, and it was great.

    Sliced basil
    Sliced red onions
    Diced and seeded tomatoes
    Diced cucumbers
    Day-old bread, sauteed in garlic and butter then roasted to make croutons

    Mix veggies, add in bread and toss with olive oil & balsalmic vinegar. Add cheese (parmasean or romano is good), salt, pepper.

    Makes as much as you want, and you can add any extra veggies that you have lying around. The bread can get soggy quick, so its best to serve within a few hours after making. Depending on the size of the bread, you should let the bread absorb flavor for about an hour before serving anyway. You can mix the veggies and dressing early and add the bread when you are ready.

    here's a link

    It should look like this (although ours wasn't nearly as pretty)

    We use this as a side alot, just make more than a dollup of the dipping sauce and it is a nice cold side dish.

    Marinated Asparagus Salad

    1 bunch asparagus, trimmed and cooked, or 1 1/2 (15-ounce) cans whole green asparagus spears
    1/2 teaspoon dried tarragon leaves
    Black pepper
    1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
    1 (0.7-ounce) package Italian salad dressing mix, prepared according to package directions
    1/4 cup tarragon vinegar
    Lettuce leaves
    Mayonnaise


    Drain the asparagus and layer it in a shallow glass dish. Sprinkle each layer with some crumbled tarragon, pepper, to taste, and garlic salt. Pour the salad dressing and vinegar over the asparagus, cover, and refrigerate overnight. Serve chilled asparagus on lettuce leaves, topped with a dollop of mayonnaise flavored with a little of the dressing.
