        There is a great recipe on www.pioneerwoman.com for onion strings. They are easy and look good. I'm trying them tomorrow.

          We love baked beans and grilled corn. Also, a caprese salad with gorgeous summer tomatoes goes really well.

              Last night I made a delicious side to go with my pork/chorizo burger. Cut fresh corn off the cob (2), mix with 1 diced red pepper, add 1 diced avocado. Liberally squeeze fresh lime juice over it all, season with kosher salt and a bit of fresh ground pepper. Simple as can be, but the flavor combo is a knockout! I'm having leftovers for breakfast.

              Roasted corn and apple salad: i forget where i got the recipe, but it's something like this:
              - roast corn on grill or under broiler; cut off cob
              - add cubes of crisp, tart apple that you've cored and peeled
              - add diced red onion, jalapeno (without seeds for less heat), fresh cilantro and mint
              - squeeze lime juice on
              - add pinch of salt
              - mix well
              - best if you let it sit for an hour before serving so flavors mix
