    1. Onion rings, Stouffers mac&cheese, fatoush, latkes, kugel........sauted/grilled portobello's......rice pilaf w/mush, grn peas, parmesan...

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

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

          1. Asian flavored slaw - rice wine vinegar, soy, a little sugar, red pepper flakes, sesame oil
            Sweet and sour broccoli slaw
            Cold rice salad with lots of fresh herbs, feta, chopped tomatoes, lemon vinaigrette
            Roasted beets, green beans, balsamic vinaigrette, goat cheese, pine nuts

              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.

            2. 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
