Tailgating JIMMY BUFFETT Style

aphayes Apr 18, 2011 10:15 AM

Putting together a tailgate for the Jimmy Buffett concert tomorrow. So far we are going to do shrimp and cheeseburgers (in paradise?) on the grill. Im gonna mix up some margs and maybe do key lime tarts for dessert, but need some other ideas... especially for the sides. Was thinking GA caviar would be a good light one, but any other ideas would be greatly appreciated!

    Grilled pineapple. Good as dessert, or on the burgers.

      Their restaurants are famous for the nachos!

        How about a Caribbean potato salad and a jicama slaw? For the potato salad, cook both white and sweet potatoes, add peanuts, cucumbers, red onion, and cilantro, and make a dressing of Dijon mustard, garlic, lime juice and peanut oil. For the jicama slaw, I use matchsticked jicama and Granny Smith apples, jalapeno, cilantro, and a lime juice and oil dressing (no Dijon in the slaw).

          Both of those sound absolutely delish!

          What about a mango salsa?

          Pulled Chicken Jerk Sliders - with the slaw.

          It's outstanding

            Jello shots or pineapple soaked in rum
