It’s BBQ season again, and that means more than just grilling meats and passing out beer. We’ve pulled together 3 of our favorite (and unique) barbecue side salad recipes from the web to help you make something special this weekend! Not only can you wow your guests, but you’ll get to show a bit of your chefy side while you’re at it! Happy Cooking!
Blueberry & Corn Salad
Promise, it tastes better than it sounds on first read. It’s a quirky little side dish, yes, but it’s absolutely amazing. There’s sweetness, saltiness, freshness and most importantly an unexpected hint of cilantro. To make it completely grill friendly, char your corn right on the grill and you’ll never need to go inside!
Scallop & Orange Summer Salad
Scallops and oranges go so well together – it’s almost crazy. Buttery richness, meets a fresh citrus zing in this delicious salad. It’s a great mix and a perfect side. Not to mention – you can grill the scallops right on the BBQ and if you need to show off your chefy side, lightly grill the oranges as well.
Grilled Caesar Salad
While this one on our list might not have an unusual ingredient combination, it does change the Caesar salad you’re used to in a big way. Grilling your salad is not something you traditionally get to do at home, so that alone makes this recipe something kind of special in our book.
