My go-to “bring a side” dish

Summertime means gatherings with good food, friends and family. Whether it’s a pool party, BBQ, holiday weekend or just a hangout…we all need a good and easy go-to “side dish” to bring to these gatherings.


If you are like me, I prefer to have about one to two easy signature dishes that I can just repeat and whip together last minute as we are heading out the door. This side dish is not only easy, but requires NO cooking at all, and as a bonus its nutritious!

It’s chilled, making it perfect for summer and it pairs well with most every main dish that will be served.
