Chicken lemon rice is an iconic comfort soup found at most coney islands or Greek restaurants. It’s the perfect soup for the days when you have a cold and/or need something warm and comforting.
Fun fact, did you know the Greek name for this soup is Avgolemono meaning egg-lemon sauce?
Mushrooms are a great side next to a steak, chicken, tossed in a salad, or on an antipasto platter. Add balsamic to the mushrooms to make them more flavorful, but only add at the end of cooking. Balsamic vinegar isn’t intended to cook with, cooking it kills the distinctive flavorful taste =)
Also, before you use the balsamic, make sure you bought a good balsamic vinegar.
This is a great salad as a side for a BBQ or as a base for a lunch or dinner salad. You can make it hearty or fresh based on the fresh vegetable you add into it. Chop up cucumbers, tomatoes, peppers, red onions with warm grilled cut off the cob for a great summer salad and add your favorite salad vinaigrette dressing. The dressing can be store bought or homemade. I like adding zesty Italian dressing into the mix.
Check out the grilled corn recipe before adding corn into this toasted salad. Enjoy!
I love creamy mashed potatoes. Mashed potatoes are a great side next to most proteins and it is easy to make. There’s so many ways to make mashed potatoes and there’s so many different potatoes to choose from. I prefer Yukon gold potatoes for their natural creaminess […]
Coleslaw is a great add at any BBQ, potluck, or side dish. I made this coleslaw to add it on top of a BBQ pulled chicken sandwich.
Anyhow, I like mayonnaise based coleslaw but there’s sour cream and buttermilk kinds too. I won’t claim this is be best coleslaw, but it’s my favorite type. It’s more vinegar-ie than sweet. If you don’t have it white wine vinegar, swap it with apple cider vinegar.
…BTW, I shredded my own cabbage and carrots for this. If you don’t have enough time for it, buy the shredded coleslaw from the store.
