We grill almost daily and enjoy using fresh produce from our garden. These pepper halves filled with a basil-seasoned corn mixture is my husband's favorite recipe. —Rachael Marrier, Star Prairie, Wisconsin
"I made this dish for my Women's Health Initiative Group at our local university, and everyone just loved it," informs Betty Washburn of Reno, Nevada. "The grilled vegetables pick up a pleasantly mild flavor from the lemon juice and herb seasonings."
"I put this combination together one day when trying to serve a side dish other than mushrooms in butter," recalls Susan Jesson of Oro Station, Ontario. "Everyone loves this pleasantly seasoned medley and asks for the recipe."
Living on this beautiful Canadian island, we often grill out, so we can eat while enjoying the scenery. This tempting veggie dish is the perfect accompaniment to any barbecue fare. To make the recipe even more satisfying, I often use my homegrown vegetables an herbs in the mix.
"I fixed this colorful side dish on Father's Day one year and it has been requested many times since," says Kimberly Hennes-Skar of Minot, North Dakota. "It goes well with any grilled meat, chicken or seafood. It's easy to prepare but looks like you spent a lot of time on it."
Sweet potato wedges are seasoned to please in this savory side dish from Gay Nel Nicholas of Henderson, Texas. "My husband and I love the sweet spuds any way they are cooked," she notes. "This recipe from a friend is not only different, it's delicious, too."
Dijon mustard and horseradish perk up this summertime favorite. You can prepare this sweet corn on the grill or in the oven. I can't remember where I found this recipe, but it's a real keeper!
