BBQ Dinner Party Help

boltsfan | Jul 21, 2010 08:11 AM

Heed some help for another side dish for a bbq dinner party.

We are having 3 couples over for dinner on Friday night (8 people total). Food theme is sort of a mix between Mexico\Argentina.

Here is the menu I have so far:
Grilled\smoked tri-tip
Chimichurri sauce
Corn ( fresh corn, creme fraiche, lime, cilantro, jalapenos, cotija cheese) on the grill in a cast iron skillet
Caesar salad (tortilla strips, cilantro, cumin, pepitas)

What is another veggie I could grill that would go well with this menu? We love grilling asparagus but it does not seem to match. Also love wilted spinach or swiss chard but it does not seem to go either. Any ideas...?

Also... would some good garlic bread match well or not? Seems like too much starch to me but who does not love good garlic bread...?

Thanks for the help!
