We're invited to a friend's house for dinner Sunday night, and the guests are asked to bring "a salad or side dish to go with our mixed grill". This is not going to be another thread on potlucks - I know this couple well, and within this group of friends we often entertain this way. My question is what to bring?
I've been contributing to this sort of event for years. In the past my standbys have been fresh salsa or tomato salad (when tomatoes are in season), spicy Chinese noodles, black beans with chorizo (delicious, but a lot of work), and bean/corn salads. I'm bored and uninspired! Help, please.
