This is the continuation of my Taste of Home Annual Recipes where I share my choices for the best recipes in various categories for each year I have in my collection. I hope you find something you will try in your own kitchen and they are enjoyed by your family and friends as much as they are by mine.
Here are my top five picks for best bbq sides & salad recipes:
Freezer Salsa Recipe – A great way to use up your garden produce during the summer time this recipes origin was some kids in a home economics class that were making this salsa and a teacher from another class had smelled it and decided it was a must have recipe. This contains many of your usual salsa ingredients as well as an unusual one, condensed tomato soup, something I had not heard of before but it sure does make this an original recipe your friends and family are sure to enjoy.
Grilled Corn Dip – Another great summer recipe, an appetizer to get things stared before the big meal. This takes a bit of work because you grill the corn first but it makes all the difference in the world in the flavor of your dip. If you just don’t have the time to grill your corn, you can use frozen or canned and you will still end up with a delicious dip. Serve with tortilla chips which you can get creative with a few different varieties like blue corn or kale tortilla chips.
Loaded Baked Potato Salad – This recipe is a contest winning recipe and will transform your potato salad into a bowl of baked potatoes with all the fixings. This dish is sure to be requested for future gatherings once everyone gets a taste of this dish. This recipe originated with someones mothers potato salad recipe which she decided to revamp and ended up with this amazing flavor. I love a great potato salad, twice baked potatoes or baked potatoes stuffed with lots of different toppings. You will have the best of all of these in once recipe when you make this and I am sure it will be a big hit and what cook does not love compliments on their food?
Creamy Cranberry Salad – Creamy and fruit are always a good combination and this recipe is a great combination of ingredients that are sure to make your taste buds explode with fruity flavor. I love the color of this from the cranberries, it gives it such a fresh and appetizing appearance, like a bowl full of ice cream with fruit. This is a quick and easy recipe and one I am sure you will want to make again and again.
Sweet & Spicy Jalapeno Poppers – A great appetizer that you can make ahead of time these are sure to disappear so make sure to make plenty of them. A change from your usual cream cheese stuffed peppers this have an amazing flavor with the added ingredients of brown sugar, bacon, cheddar cheese and chili seasoning. Simple to make so now worries about stressing in the kitchen preparing these tasty bites.
