We’re hosting a Labor Day weekend BBQ this Saturday.  I’ve asked each guest to bring along one favorite dish – a side dish, appetizer, or a dessert, though I typically have the desserts covered.   I thought it would be fun for each of us to try each other’s dishes, try something new.  (Hope my guests see it that way also and are not cursing me out about having to bring something!)

So I was wondering – if you are asked to bring something to a BBQ, what is your favorite food item to bring?   Inquiring minds want to know…


  • I’ll start. When I’m not bringing desserts (ha!) I might consider bringing this because it’s so easy and everyone loves it: Italian-style potato salad (mayo free).

    Boil red potatoes in salted water until tender. Drain, then cut potatoes into cubes. Place in a bowl with sliced red onions, small chopped celery, a little bit of choppped parsley. Drizzle olive oil and good white wine vinegar over the potatoes. Season with sea salt and freshly ground pepper to taste. Toss to combine everything.

    Your turn…
