    1. I wish we did BBQs. We have 2 BBQ stands but haven’t gotten round to using them. I would start with an appetizer (when we get going) and then serve the salad with the grilled things on offer

      What a great question and your salad sounds very intriguing. (What are canned maize grains BTW?)

      I love to start off casual evenings around the grill with small glasses of icy, spicy, boldly flavored gazpacho. Green Chile Gazpacho and Red Bell Pepper Gazpacho are two of my current favorites.
