What makes a good summer side dish?
On a hot summer evening, we crave sides that are light and fresh and full of a variety of colors and textures. As we tend to eat a bit lighter in the summer, sides follow suit and are full of seasonal vegetables. Also, most of the best summer side dishes are delicious eaten either cold or at room temperature.
