My Journey Through FoodTribe: #sidesmatter
Some of you may know and some may not but I tried out some the recipes from my challenge...
There were so many tasty sounding side dishes from my challenge that I had to try some out. I may go back and try some more out but let's check out the ones I did try out. These are in no particular order.
Darren Parsons: Apple and beetroot relish
This was a proper balance of flavors and very enjoyable. Sweet, tart, earthy and a bit of spice made this a wonderful BBQ side dish. This is the first time I have ever had beetroot. The color inside the beetroot was very pretty.
Angel L: Chinese cucumber salad
This satisfied my Asian side with the flavors of this cucumber salad. Salty, spicy, sour and paired with some fatty beef and a bit of rice, this was amazing.
Yu Ting Yau: Seasoned Corn on the cob
The seasoning was on point and complimented the corn well. Most of the seasonings seemed to want to pool in the foil with the butter. Next time I will add butter and seasonings after I cook the corn. Delicious flavor combination.
Right! as requested bbq isn’t complete unless you have some amazing sides. Apart from my amazing potato salad! My other secret side is bbq
Christy Sanders-Sarti: CORN ON THE COB WITH SMOKY PARMESAN CILANTRO BUTTER
Let's go for the next seasoned corn on the cob. This one was delicious as well and will probably have it again. I loved just slathering on the butter mixture onto that hot corn. Watching is just drip down onto the plate...I might need to fix this tonight.
My second recipe for Jane Fyffe's #sidesmatter challenge
Doug F: Polish Cucumber salad
This nothing heavy gunked up with mayo. This is lightly creamy, seasoned with dill and chives. I can make a whole dinner out of this. I can only imagine how much better the hungarian cucumber salad would taste.

Doug F: Baked beans
Sweet, smoky, a bit of spice and cooked until nice and thick. Makes me want to throw some ribs on the grill and make up some more of these baked beans.
Zahara Shafiei: Iranian cucumber tomato salad
One thing I have learned when I hosted this challenge is that every country has their own version of cucumber salad. This was very tasty also and I greatly enjoyed it. I ordered the unripe grape juice off of Amazon so I could properly try this. The unripe grape juice does make a big difference compared to doing lime or a vinegar, it adds a different taste and I was glad I tried it this way. Very delicious and fresh.
Simple, quick and refreshing Iranian staple salad.
