Healthy Barbecue Sides:
If you like potatoes with extra crispy edges and soft melt-in-your-mouth centers, you’ll love these potatoes. Scratch that. If you’re human you’ll love these potatoes.
Grilled corn and bell peppers bring sweetness. The tomatillos and cilantro are bright and fresh, and the avocado is rich and buttery. The poblano adds earthiness and the grill marks around out this salad with smoky perfection.
Broccoli is coated in a sweet and creamy dressing and jazzed up with smokey coconut bacon, toasty seeds, and sweet raisins. A BBQ staple.
Salad is good and all, but salad that is approximately 80% carbs… thats the best kind of salad! Especially when the remaining 20% is made up with fresh asparagus, spinach, basil, and the best lemon vinaigrette you ever have tasted!

Is it cherry pie? Is it cherry crumble? With these bars it’s the best of both worlds!
