Perfect Sides to Any Summer Dish

Perfect Sides to Any Summer Dish

Kale is all the rage! Think outside the salad bowl and roast a batch of kale as “chips” – perfect to serve in place of traditional potato chips.  Because these kale “chips” are baked instead of fried, you’ll save calories and fat grams – plus dish up a dose of antioxidants key to your good health!

Carrot “chips” add a burst of bright color and nearly “sweet” flavor to snack time or as a side to your luncheon sandwich! Choose extra-large carrots for the simplest way to shave into strips.

Roasting veggies caramelizes their natural sugars for an extra layer of flavor. Don’t forget to make extras – the salsa makes a great topping for pizza made on the grill.
