After receiving an email inquiring for suggestions on healthy barbecue side dishes, I got carried away for a couple minutes this morning on kraftfoods.com.  It’s that time of year, when the potato salads and creamy coleslaw are staring you right in the face. The good news? The fun options I came across sound more appealing-slash-refreshing than the heavy and creamy sides we’ve grown accustomed to.

This Heirloom Tomato Salad sounds particularly wonderful to me.

1 lb mixed fresh tomatoes, chopped

1/2 cup thinly sliced red onions

1/4 cup Athenos Crumbled Feta Cheese with Basil & Tomato

Combine ingredients….and impress your friends.
