Keeping a classic flair to your party is always nice because we don’t want to scare people with crazy dishes. So grab some sweet corn at your local farmer’s market and throw it on the grill. Add an extra kick to your corn with a little lime, chili powder and butter; it will make all the difference. Vegetables on the grill are always and fun and a different way to provide healthy side dishes to your BBQ. Eggplant is a simple and fast choice. Simply slice the eggplant in about ½ inch slices, sprinkle with salt and then lightly coat both sides with a mixture of vegetable oil, lemon juice, and garlic salt. Grill each side for about 2 minutes.
