Side Delights® answers the question, “What to serve with my BBQ this grilling season?”
San Francisco, CA (June 4, 2018)– Grilling is synonymous with holidays, but according to a recent study – the 4thof July leads with 63% of Americans selecting it as their choice for bringing out the grill1, Memorial Day, Labor Day, Father’s Day, and Mother’s Day round out the top five. BBQ Bible Author and expert Steven Raichlen predicted back in 2015 that “Side dishes would move center stage” and they have done just that. According to the USA Today, potato salad makes the top 5 in foods to eat on the independence holiday2. Side Delights® offers a patriotic option with Red White and Blue Potato Salad, in addition to other recipes that can accompany a 4thof July BBQ, even some right on the grill, such as Grilled Potato and Arugula Salad. To speed up the time it takes to create these delicious salads, Side Delights®features its Steamables™ potato line. Steamables cooks up in the microwave in minutes, shortcutting the time it takes to boil potatoes for a salad. This speed scratch approach to cooking can be a real gem during busy summer evenings. Plus, microwave cooking doesn’t heat up an already warm kitchen in the summer as cooking in the oven or on the stove top does.
“While shoppers head to their favorite stores to select the perfect items for the holiday BBQ, they’re also looking for foods that save time,” said Kathleen Triou, President and CEO of Fresh Solutions Network. Value-added vegetables (such as pre-cut, pre-seasoned, side dishes) are in the top five produce items shoppers purchase around the holiday, because of the convenience they offer without sacrificing taste or quality.3
Side Delights® offers a wide variety of healthy, tasty potatoes including bagged, gourmet and organic, in addition to fresh cut, convenience, and potato kits. Potato product lines and innovative recipes for the holiday and beyond can be found at SideDelights.com.
