Sides are the unsung heroes of the BBQ spread. Bright, refreshing, and veggie-packed, they balance out the richness of those ribs, burgers, and sausages. They also meet our (strict) potluck-dish criteria: They feed a crowd, travel nicely, and can be made in advance. Here’s our take on four beloved classics—a chickpea salad with herbs, sweet roasted peppers, and bright red wine vinegar; mustardy potato salad with crisp green beans; crunchy sesame slaw; and grilled corn salad with lots of lime and cilantro.
Having brunch in is in. The menu itself is best when it’s uncomplicated, and a bit of prep work ahead of time takes the stress level down. Brunch fare has four main categories: cocktails, coffee, savories, and sweets. Do a little something from each for a well-rounded spread. And once your guests leave (full and happy), you’ll still have the better part of the day left to keep soaking up that sweet weekend vibe.
Porridge is one of those universal foods. When we set out to create our G.Tox 7-Day Reset Kit, we knew we wanted to include a daily meal that encapsulated all the things we love about a classic porridge—something satisfying and simple to make, with lots of options for sweet and savory preparations.
