- Robin's Top Memorial Day Sides
When I make side dishes, I don’t wrangle with lots of ingredients. Sides should burst with color and flavor and complete a meal with flair (no steamed peas please).
I wrote these side-dish delights with Memorial Day in mind because they’re perfect for parties. In my new cookbook, Robin Takes 5 (out in November), there are 500, 5-ingredient recipes. Salt, pepper and olive oil are the only staples, and the same is true here! And they’re all darn good. Enjoy them as quick weeknight sides or at your next backyard bash.
