    Broccoli-bacon salad or just a big green salad with lettuce, bell peppers, cucumbers, kalamata olives, cherry tomatoes, and feta cheese.

    I usually bring plates, drinks and my appetite. I let the cooking be handled by more competent chefs.

    I have a special cookout dish. Ever since I was small, my gran has made something called “cabbage noodles”. Very simple. Egg noodles (cooked al dente’), sauteed onion, fresh cabbage, and butter. Fix cabbage how you like best (we cook with water until tender, then give a little fry in butter at the end), saute onions, put with cooked noodles, add butter. They are good hot or cold. Maybe not regular BBQ food but a family tradition :-)
