AllSpice Summer Side Dish Competition – We’re Be-Side Ourselves

LifeMadeSweeter_Caprese-Pasta-SaladWe’re be-side ourselves with a contest we’re doing this week.

We’ve been thinking: our readers and customers are some of the most creative food lovers around.  When we’re tagged on their Instagram photos and Facebook posts, we’re so proud to see our ingredients used in their cooking. And, without fail, we get hungry thinking about how good those dishes and desserts look!

That gave us an idea: We want to hear about your go-to side dish.

  • What do you take to a neighbor’s barbecue?
  • What do folks always request you bring to the get-together (and don’t say paper towels, lol)?
  • What’s the one dish you make that your family expects at dinner when the thermometer rises?
  • What’s your favorite recipe you make when summer’s fruits and vegetables are in season and absolutely ripe?

Tastebook_tomato-bean-corn-salad-squareThis week, we want to see your best summer side dish recipe!

Send your tastiest, best summertime side ideas to us at (and put “Summer Sides” in the subject line to make it foolproof for us to find it) before next Saturday, July 30.

Recipes will be judged on tastiness, ease of preparation, and innovative use of Allspice herbs, spices, blends, vinegars, and oils. We’ll announce a winner on Saturday, August 13.

Prize:  The winner will get a $25 gift card, a shout out in our newsletter, and a hallowed place in our recipe collection.
