just stuffed and grilled some poblanos in mexico....rice, lentils, simple sauteed veggies, queso....cut off tops wide like a pumpkin top,removed seeds, stuffed, replaced tops and grilled....as a twist and to have something smaller for guests to deal with,you could use halved anaheims with chorizo and shrimp (baked, not grilled),or jalapeno halves stuffed with chipotle cream cheese and bacon.. they are always fun!....chopped raw vegetable salad, roasted quinoa with lemon, xvoo and parsley (cold salad),curried israeli couscous salad simply with carrots, peas and celery. you can never go wrong with a platter of grilled vegetables...zucchini, yellow squash, red and orange peppers,onions etc. to me they are better at room temp drizzled with a balsamic wine redux,so you can grill them off earlier in the day....whatever you bring,just enjoy yourself...remember, its a party!
coupla others i like, even though you're loaded down with choices by now...caprese with baby fresh mozzarella, sweet cherry toms, basil pesto, baby spinach...greek orzo 'everything' salad...kalamatas, feta, s.d.toms, pine nuts, basil..just balsamic and xvoo...no hard and fast rules for it....its a whatever you got that goes together kinda salad
