The first time I bought green garbanzos at the Pro’s Ranch Market in Albuquerque, I looked online for information and found out they’re mixed with chile and lime in Mexico and called guisana. Because chayote and radishes are also commonly mixed with chile and lime I decided to put them all together in a salad and the results were wonderful. You can substitute frozen shelled edamame in this recipe if you can’t find green garbanzo beans.

Here is a tropical change from the usual celery seed coleslaw. Allow the dressing to sit as long as possible to build up the heat. From the article Mango Madness!
Flynt Payne, Executive Chef at the Inn of the Anasazi in Santa Fe, New Mexico, offers a unique side dish recipe which combines unusual flavors with fabulous results. The vinaigrette can be made in advance.
You should make small batches of the dressing because the avocado will discolor slightly on the second day; however, it is so good and so versatile, that it probably won't last that long anyway. Using Champagne vinegar adds zest without the harshness associated with other types of vinegars. You can also serve the dressing over cooked chilled vegetables, such as freshly cooked asparagus or artichokes.
A simple marinade and quick grilling on a salt block makes for a fast and tasty side dish that pairs well with any entrée. Note: This recipe requires advance preparation. Read the entire article on salt block cooking by Mike Stines here.

Grilled Asparagus and Squash
Total Time: about 20 minutes
A vegetable basket is the best way to grill the major ingredients for this salad. Toss the salad together just before serving or the warm potatoes will absorb all the dressing! You could also allow the potatoes to cook first.
Do not peel the peaches. The chipotle chile adds a nice hint of heat and smoke to this spectacular way to end a great meal off the grill. An interesting variation is to substitute Stilton cheese for the goat cheese. From the article "Perfectly Pungent Peaches" by Dave DeWitt here.

Remember this rule: the firmer the banana, the better it grills. Ripe bananas turn to mush, fall through the grill and embarrass the cook. You can start this dessert while eating the entree, and it will be ready when you are. You can also use aluminum foil over the grill rather than the aluminum pan, if you wish.
