It’s August and the eating is good.  When it comes to dining, there was never a better time to savor Mother Nature’s best.  Backyard gardens and local farmer’s markets are flush with fresh produce.  And grills are fired up and ready for great barbecues.  Here’s a fresh side dish that pairs our favorite grain with sweet fresh corn and other veggies.  Serve it with grilled burgers, chicken or steak.  Delicious!
