This is totally up to you! I love to eat green beans and even white beans because they’re delicious and filling. Feel free to treat your taste buds to whatever you want to have!

I’m also a huge fan of summer squash. I like to cook it up with a bit of olive oil and then top it with a touch of salt and pepper.

It’s hard to know for sure but I’d guess that pasta salad is right up there. It also depends a lot on what type of meat you’re eating. Grilled chicken and grilled pork chops tend to go with everything while beef can have a few varying options as well.
