    Grilled tuna side dish needed please.......

    I am making grilled tuna with a garlic aioli this weekend and am looking for something different as a side dish. I normally make risotto but just want to make something different this time.

    Any suggestions as all of you generally come to the rescue with great ideas.

    Thanks much!

    How about grilling some baby bok choy along side your tuna? It is our go-to vegetable. Or grilled romaine or radicchio? I will be watching this thread, always need additional side ideas!

    Big green salad,
    grilled asparagus,
    sweet potato fries (I sometimes even use Kettle's sweet P chips),
    Wilted spinach salad,
    roasted beets,
    green beans (roasted or steamed)

    We usually do a a room temp soba noodle and vegetable salad (can't remember where the recipe is from, Epicurious maybe?)' or baby bok choy in garlic sauce. Also Green Giant makes a frozen vegetable combo that we love with seared tuna, that has edamame, black beans and carrots.

    I don't know how your weather is, but it's hot here! The first thing I thought of was a cold white bean salad.

    I know some people don't like okra, but I love it. And grilled whole okra pods are delicious. Also would be good in the aioli.
