Everyone needs a good side dish that will go with many types of meat and that's what we are going to talk about today.

It's still late summer here in Southern California and we are still grilling every chance we get.  Actually, we'll be grilling well into October as the weather tends to be warm.  So I wanted to make a rice dish to go with some shrimp and scallops we were grilling (recipe coming).  You know rice goes well with any type of meat.  But I wanted to jazz this up a bit.  Something sort of like a pilaf with veggies, or like a Caribbean confetti rice, but my style.  Thus,  Beth's Confetti Rice was born!

This side dish is perfect for late summer gatherings.  It goes well with pork, steak, fish, and chicken dishes whether they are grilled or baked or pan fried.  It's just a great compliment that you will want to eat over and over.

Enjoy!
