What's the first thing that pops into your head when you hear the word barbecue? My guess is that it has something to do with meat and proteins. Am I right? Two of my favourite foods to grill on the BBQ are chicken and pork. There's something about digging into a perfectly grilled pork chop that makes my mouth water. However, we sometimes host guests who are vegetarian and in fact, my husband has recently made efforts to convert to a whole food diet. So what can I make on the grill that the kids will love and vegetarian guests will love, too? Last week, I was able to pose this very question to the talented celebrity Chef Corbin Tomaszeski on the final leg of his culinary barbecue tour across Canada. We met up in Pickering for the last Walmart tailgate of the season to try out a fabulous new recipe the whole family will enjoy - Grilled Peach Salad.

In case you haven't heard, something is a-buzz in the aisles of Walmart. It carries 100% Canadian-raised Angus beef, Maple Leaf chicken, Canadian salmon and fresh produce, making it your neighbourhood spot for one-stop shopping.

With a commitment to provide high quality and locally sourced fresh foods, Walmart Canada has teamed up with Chef Corbin to help tackle our barbecue woes. Whether you're looking for dinner-time inspiration or kid-approved meals, you can visit the Walmart Canada Youtube channel for ideas. Not sure what to try first? Allow me to recommend this delicious vegetarian side dish with a kick:


'Tis the season for peaches and let me tell you, the grilled peach salad was incredible. I had never tried peaches on the grill before and I wasn't so sure I'd like them dressed with chopped jalapeño peppers, but it was the perfect pairing between heat and sweet. And if you're worried your kids will find it too hot, Chef Corbin pointed out that the pepper itself isn't as hot as the seeds, which are really hot. Or you can easily omit the jalapeños altogether.

Looking back on the tailgate, I feel like I have discovered a whole new side of Walmart. Crowds of families with their little soccer stars lined up to sample barbecued chicken, steaks, hotdogs and fresh produce from the store, many signalling their approval with a thumbs up. It only made sense for me to stop by the Walmart across the way to pick up some groceries for my next BBQ on my way home. Plus, it's reassuring that they back up their quality promise with 100% guarantee. If you're not satisfied, you can bring in your receipt for a full refund.

On a final note, I'd like to thank Chef Corbin for sharing his delicious recipe and culinary skills.
