Barbecue essentials rarely change. You always have your 3 main dishes: chicken, hamburgers and hotdogs. While everyone gets excited for the mains, I think the side dishes are always the best part. Side dishes are what tie a meal together, and I’ve compiled 3 unique dishes, that will give you a well-rounded summer barbecue.
Instead of the classic corn-on-the-cob, a corn salad is great substitution. Hot or cold, this side dish consists of a creamy texture, enhanced with chili flavoring. The rich mayo, lime juice and seasoning creates a spicy dressing, which pairs well with the cilantro. The corn mixed with red onion gives this salad the perfect crunch, and takes a total of 20 minutes to make.
Everyone needs a little spice to their barbecue, and this is the side dish that will do just that. From the hickory smoked barbecue sauce to the spicy sausage, this side dish is infused with so many fresh flavors. So before you decide to put out that bowl of baked beans, re-think that decision and try something new.
A barbecue needs at least one healthy side dish. Instead of coleslaw drenched in mayonnaise, try this cabbage salad lightly tossed in a sweet dressing. The ramen noodles will give your salad that extra crunch. So instead of the go-to romaine salad with tomatoes, cucumber and onion try this fun, fresh and colorful salad.
