Easy BBQ Sides – 8 ideas
I love a BBQ do you? And I also love BBQ sides especially sides I can make in advance that are delicious. It’s so great to be able to just grab from the fridge all prepped and ready to go
I find that if I prep them in advance, then I too can enjoy the BBQ especially if it’s for a few people or a BBQ party
Sit back relax and enjoy, that’s the ticket
So here we go –
8 delicious Barbecue Side dishes:
1. The Best Potato Salad
No BBQ is complete without a fantastic potato salad
This one is banging and it alleviates the need to boil any potatoes on the actual day of the BBQ – just grab it from the fridge
I love a bit of preplanning – recipe here
2. Easy Asian Slaw
This vegan / non dairy Coleslaw dish is perfect
It you make it with purple cabbage it’s bright and fresh – love it!
Just look at the colours – it’s also zingy and limey. You can add as little or as much chilli as you like
I promise it’s so so good – Recipe here
3. Easy Avocado & Sweetcorn Salsa
I love this salad and make it all the time and not just as a BBQ side
I love it and it’s so so good for you – look at all those colours, so delicious
Here it’s served with my Lime Chicken which is also very tasty
4. Easy Greek Pasta Salad
Here’s a take on the traditional Greek Salad and here I just add pasta to make it more of a lovely fulling dish and it feeds an army!
It’s super simple just look at those colours again
It’s perfect for BBQ sides season
5. Cauliflower Rice Salad
So this cauliflower rice trend was big a few year ago – especially for people trying to curb the carbs
I really like it, especially if you pack it with flavoursome additions and I love cauliflower anyway – so give it a go maybe
6. Easy Tomato & Mozzarella Salad
Always a favourite and its so flipping delicious. I eat this on it’s own as a meal
However it also works really well at a BBQ when you don’t fancy all the meat
7. Pasta Salad with Salami & Roquefort
This is a little different and always goes down a storm
A lovely blend of pasta, salami and black olives, packed full of flavour and a filler of bellies
8. Chickpea Salad, with avocado & artichokes
This is a delicious BBQ side and also works well if you have vegan or vegetarian guests as it fits the bill there too
It’s so good, the blend of chickpeas with artichokes lemon juice ce and oil as well as all the other ingredients really is very tasty
Go on have a go – I promise you’ll love it
So there you have it my favourite BBQ salad or sides
There are many more however I thought I’d put them all in one place for you
