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 

BBQ side salads

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

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

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
