Grilled meats are the main attraction of any cookout, however, a true barbecue only comes together with side dishes that complement the star of the show. With these great barbecue side dishes you'll provide your guests fun, exciting and flavorful dishes they'll love piling onto their plate. Here's what to make:
Watermelon and Shrimp Salad
Use watermelon as a base for a tantalizing salad (pictured above) made with sautéed shrimp, mozzarella, basil and a splash of fresh lemon juice.
Fancy Deviled Eggs
Kick up your barbecue with a batch of extraordinary deviled eggs. This delightful side dish doubles as an appetizer and is made with various fillings including avocado, cream cheese, capers and herbs.
Tomato Salad with Parmesan Cheese
Here's a mouthwatering barbecue side dish that's great with grilled meats, burgers and kebabs. We love the spiciness of arugula and the earthiness of radicchio in this colorful summer salad.
While you'd still have to fire up the oven to make focaccia from scratch, this authentic Italian recipe is so worth it. Use focaccia to soak up the juices from grilled meats and veggies.
We are fond of this stuffed avocado recipe because it's rich and satisfying thanks to creamy gorgonzola and walnuts. It's just the thing to serve alongside a juicy grilled steak or barbecued pork chops.
