Watermelon Salad

Nothing says ‘summer’ like nice juicy chunks of watermelon. Watermelon is really easy to prepare, and if you pick one of a decent size, you can feed a crowd pretty easily.


Potato Salad

This is a solid staple and is one of the most famous sides for BBQ. If your summer parties are anything like ours, guests descend on the BBQ like a hoard of gannets.



Another traditional barbecue favorite. Coleslaw is great as it can be eaten on its own as a BBQ side dish, or alternatively can be used to garnish burger and hotdog buns.

If you were struggling to think of sides for BBQ, you’d now have a pretty good idea. Anything that compliments your dish, brightens your plate, or freshens your palette is a good place to start. The main thing you need is for it to be easy.
