Hi! I’m looking for ideas for bbq side dishes? My little family always goes to my mother in-laws on Sundays and we bbq for supper. My father in law always buys the meat, so I’m wondering what I can be making for a side dish instead of getting Cesar salad packs and pre made potato salad. Please send ideas? Cheap meals, we like pasta salad, potatoes my brother-in-law likes his cauliflower. It’s to feed five adults and left overs preferably 🙂

thank for the original creator Maryann Quewezance

  1. Pasta salad – farfalle noodles, ranch dressing, broccoli florets, cherry tomatoes halved, black olives halved, crumbled bacon, Monterey jack cheese

  2. Cold pan-roasted green beans with lemon pepper. Cold are delicious.
    Same with Asparagus
    Roasted cauliflower
    Stuffed mini peppers
    Blistered peppers medly-delicious on beef.
    Quinoa salad with Roasted veg
    Roasted veg.

  3. Mix chopped cauliflower, frozen peas, chopped chunks(small) cheese with ranch dressing(can add other fresh veggies as well). Or make a taco salad, layer chopped lettuce, taco meat, red beans, shredded cheese, crushed Dorito chips. Then mix taco sauce and Western dressing for the sauce. Pour sauce over salad and mix until all is coated!


    2 20 oz cans of pineapple tidbits drained
    1 8 oz tub of Cool Whip thawed
    1 8 oz brick of softened cream cheese
    1 1/2 cups smashed up pretzels
    1 stick melted butter
    1/3 cup sugar

    Melt the butter and add the sugar and stir it up real good. Put the smashed up pretzels on a cookie sheet lined with foil. Dump the butter mixture on that and shove it in a 400 degree oven for 7 minutes. Take it out and let it cool.

    While all that mess is happening, combine the Cool Whip and cream cheese in a mixer and buzz it up real good. Add the drained pineapple and mix it all up.

    Dump the cooled pretzel bits up in there and stir it around real good. Put it in a nice dish and put it in the fridge for a bit.

Let cool, spread a mix of 1 package cream cheese, a package of ranch dip powder and 1 cup of sour cream, cover with raw vegetables cut into small pieces, the one i had was broccoli, cucumber and carrots. It was super yummy. You could use whatever veg you like.

    I cube potatoes with the skin on. Use any kind of potato you like. I put them in a microwave safe container and add some cubes of butter. Cover them and cook until soft. Add Italian dressing and parm cheese while the potatoes are still hot. These can be made ahead of time and reheated in the microwave.
