BBQ Side Dishes

There are certain side dishes that are practically mandatory at a barbecue: corn on the cob, potato salad, pasta salad and baked beans to name a few. These classics pair perfectly with a slab of ribs or a big, meaty burger and instantly make you think of summer. But if you want to take your bbq side dishes a bit further, we have options for you too. Try our peach-and-fennel slaw for a crunchy, sweet twist on a salad or make these spicy charred fava bean pods to get smoky flavor. Food & Wine's guide has all the recipes you need.

Red Potato Salads

Red potato salad can be prepared dozens of ways, most often by tossing chopped, boiled potatoes with a dressing made from mayonnaise or vinegar. We love to add mustard seeds, grated cauliflower, smoky bacon and peppery arugula to mix up this classic picnic side dish. Baby red potatoes are our favorite kind to use for potato salad--they're super tender, and you don't even have to peel them...just nick off any bad spots before boiling. Whether you prefer a classic mayonnaise dressing or want to try something a little lighter (try olive oil and herbs), these potato salad recipes are perfect for everything from backyard barbecues to family dinners.
