Summer Cookout Side Dishes

Summer Cookeout Sides Dishes

Summer Cookeout Sides Dishes are a must . They are more important they the main event . Here is my collection of sides that I enjoy.  It is only mid May but summer is here in south Louisiana. The temperatures have been in the 90’s for a few weeks so ready or not it is here. Summer weather means throwing some meat on the barbecue pit and everyone sitting outside soaking up some vitamin D. While the meat is the main attraction let’s not forget the yummy sides.  What would a cookout be without baked beans , some sort of salad or a cool creamy dessert? These are four of my favorite sides, at least one of this dishes make it to our cookouts no matter what.

Here are a few of my favorite Summer Cookeout Sides Dishes!

Baked Beans

The Angry Pig Baked Beans

It is like an unwritten rule that baked beans must be present with all barbecue, it is a must. The Angry Pig Baked Beans is a sweet and spicy mixture that we fell in love with. I took the basic baked beans recipe my mom taught me to make and just adjusted and it is delish!!

pasta salad

Zesty Pasta Salad Supreme

It’s hot here in the south so we always like a few cool salads. This Zesty Pasta Salad Supreme is tangy and has a nice balance of veggies, meat and cheese. I honestly can eat this as my entire meal in the summer, made with fresh cucumbers and tomatoes from my small garden.

strawberry slaw

Strawberry Lemon Coleslaw

This Strawberry Lemon Coleslaw is different and will convert a coleslaw hater into a coleslaw lover. It is sweet, tangy and savory all at once. I love the all of the flavors of this dish and it is always a huge hit.

strawberry cake

Strawberry Delight Ice Box Cake

As if you can’t tell I love strawberries!! This Strawberry Delight Ice Box Cake has been a family favorite for years . I actually started making this for crawfish boils, this cool creamy cake helped cool your taste buds down. When we boil crawfish they are super spicy , so this is a refreshing dessert.

These are some of my favorite summer sides. I hope you enjoy then as much as we do.
