What is the perfect side dish to serve with a BBQ? it is to go with marinated pork chops.
Would you pick a green salad, potato salad, pasta salad, grilled corn or something else?
Do you have a favourite one you stick to, please share.

I like the sound of that salad, the only change for me would be no nuts. I am getting used to taking them out of most things since SIL has a nut allergy. I looked at fresh asparagus but it did not look great, might take another look in a few weeks as the weather warms up. We are moving towards salad weather.

I should have included a bean salad on the list. I kind of grab cans of beans or mean mixes and like to make it the day before. Nice and simple. Here is the base one I do. Can be added to easily

Well, if it was just for me I'd pick potato salad. *LOL* If DH was involved it would probably be corn on the cob. If I was just grabbing something it would be a can of French cut green beans. Aren't I a huge help? *ROFL*

Well before diet I'd go for the potato salad or pasta salad, now I'd pick the salad or grilled corn. I'd still make one of the other salads for the kids and dh though.

Lol Susanne. All ideas help. I think everyone loves potato salad, I know I do. I like trying all different versions, but usually come back to a simple one.

We so need a good quality fruit and veggie store NOT the supermarkets where you have no idea how old it all is. I can't wait for the tomato lady to drive into town soon.
