Get the recipe to this new summer classic and other standout sides

The meat may be the star of the barbecue, but without its supporting cast of side dishes ― salads, beans, breads, and desserts ― it would be a one-dimensional meal.

Great sides will add flair to your next potluck, barbecue, or casual meal with friends. Our classic dishes are a fresh take on some old favorites, from a zingy napa cabbage slaw to a spiced-up Southwestern-style cornbread.

They’re a perfect match with the barbecued ribs and brisket or your favorite grilled steak, fish, or chicken.
