You could do a  24 hour salad. It's peas, cauliflower (chopped) ,bacon (chopped), lettuce (chopped), shredded parmesean cheese (or you coud use cheddar) & mayo mixed. Put it in the fridge once mixed for 24 hours. Really good.

I've seen a recipe for salad served in the large cooked pasta shells, just grab and go.

Deviled eggs are a must do .. they are great dressed up with a bit of horse radish or wasabi

Cold soup. Gazpacho is fabulous or a nice cucumber one.

Delicious ideas, thank you!

I liked the meat joke but it is true some people do want to upstage the host... I have read stories before I started posting.

That sounds like my friend, his side dish to ribs would be bacon, more ribs then 3 kinds of potatoes then more potatoes.... I have seen him dip his fries into mashed potatoes.

hmmm . . . that sounds like a 7-layer salad all mixed up instead of layered. It is good.



(Except that you only have 6 ingredients listed. For the life of me I can't remember the 7th layer. :-\)

I make a version of this with broccoli instead of cauliflower and with some sunflower seeds thrown in. I usually toss in just a bit of sugar and some vinegar to give it additional POP! I love that I can make it ahead.

I could have sworn I posted my broccoli salad in here recently, because it's my go-to dish.  But you chop florets, add in golden raisins, bacon, chopped red onion, sunflower pellets (not the unshelled things, the little kernels) and then dress it with mayo mixed with a little vinegar and sugar.  There's a ton of them online if you google, and this thing is a hit wherever I take it.

I make longganisa (Filipino sweet sausage) all the time.  The traditional sides are steamed rice and fresh diced tomatoes (they balance the flavors of the longganisa very nicely).  Yes, I realize steamed rice is not a typical bbq side (actually, you probably could/would expect to find it at a Filipino bbq).  Garlic fried rice is good, too.  The thing about longganisa is that it is a very strongly-flavored sausage.  A good side for that is something that complements the strong flavors.  While I wouldn't recommend serving pasta as a side to longganisa, I'll admit I've never tried to either.

Someone suggested deviled eggs, which is always a crowd pleaser.  I've never had a time I've made deviled eggs, and people weren't happy to see them.

Since it sounds like there are asian flavors how about a cold sesame noodle salad?  I find they go great with asian style ribs and it's not the typical side.

Green onions? I don't like onions so I don't put them in.

That reminded me of this, which would also be a good side:

Sugar for the seventh layer.....or at least that's what my mom uses.
