Summer isn’t over yet and there is still time to enjoy time with family and friends at a backyard bbq! I have 41 Sides for Your Backyard BBQ for you today.
Just a little bit ago, I showed you how to host a hot dog bar which will go great with all of the sides I am sharing today. I used Ball Park’s new line of Premium Beef Franks called Ball Park Park’s Finest for my hot dog bar. They are a great option for your BBQ. The come in five outstanding flavors -Slow Cooked Chili, Jalapeño Cheddar, Signature Seasoned, Slow Smoked Hickory, and Cracked Dijon Mustard.
When I have a bbq, I always focus on 3 items for my sides – salads, dips, and fruit. Fruit can be pretty straight forward, but it is always even better if you have a tasty dip to serve it with. It is also great to utilize in a salad too. Then I like to serve tasty dips along with a variety of chip.
In order to keep things that need to be chilled cold, full a larger bowl half way with ice, that place your serving bowl inside the larger bowl. I have also seen this done on a larger scale but filling a small kiddie pool with ice for everyone to place their salads, etc. in.
Classic salads like potato, pasta, and coleslaw are always great to include. The kids always tend to love those. Then it is always fun to have some other salads beyond the classics.
