No-Cook Side Dish Ideas
Not every side dish needs to be cooked and served hot from the oven. This no-cook Antipasto Salad is an easy side that is dressed with a delicious homemade red wine vinaigrette. Make it ahead of time and keep it in the fridge until you’re ready to eat.
It’s definitely one of those recipes that you wonder why you don’t make more often because it’s so tasty and goes with so many things.
Thanksgiving Side Dishes
Most people have some favorite family recipes that they always make for Thanksgiving, but who doesn’t want to shave some time off the prep work? That’s where these Make Ahead Mashed Potatoes come into play.
You can make these potatoes the day before IN THE SLOW COOKER! They taste just as good (if not better) the next day, plus you can rewarm them in the slow cooker which frees up oven and stovetop space for other things.
Want to add something extra special to your holiday meal? This Potato Gratin sounds fancy, but it’s actually really easy. Thinly sliced potatoes are baked with provolone cheese, mushrooms, fresh thyme and a bit of heavy cream.
This is a rich side dish that everyone will remember and ask for the next time you get together.
BBQ Side Dishes
Throwing some burgers on the grill tonight? Why not grill the rest of your meal while you’re out there? One of our go-to BBQ side dishes is this easy Grilled Zucchini recipe.
These simple grilled vegetables take just a few minutes to cook on the grill. No need to turn on the oven and heat up the house!
Add an Easy Vodka Drink
Every cook deserves a drink while they work! Reward your time in the kitchen with this simple vodka soda recipe.
A squeeze of lemon and a splash of elderflower liqueur makes this easy mixed drink a step above the rest.
