8 Barbecue Sides Perfect for a Potluck

Black-Eyed Pea Tomato Salad

She was very expert at making this salad of black-eyed peas. It's a great substitute for pasta or potato salad and quite simple to create. To make it a stand-alone meal, add cooked cubed chicken breast.

Grandma’s Creamy Potato Salad

The finest potato salad is made by my grandma; she never follows a recipe! I watched her as she combined "a little of this and a little of that" and wrote down a somewhat accurate recipe for creamy potato salad.

Cherry Tomato Pasta with Avocado Sauce

The heart-healthy avocado in this spaghetti dish gives it a decadent feel without being too heavy. It tastes so good you'll swear there's cream hidden in the rich sauce. Although it lacks dairy and guilt.

Make-Ahead Hearty Six-Layer Salad

My favorite salad of all time is this one. Whenever I need a dish to pass, I get the recipe. It looks amazing, is simple to create, and can be assembled in advance.

Watermelon Feta Flag Salad

More festive than barbecue sides! Our family makes a watermelon dish in the shape of the flag to commemorate the Fourth of July. This is an authentically red, white, and blue centerpiece that is all-American.

Favorite Bread & Butter Pickles

Growing up, I cooked these pickles and I enjoy how versatile they are to eat with almost everything. My two kids now adore these pickles as well. I believe you will love them just as much as we do!

Pressure-Cooker Summer Squash

Although we adore squash, I grew tired of making the same old squash and cheese dish. I made the decision to add bacon and seasoned croutons to liven it up a little. The family loved this very much. 

Grilled Veggies with Caper Butter

Grill-friendly BBQ sides are our favorite. And we relish the spicy, sharp flavor of capers. Nobody enjoys a boring vegetable, and peppers, squash, and zucchini shine when paired with caper butter.
