Question QUICK! What goes with warm cabbage & potato salad?

(Hoping I'm in the right thread - I'm in a super hurry with a 18 mos old soon to be waiting for supper! and this is my first post...)

I'm looking for ideas of a main dish that I can serve with a warm cabbage and new potato salad (made with avocados) that I have leftover. I made it to go with some Yukon Gold Potato Pork Sausage that I served 2 nights ago, but I didn't have time to think ahead. (mine does not have bacon in it - i'd post the recipe link, but i'm not allowed to yet :( )

So far, I'm thinking buttered carrots and some quick homemade skillet corn bread (per some ideas from this site, thanks!)...

but I'm at a loss for the main dish!

I don't have much meatwise either - ground beef, skinless chx strips or canned tuna. (Lots of grains/legumes though - chickpeas, lentils, split peas, beans, etc.)

Any ideas??? Thank you!!!

Chicken strips brushed with honey/dijon and baked?

I'd go with chicken strips - maybe sauteed in a bit of vermouth, butter, and some herbs.

Alix had a great idea or you could make creamed tuna over toast or just a plain tuna and mayo sandwich..My guys love tuna with potato salad and the cabbage slaw sound good with it as well..Hamburger patties are nice..All ideas easy and quick.

I would brown the hamburger with onion, salt and pepper and mix in the carrots after they are cooked. Loose meat - yum. Loose meat with with cabbage - YUM!

Thumbs up Thanks guys!

Awesome! I just had my partner pick me up some g-f dijon mustard and a new batch of local honey yesterday. So I think I'll go with the baked dijon chicken strip idea.

I found a recipe at MSL (Martha Stewart) for Creamy Mustard Chicken that I might modify a bit, but looks pretty fast.

And the cornbread is almost done!

Thanks everyone!
