screw salad. kids like it, especially the "fun" rotini pasta, it will keep just fine in hot weather, it's real easy to make (though it does need some settling time) but most importantly, it's downright delicious!

Couscous with chopped mixed pepper and olive oil!
Coleslaw's great too. Could always do home spiced potatoe wedges and a sour cream dip.

Those sausages sound amazingly tasty - have fun at the cookout!

I'd go with pasta salad, potato salad, and cole slaw. Veggie tray. I'd skip the French Fries--maybe do some zucchini fries, but not French fries.

IMHO old fashioned baked beans go great with sausages of any kind and they always go over well.

If you're going to baked beans, you might want to cook them in a crockpot (and put it on a screen porch or in the garage) since they take so long to cook. I seem to recall a number of crockpot baked beans recipes on DC. Unless you live somewhere where it is blessedly cool at this time of year. Baked beans are off my menu until the fall--I like to do them in the oven.
