Side dish with Buffalo Wings

I'm making a slightly health conscious baked buffalo wing tonight. I'd like the side dish to also be pretty healthy. Any ideas or recommendations?

A salad would be a nice contrast to the hot wings.

Traditionally buffalo wings are served with only celery and blue cheese or ranch. Maybe some kind of celery salad or a broccoli slaw with shaved broccoli and celery.

Oven baked onion rings would work, but fried onion rings would work better . I've seen recipes for oven-baked using panko, never tried them though.

Since bleu cheese is usually involved with wings, how about a bleu cheese coleslaw...or a wedge of lettuce with bleu cheese dressing with carrots and celery scattered about or rimming the plate?

Or Ranch instead of bleu cheese?

With Buffalo Chicken Wings? That seems really odd to add stir fry to a down home bar food.
