Need idea for a BBQ side dish

So my brother is throwing a big BBQ this Saturday with LOTS of people. We each have to bring a dish. I don't want to do the typical pasta salad/fruit salad/potato salad routine, so any other ideas? Thanks!

no pasta salad at all or you just don't want to bring a run-of-the-mill salad?

Well it's technically a pasta salad but I really love this one for something different.

Recipes : Spinach Artichoke Pasta Salad : Food Network

My kids hate it so I never get to make it.

It'll be hamburgers/hot dogs, and bbq chicken. My brother will be making that, and the rest of us will be bringing the sides.

How about some marinated grilled veggies? Cut bell peppers into quarters, onions into 1/2-inch thick slices, and zucchini into 1/4-1/2-inch thick planks. Marinate for at least an hour in a mixture of lemon juice, garlic, olive oil, minced thyme or rosemary, salt and pepper, then grill till soft and caramelized.
