What do you serve with casseroles??

What side dishes could one serve (doesn't that sound so old-fashioned & proper??) with a casserole that has the meat, veggies & taters in it? Salad is an obvious answer, I guess, but I was looking for other options. Any suggestions?

Since the casserole already has meat, veggies, and starch you really have all your bases covered. How about a fruit to start? Maybe a fruit salad or grapefruit half?

I have moved this to the Casseroles forum.

Not knowing what kind of casserole it is you might want to introduce a new vegetable as a side. The obvious, like you said, is salad - I was going to say fruit but GB beat me to it.

I love to do a fruit salad (shredded lettuce on the bottom) and use either plain yogurt or vanilla yogurt as a topping/dressing.

These might sound strange but my mom use to make jello salads with fruit in them. She would also do a pear salad. I will post a few of the recipes under the salad section.

I like to make jello with 1 c of applesauce mixed in. It gives it an interesting, firmer texture, not so jiggly. I also like to mix bits of fresh fruit (mango, banana, strawberries, blueberries) or tiny marshmallows 1/2 way through the setting process.
