Sides to go with...

Next weekend a group of 10 of us are going for a river boat ride and we are having the gang over for supper afterwards. I am making Goodweed's Boston Butt with BBQ sauce (his recipe) and cole slaw with great rolls. A friend is bringing dessert. What else would you think would go well? I'd like one more thing on the plate. Maybe just some sliced tomatoes?

Sliced tomato is a refreshing side. You could also consider baked beans, macaroni or potato salads. A big bowl of potato chips could also go with that meal.

All three are great suggestions. I personally like slaw and bean with my BBQ.

At a recent party with that kind of a menu, I served a big platter of sliced perfectly ripe tomatoes, alternating with slices of thin cut red onion, thin cut fresh mozzarella, sprinkled with ribbons of fresh basil, and simply dressed with EVOO and balsamic vinegar. The platter looked so pretty next to all the heavy food and it was a real hit. A silver pie server helped with people helping themselves.

A good sweet & sour three bean salad is very good with this meal as well.

kayelle..."ribbons of fresh basil"? How do you do that? Sounds like a beautiful side dish.

Another suggestion is roasted sweet potato fries or roasted veggies (in oven at 500 degrees for 20 minutes). They are still good served at room temperature.

I agree. That was going to be my suggestion. I particularly like a Black Bean Salad from the Bush's website.

http://vegetablewithmore.allrecipes....px?nprid=63871

The only things that I do different from the original recipe is: I add an additional can of black beans to make the recipe go farther and I seed and devein a jalapeno pepper, dice it fine and add it to the salad with the rest of the vegetables.

Thanks to all of you for some great suggestions. We are now 12 people (where am I going to put them all???)
Molly, you stack the basil leaves (fresh) and roll them up lengthwise, then slice across to make ribbons.
