Of course, no cook out isn’t complete without side dishes and appetizers!

Let’s the short list of appetizers with coleslaw!

Why coleslaw?

Everyone is familiar with it and possibly even eats the dish.

Instead of using loads of mayo for your dish, use cider vinegar and sugar. This gives people a tangy taste and a break from all the savory meat and vegan hamburgers.

Use an even amount of sugar and vinegar to give a tart and saccharine taste.

Potato Salad

Almost everyone is a soft potato at heart, and that means potato salad is another key side dish.

But, put a spin on this classic one dish and grill the potatoes instead of steaming or boiling them.

Grilling the potatoes accentuates all the flavors. If you add a tangy spice such as lemon then it elevates the flavors to another level!

If you have meat eaters at a BBQ or cookout then add a side of bacon or ham. People can add it if they wish to have it.
