It’s only fitting to celebrate the unofficial end of summer, also known as Labor Day weekend, with a cookout. After all, you probably celebrated the unofficial start of summer—Memorial Day—by firing up the grill, right?
Every cookout needs an abundance of sides to go with the burgers, dogs, and chicken cooked up on the grill, and we have 21 crowd-pleasing sides for you. Choose from pasta salads, bean salads, fresh, seasonal veggie and fruit salads, and even the must-have-at-all-cookouts deviled eggs turned into a salad.
Of course, these delicious sides are good whenever you cook out, not just Labor Day weekend. Whenever you serve them, may we suggest you mix up a large pitcher of sparkling strawberry sangria to accompany your cookout dishes?
