7 Easy Summer Side Dishes

If you’re looking for a new, healthy side dish for your next bbq or cookout, scroll for plenty of tasty inspo. There are cold and warm sides, vegan and dairy free options or summer sides that go great with your favorite burger. Happy eating!

When summer rolls in there’s something in my body that just says “get outside, smell the fresh air and EAT!”.

Actually, Tim and I were just talking about all of our favorite summer foods like our all-time favorite side dish, onion rings. And not just any onion rings, Maine style, cracker crusted onion rings.

They’re delicious but probably not the best for you…

I’m turning the big 3-0 next week, so the older I get the better I try to be about eating.

In the summertime there’s still plenty of room to indulge but if you’re looking for a fresh and healthy summer side dish for a crowd (or 1!) keep scrolling.
