Craving For Some BBQ? Don’t Overlook These Easy Sides for BBQ Ribs

BBQ Ribs always hit the spot. There’s just something about the sweet yet spicy sticky sauce that leaves you wanting more. Maybe that’s why during bbq parties, ribs get gobbled down at an inhumane speed. After all, everyone loves ’em!

But do you know what goes great with ribs? Side dishes. (appetizers for some)
That is why in this blog, we’ve compiled a list of seven of the best sides for ribs. We promise that once you get a taste of them, you’ll keep coming back for more.

What Are The Best Sides for Ribs?

Let’s say you’re throwing a bbq party for your loved ones. You probably already have the racks of ribs all prepped and ready to go. But if you want to enhance your party and turn it into a full-on fiesta, try whipping up the following sides instead.

Fried Green Tomatoes

Now, we know what you’re probably thinking: fried green tomatoes?
And yes. Trust us; these tomato slices are crispy and succulent at the same time.
Green tomatoes, in general, might seem firm, unripe, and extremely sour (which they are), but when you fry them to golden-brown perfection? Ugh! They’re to die for, especially with sweet bbq ribs.

Mac & Cheese Casserole

Combine mac & cheese with a casserole. What do you get? An insanely mouth-watering side for ribs. It starts off simple enough, with a basic cream roux for the mac & cheese, but then you add heaps of cheddar and parmesan cheese to enhance the creamy texture. Pop it in the oven with panko breadcrumbs and shredded cheese on top to get a heavenly comfort casserole in return.

Crispy Corn Fritters

You already know that corn is an essential part of a barbeque. Although sometimes, you just want to take things up a notch and experiment with different recipes. That is why these corn fritters are the perfect addition to your bbq ribs. They’re crispy and crunchy on the outside, especially after having been pan-fried. But on the inside? Warm, gooey, and sweet.

Tangy Black Bean & Mango Salad

If you’re looking for a gluten-free side, look no further. This scrumptious black bean and mango salad covers all the bases. It’s sweet, tangy, and super easy to make! Plus, this salad is also low in calories, so you don’t have to fret about your intake either. All you have to do is toss black beans, bell peppers, fresh mangoes, chopped scallions, cilantro, and jalapeno together. Then just drizzle over some lime juice and olive oil for a zesty dressing.

Southern Style Hush Puppies

Hush puppies are deep-fried balls of cornmeal dough that go exceptionally well with ribs. Made with buttermilk, diced green onions, eggs, and milk, hush puppies are extremely crispy but delicate at the same time.

Rainbow Slaw

Your BBQ party will pass with flying colors if you make this rainbow coleslaw. Not only can you prepare it in a jiffy, but it also adds an aesthetic charm to your buffet table. Just throw in a handful of shredded purple cabbage, colorful bell peppers, carrots, and snow peas together. For the dressing, you can opt for the classic sweet-and-sour vinaigrette for that kick of flavor.

Couscous Tabbouleh Salad

Last but not least, our middle eastern star: The Couscous Tabbouleh Salad.
This salad has its roots in the middle-eastern cuisine and will have you licking your spoon for another bite. The fluffiness of the couscous pearls goes so well with the minty tabbouleh. Not to mention, the citrus dressing, paired with tomatoes, cucumbers, and other fresh herbs, blends together to create a harmony of delectable flavors.
