Today I am sharing a dozen BBQ Sides and Salads, perfect accompaniments to any main dish you are grilling this weekend for Father’s Day or all summer long. Many can also be served as a vegetarian entrée. You will find a ton of ideas here to help you put together creative meals every time!
From a lovely broccoli salad with blueberries and apples to a turmeric potato salad, there are an abundance of ideas to spark your creativity. All recipes are guidelines that can be used to create your own versions. I seldom make a recipe the same way twice, leading to all kinds of fun experiments!
Consider using these recipes for picnics and potlucks all summer long. I know your family and friends will appreciate any of these recipes showing up and I’ll bet you go home with an empty container!

Many of these BBQ sides and salads are either naturally gluten-free or easily adapted. If you are cooking for someone with Celiac or high reactivity, be sure to use glass containers and stainless steel utensils when you are making the recipes. Wood and plastic (like cutting boards and containers) can trap minute traces of gluten, enough to cause illness for your family and guests. And be sure they are kept separate from the other foods so there is no chance of cross-contamination.
Enjoy these BBQ sides and salads ~ I hope they make appearances on your dinner table during the hot summer days ahead.
To convert any of these recipes to gluten-free, substitute GF ingredients where possible. If you have questions, you can find a lot of information by clicking on the “Gluten-Free” tab at the top of the page and you are welcome to contact me for more assistance.
