Memorial Day is often considered the unofficial kickoff of summer, and that means it’s the kick off to cookout season too. Unless of course, you live in the South, and you’ve been cooking out regularly since March. If you’re fortunate to have the day off and beautiful weather to boot, we’re here to help you plan out the side dishes you’ll be serving for your Memorial Day cookout. We’ll leave the easy part to you (the main course, of course). But we’ve rounded up some awesome options that pair well with a plethora of entrées, including burgers, steaks, and barbecue.
Whether you’re looking for something rich and decadent, like Macaroni with a Potato Chip Crust, or something light and refreshing like a Chilled Grilled Corn and Watermelon Salad, you’ll find it here. Paula has the best sides for a cookout ready and waiting for you. What will you be making?
Of course, Memorial Day isn’t about the cookouts and days off—it’s about the heroes that gave their lives for this great country. May you be ever grateful for the freedoms afforded by our brave servicemen and women, and may God bless America!
