Side with Grilled Pork

Hi there. I've been invited to a friend's this weekend and asked to bring a side dish. They are serving grilled pork. I want to do something a little different than the standard potato or pasta salad. Anyone have any suggestions/recipes for a tasty summer side that will go well with grilled pork?

  1. Maybe Orzo with Everything would be nice...it's been really well-received at every function I've brought it to:

    1. How about coleslaw? Not the awful overly mayonaissed stuff you normally get, but something with an asian twist, or maybe even something with apples?

      1. re: firecooked

        I had a party two weeks ago. We did a pork roast on the grill and one of the sides was red cabbage cole slaw with red onions, carrots, caraway seeds and a vinegar dressing (with just a touch of sugar); it went exceptionally well.

      2. fresh berry salad would be great right now. Fresh local strawberries, rasberrys and blueberries. I also love grilled peaches with grilled pork, they go together very nicely.

        1. Try making Coleslaw salad with an honest cooked dressing. OMgosh, a cooked dressing? Yepper Then after you tossed, add a shredded ( or large grated) Granny Smith apple or two.

          1. Asian slaw with green cabbage, toasted almonds, sesame seeds, and ramon noodles.
