      How about a different slaw you can make with broccoli slaw? So many variations!

      Potato salad would be good, too...esp. if warm rather than cold.

        You just made my mouth water for some warm German Potato Salad. It would also go well with the pork.

          Baked beans, potato salad, macaroni salad, steak fries, mac-n-cheese, baked potato loaded with cheese.

              All of these suggestions are great and I want some of everything on my plate (not the beer, that goes in a plastic cup.)
              What are you serving for dessert?

                These are dishes to be served before a "wine tasting" The dessert will be a cheese course.

                  Dessert has to be banana pudding!

                  How about a tri-colored pasta salad? I've used this before with pulled pork w/slaw.

                  I make mine with tri-colored pasta, italian salad dressing, cubed cheese (you can use cheddar, swiss or anything you like - even a mix of cheeses), olives, pimentos and a little diced green pepper. Gives great flavor and great color.
