Side dish suggestions
Now that things are warming up in the Midwest, I'm itching to fire up the grill. I'm inviting a few friends over next weekend and want to make this:
But have no idea what to make for side dishes/snacks. Any suggestions? This is an informal affair, about 5 people :)
Grilled asparagus- give a generous sprinkle of very finely fresh grated parmesan over the top when done and still hot.
An acidic side salad to cut the spice and fat of the burgers- mixed greens with arugala, cherry tomatoes, cucumber, kalamata olives and a strong lemon vinegrette with black pepper (skip the salt since the kalamatas will take care of that)
+1 on the sweet potato fries
Root beer floats with root beer from your childhood and vanilla haagen dazs for dessert.
I would go with a vinegary cole slaw or even warm German potato salad (just made some last night & keep wondering why I don't make it more often). You need something to cut the richness & spice of the burgers & remoulade. Even quick pickled carrots & cukes would be good. Something fresh with a little crunch is nice too.
