Side dishes for jerked main dish
I've never made a jerk main dish so what summer sides would you recommend? I have watermelon on hand atm and have a hankering for corn salad.
The classic accompaniment is Rice and Peas, Fried Plantains, Festivals, Simple Vegetable Preps
How about a corn, tomato & avocado salad? Just made one the other night and it was delicious, with a honey lime chili dressing.
I also like a sweet counter to the spicy jerk...you can make a watermelon & mango salsa.
Rice is the traditional accompaniment. They mix white rice with peas. It's very filling & starchy.
I make cole slaw. The jerk sauce I use is very spicy and the cole slaw kind of cools things down.
