Sunday Inspiration {Veggie Side Dishes}

Cucumber Tomato Salad 1

I love me some roasted green beans and this kicked up version looks amazing.

Fall is right around the corner. Get some butternut squash in your life.

I’m not a huge asparagus fan but cover it in feta and I’m totally on board.

These eggplant bites look like crispy perfection.

I’ve made this Mexican street corn several times. Totally yum.

Get your Chinese takeout fix with this healthy cauliflower fakeout.

We went to Rib Fest a couple weeks ago and had the best, slightly sweet coleslaw that I just haven’t be able to get out of my mind. This looks like a great version.

This magic broccoli is another tried and true recipe.

Healthy veggie side dish? No. Mouthwatering? Yes.

Drooling over these sweet potato wedges with bacon vinaigrette. Yep. BACON VINAIGRETTE.

Yet another recipe we love. Parmesan and black pepper zucchini is on point (do people still say that?).

Easter Side Dish Round Up

Yesterday I brought a round up of desserts that would be perfect for Easter. Today I thought I would bring you a collection of tasty side dishes that will totally make your meal.

I have to start it out with the perfect hard boiled egg. We always make a morning of dying Easter eggs so the night before I boil a dozen eggs so we are ready to go the next day. Then when Easter rolls around, we make either deviled eggs or deviled egg macaroni salad with them.

Hawaiian Sweet Rolls are amazing with ham so they would be perfect for Easter. The ones pictures below were made for sandwiches so I would make them smaller (you’ll get 24 out of the batch) when serving them as a side.

I think cheesy potatoes always have a place at the dinner table, but especially with ham. If you are a classic mashed potato kind of person, these Buttermilk and Feta Mashed Potatoes would be right up your alley. If calories didn’t count, Creamy Cheesy Potatoes would be my life. If you’re looking for a chilled side dish, Loaded Baked Potato Salad would be the perfect meal accompaniment. I just want to face plant into that bowl of goodness.

Roasted vegetables have become my jam. I made these roasted green beans recently and I absolutely adore them. Another plus, they are super easy and quick to throw together. It’s always nice to have a healthy option among all the calorie laden sides. Honey Balsamic Roasted Carrots are another great, simple vegetable side dish that your guests would inhale.roasted green beans 1

I love a cucumber salad and when it comes to Easter, I finally feel like we can break out the cool salads that are just so refreshing. This Cucumber Tomato Salad is all of those things and so visually appealing. Look at the colors!
