It’s not a picnic without all those yummy salads and sides, so here are 12 Easy Summer Picnic Salads and Side Dishes that’ll have everyone coming back for more!
From Memorial Day to the 4th of July to Labor Day and everything in between, these summer salads and sides go perfectly with grilled burgers, hot dogs, chicken, ribs, steaks, or whatever else is on your menu!
All of these salad and side dish recipes are my favorites from right here on the blog that I make all summer long, whether it’s for a holiday picnic or barbecue with family and friends or a simple weeknight cookout for just the two of us.
There’s something for everyone on this list. I’ve got macaroni salad, pasta salad, potato salad, coleslaw, veggie salads, corn on the cob, and more. And the best part is they’re all simple to make and taste absolutely delicious!
So without any further ado, here they are!
I hope you found a few you’d like to try. You really can’t go wrong with any of them!
