With BBQ season upon us, it’s time to get outside with friends and family. If you’ve got a cookout lined up, remember that people love BBQ sides as much as the main course. 
At CreditBox, we’re always looking for money-saving tips and ideas to make your life better. We’ve pulled together a list of five BBQ recipes—side dishes from grilled corn on the cob to potato salad or grilled zucchini—sure to thrill the crowd you’re feeding.

Grilled Corn on the Cob

If you’re going for classic BBQ recipes this summer, don’t miss the sweet, crunchy goodness of grilled corn on the cob. Shuck the corn and throw it on the heated grill. When the cobs are tender, brush with butter and season with salt and pepper.

Potato Salad

Choose your favorite style of potato salad, but make sure this classic side dish is part of your summer BBQ. Whether you prefer the traditional potato and egg recipe or want to add mustard and pickles for an extra kick, make sure you have plenty on hand for your guests.

Cucumber Salad

Consider a cool, light cucumber salad filled with chickpeas, herbs, and can’t-miss flavors as a refreshing alternative to mayonnaise-based BBQ sides. While cucumbers go well with many herbs, try a mixture of dill, mint, parsley, and a Greek yogurt dressing, lemon juice, olive oil, garlic, and pepper.

Green Pea Salad with Bacon

For a fresh summer salad that guests won’t expect, go for an easy green pea salad with bacon, cheddar, and red onion. Mix frozen peas with cheese, chopped bacon, mayonnaise, onion, yogurt, and apple cider vinegar. This dish will be one of the most refreshing BBQ sides you’ve had all season.


Grilled Zucchini

When the garden gets going, it’s time to find ways to use all those vegetables. Luckily, grilled zucchini is one of the classic BBQ sides for any cookout. Slice zucchini into uniform strips, season with oil, vinegar, and spices, then grill until tender.
