Which Side Dishes to Serve With Sandwiches?


soup and sandwich

Grilled cheese and tomato soup is the classic sandwich combo. But there are plenty of other sandwich-side dish pairings that would make for a delicious, well-balanced meal.

Here are a few ideas:

  • Hummus veggie sandwich with couscous.
  • Barbecued chicken breast sandwich with potato salad.
  • Turkey sandwich with baked sweet potato fries.
  • BBQ pulled pork sandwiches with baked beans.
  • Hot ham and cheese sandwiches with cole slaw.
  • Grilled portabello mushroom sandwiches with bean salad.
  • Reuben sandwich with fruit salad.
  • Cheese sandwich and chili.

What's your favorite side to serve with sandwiches?

I'm a sandwich and chips kind of gal but I do try to eat better and have veggies, usually carrots and celery on the side with some hummus. 

I've also started subbing hummus for mayo on occasion on my sammies, especially when I have avocado on it.  Yummo
