Grilled Corn on the Cob

Grilled corn on the cob is a great side dish for barbecued chicken wings.

You can grill it in a grill basket, or even place it directly on the grill grate.

Try experimenting with different seasonings for your corn—from Cajun to barbecue sauce and everything in between!

You could also use mayo or butter as a dressing for this delicious vegetable.

You can also try using different vegetables to complement your chicken wings.

For example, you might like the taste of grilled bell peppers better with barbecue sauces than regular onions or shallots.

Mexican Street Corn Salad

Mexican Street Corn Salad is a delicious dish to serve with your BBQ chicken wings, and it’s super easy to make.

To start, you’ll want to grill the corn on the cob until it’s charred and tender (about 3-4 minutes per side).

Then, remove from the grill and cool until you can handle them.

Next, cut off the kernels by holding each cob in one hand and slicing down with a sharp knife so that all of your slices are about 1/2 inch thick (make sure not to go too deep or else you’ll hit the cob).

In a medium bowl combine all ingredients for dressing except olive oil, then whisk together until well combined; add olive oil slowly while continuing to whisk together until desired consistency forms (you may want more or less than what I used).

Last but not least add all other ingredients into bowl along with grilled corn kernels then toss everything together thoroughly.


If Mexican street corn salad isn’t really your thing—or if there are others at your party who wouldn’t eat it—then here are some alternatives:

  • Corn on the cob– This is a great side dish that goes with almost anything, and it tastes great grilled!
  • Cole Slaw– Another easy to make side dish that pairs well with BBQ chicken wings.
  • You can also opt for coleslaw without mayonnaise if you’re looking for something lighter.
  • Potato Salad– A classic choice when it comes to BBQ chicken wings (or any other kind of meat really).
  • It’s always good served cold so don’t worry

Creamy Broccoli Salad with Yogurt Dressing

For the dressing, you’ll want to use a food processor to blend all the ingredients together.

You can also make it by hand with a whisk and mixing bowl, but I find using a food processor makes the job much easier.

Once you’ve got everything blended up, pour it into a jar and store in your fridge until you’re ready to use it.

The longer it sits, the better!

To make this salad, cut up one head of broccoli into florets—you should have about 4 cups when you’re done.

Then slice 1 large cauliflower head (or 2 smaller heads) into bite-sized pieces—you should have about 3 cups once they’re sliced.

Chop half an inch off of half an onion (about 2 cups), then dice that into cubes as well.

Finally, add in 1 cup dried cranberries (or any other dried fruit).

Roasted Radishes with Pancetta and Butter Sauce

Roasted radishes are a great side dish option to serve with BBQ chicken wings.

Radishes are a little bitter, but they’re also bright and fresh, so they can balance out the heavier sauces of a traditional barbecue.

They also have a much lighter flavor than potatoes, so you don’t have to worry about them overpowering the meat.

Roasted radishes are a delicious way to serve vegetables at your barbecue.

You can roast the radishes whole or sliced, depending on your preference.

To make this dish even easier, you can use pre-sliced radishes from the store!

They’re often sold in bags already washed and cut up into bite-sized pieces.

It’s also easy to find premade sauces in jars at any grocery store.

Cauliflower Rice Pilaf

If you’re looking for a healthier alternative to rice, this cauliflower rice pilaf is for you.

Cauliflower rice has become popular in recent years as a way to sneak in an extra serving of vegetables into your meal without noticing it’s there.

For those concerned with low-carb diets, it can also reduce the amount of carbohydrates consumed at dinner time (or any other time).

While making your own cauliflower rice can be great fun and rewarding (and takes only about five minutes), if you prefer convenience then Trader Joe’s sells pre-riced cauliflower that is ready to use right away and can last up to two weeks in your fridge.

Mexican Quinoa Bowls

Quinoa comes in three colors: white (the most common), red and black.

The black variety has the highest nutritional value because its outer coating contains antioxidants that prevent rancidity.

If you’re not a fan of quinoa, then you can substitute it with brown rice or black beans in this recipe.
