Our Five Favorite Memorial Day Sides

Get ready for the long holiday weekend, and the various potlucks you're undoubtedly invited to, by making some amazing sides that are sure to complement grilled main dishes.

The array of fresh seasonal veggies in this Golden Beet Salad with Avocado and Feta makes it a bright and easy side dish for grilled fish or chicken.

Why not add that lovely smoky flavor gained from grilling to your sides? Grilled Baba Ghanoush is a flavorful and unexpected accompaniment.

Make sure that gluten-free guests still get to enjoy the meal by putting Cauliflower Biscuits on the table. Fluffy, garlicky, and cheesy, it's hard to have just one.

Mix and match different vegetables you have on hand to make your own customized Quick Summer Squash and Bell Pepper Gratin. Extra points if it's made in a cast-iron skillet!

Have a waste-free kitchen by making Baby Carrots with Herb Dressing and Olives, which utilizes carrot tops in the bright green dressing.
