Barbecues are not known for their healthy side dishes, but there are some exceptions. The best of the lot feature seasonal vegetables that are minimally dressed --- meaning not wearing mayonnaise like a winter coat. Look for these sides to fill your paper plate, or add to the grill to make your own healthy sides.
Typically used as a dip for greasy chips, salsa is at its best when paired with barbecued meats and fish since it means "sauce." Skip the chips and spoon it onto your plate to enjoy as a spicy side dish.
