    Non Potato Burger sides?

    I'm planning on burgers for the weekend but want to try a little something different on the side? What's your favorite non-potato burger side?

    Although I've been doing a version of the mushroom blended burger for years, I'm going to try Clint Cantwell's recipe this weekend.

    My wife has an amazing cucumber and pasta salad that goes well with burgers. For me any type of salad pasta or green goes well with a burger.

      Corn on the cob is the classic one, IMO.

        Martha Stewart has an easy but tasty recipe for garlic and ginger cucumbers, they are really good and could sorta substitute as healthy fries. Panko fried asparagus is another one that could substitute as fries but be unexpected on the plate

          Panko fried asparagus is one my wife and I tentatively agreed to this morning. Do you have a recipe recommendation? PS - I lived in Fayetteville fresh out of college many, many years ago. And no - not military.

          Dalmore I honestly don't remember which recipe I used, but it was just egg, panko, flour, paprika, salt and pepper I think. I pretty sure I served it with a mayo, citrus juice, and garlic aioli. Just checked google and none of them are the exact recipe I used, but they all look good I'm about an hour away from Fayette-Nam

          Hmm, your for sale post has you 1-hour south of Raleigh and now you say 1 hour from Fayetteville - I going with Sanford. Beautiful little town. My Mom lives about an hour or so west in Ablemarle. My grandparents hailed from Rocky Mount. I'm native of Henderson about an hour north of Raleigh.

        No potato Salad, really, Ok then I would go with coleslaw.
        I enjoy coleslaw as a topping on the burger.

          I've not tried it on a burger, but always put a dollop on a pulled pork BBQ sandwich.

          Did a barter Ribs for pulled pork, my friend included coleslaw and slider buns.

        A garlic and jalapeno pasta salad. Minced garlic and tiny dice on the jalapeno. A little olive oil to coat the noodles. S & P and toss. As for the pasta type, anything works. I prefer spaghetti noodles.

          Fried green beans, pasta salads and or coleslaw are the first that come to mind. Maybe that’s from reading other suggestions in the thread. Nothing else really comes to mind though.

            Cook pasta of your choice and drain and cool.

            Cut up tomatoes, black olives, cucumbers, sweet red peppers, etc, etc

            Mix together in a bowl with your favorite Italian dressing.

            Top with Parmesan cheese.

                That's actually really good. Lime or lemon squeezed on sweet potato kinda rocks too.

                Grilled corn with chili powder, salt and lime.

              #11
              I like something nice and acidic. A non-mayo based cole slaw, quick pickled cucumbers or spicy smashed cucumbers are at the top of my list

                Dalmore - you can search for recipes for Sichuan cucumber salad but basically smash and chunk a bunch of cucumbers.. maybe 4-6 small cucumbers for 2 people. Add in one sliced hot pepper (long hots, jalapeños or banana peppers work. I like red for a contrast) Then mix a few cloves of chopped garlic with a little salt, pinch of sugar, with 2 TBS soy sauce and 2 tsp black vinegar and a TBS of Chinese chili oil. Mix all together. One of my favorite things

                The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted


                Napoleon’s 22″ Pro Cart Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It’s hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the 22″ Pro Cart a viable alternative.

Although it is not certified as all-weather, we have tested it outdoors in Chicago weather and it has not delaminated in three years, but there is minor fading.

                The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One


                The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.
