Your dinner party wouldn’t be a success without a few side dishes to complement those savory slow-cooked beef short ribs or the crispy fried chicken you’ll be making.  Since fall is here, why not create a few delicious seasonal sides that are made with fresh produce? We’re sharing a few recipes that you should serve at your next dinner party.

10 Seasonal Side Dishes For Every Fall Table

Macaroni and cheese is popular at summer cookouts, but that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy it this fall. Healthy Mac and Cheese with Butternut Squash is a great side to serve with crispy Buttermilk Fried Chicken. You’re able to cut back on the cheese by adding puréed butternut squash for a healthier spin on this popular specialty.

Braised short ribs are typically paired with mashed potatoes or polenta — we’re suggest you switch it up and pair them with Creamy Grits with Roasted Butternut Squash and Blue Cheese. You’ll get the same texture consistency as the polenta, but with a lot more flavor. Don’t stop with these two recipes; here are more that you will enjoy as well.
