1 – Celery Sticks with Ranch Dressing

Celery sticks and ranch dressing, a classic combo. Crisp, fresh celery paired with creamy, tangy ranch. Each bite hits a perfect balance of crunch and smoothness.

We love the way the ranch’s herb-infused flavor elevates the slightly bitter edge of the celery. Ranch is often made with a blend of buttermilk, garlic, onion, mustard, herbs (chives, parsley, dill) and spices. It’s our go-to side for just about any spicy dish.

2 – Carrot and Cucumber Slaw

Cucumber and carrot slaw is fresh and tangy. It’s a crunchy mix of shredded carrots and thinly sliced cucumbers.

We love this dish for its citrusy kick and its simplicity.

Toss the veggies in a light vinaigrette with apple cider vinegar, olive oil, salt, and pepper.

Perfect side for our spicy Buffalo cauliflower. It’s refreshing and keeps things balanced.

3 – Baked Sweet Potato Fries

Who needs regular fries anymore? These baked sweet potato fries are crispy on the outside, soft on the inside.

They’re tossed in olive oil, sea salt, and pepper for that perfect savory kick. We love pairing them with spicy Buffalo cauliflower, creating a sweet-salty duo. The natural sweetness of the potatoes balances the heat.

Try adding a sprinkle of paprika for extra flavor. Simple and seriously tasty.

4 – Quinoa Tabbouleh Salad

Okay, foodies, let’s talk quinoa tabbouleh salad. We’re obsessed! This salad is light yet filling.

Ingredients include fluffy quinoa, fresh parsley, mint, tomatoes, cucumber, and a zingy lemon vinaigrette. The flavors are bright and refreshing.

The nutty quinoa mixes well with the herbs.

We’ve swapped bulgur for quinoa, making it gluten-free. The lemon juice gives a tangy finish that we love.

5 – Roasted Garlic Hummus with Pita Bread

Love hummus? Us too! This one’s all about roasted garlic hummus. It’s creamy, savory, and packed with flavor.

Made with chickpeas, tahini, lemon juice, olive oil, and roasted garlic. The garlic adds a smoky depth, making it stand out.

We love dipping warm pita bread in it. It’s a classic combo.

Each bite is smooth and satisfyingly garlicky. Keeping it simple, tasty, and refreshing.

6 – Grilled Corn on the Cob

You know what’s always a hit? Grilled corn on the cob. The charred kernels have a smoky, sweet flavor.

We brush them with melted butter and sprinkle paprika on top. Simple yet tasty.

The juicy corn contrasts beautifully with the spicy Buffalo cauliflower.

It’s fresh, tasty and full of natural sweetness. Plus, it’s fun to eat right off the cob!

7 – Avocado and Tomato Salad

This dish mixes creamy avocado and juicy tomato for a fresh treat.

We use ripe avocados, cherry tomatoes, red onions, and cilantro for brightness. Drizzle it with lime juice for a zingy finish.

It’s amazing how the avocado’s smooth texture blends with the crispness of the tomatoes. We love it with our Buffalo cauliflower as it cuts through the spice nicely.

Just a sprinkle of salt and pepper, and it’s ready to go. Simple, refreshing, delicious.

8 – Baked Potato Wedges with Chives

We love these baked potato wedges. They’re golden, crispy, and seasoned just right. Tossed in olive oil, sea salt, and fresh chives, they have a perfect balance of flavors. They’re deliciously simple.

Pair them with anything. They’re perfect with spicy Buffalo cauliflower. The chives add a slight oniony bite. Best comfort food in a bite! Easy to make and addictively tasty.

9 – Lemon Herb Couscous

Light and zesty, lemon herb couscous brings a fragrant touch to our meals. Made from fluffy couscous, fresh parsley, mint, lemon zest, and juice.

This side has a bright citrus kick that’s super refreshing. We love how the herbs mix with the grains, creating a burst of flavors in every bite.

10 – Roasted Red Pepper Dip with Veggie Sticks

Roasted red pepper dip is a flavor-packed option we love. It’s creamy with a smoky, sweet edge.

Made with roasted red peppers, garlic, olive oil, and some lemon juice. This dip pairs fantastically with crunchy veggie sticks.

We can’t get enough of the contrast between the smooth dip and crisp veggies.

Perfect for adding a tasty twist to our meals. Plus, it’s super easy to whip up.

11 – Grilled Pineapple Slices

Grilled pineapple slices are deliciously smoky and sweet. Pineapple’s natural sugars caramelize on the grill, making them irresistibly tasty.

Ingredients are simple: pineapple, olive oil, and a pinch of sea salt. Grill until you see grill marks. Takes only a few minutes.

We love the slight char that brings a unique twist to the sweetness.

12 – Cucumber Raita

Here’s a super refreshing side we adore: cucumber raita! It’s a mix of cool yogurt, diced cucumbers, cumin, and a pinch of salt.

We love its cooling effect with Buffalo cauliflower. The cucumber adds crunch while the yogurt soothes the spice.

We typically mix in some fresh mint and a bit of lime juice for extra zing. Perfect balance of creamy and crunchy!
