Top 12 Side Dishes for Dauphinoise Potatoes

Here are twelve side dishes that pair perfectly with Dauphinoise potatoes:

1 – Lemon Herb Chicken

Lemon herb chicken is our go-to for a burst of zest. We use fresh lemon juice, garlic, and a mix of thyme and rosemary. It’s tangy, savory, and perfect with creamy potatoes.

We marinate it overnight. Next day, we bake it until it’s juicy and golden. It’s an easy, tasty side that pairs well.

2 – Garlic Green Beans

Garlic green beans are a total game-changer. We toss fresh green beans in olive oil and minced garlic. A quick stir-fry till they get that perfect crisp.

Green beans, garlic, olive oil, salt, and a hint of black pepper.

They’re garlicky, crunchy, and a little spicy. We love making them for summer barbeques.

3 – Roasted Carrots with Thyme

Roasted carrots with thyme are a flavor feast. Carrots, olive oil, salt, pepper, and thyme. Roast until tender and caramelized.

Here’s our take: sweet, earthy, with a hint of thyme. Crisp on the outside, soft inside.

We love them with any meal. Simple to prepare, delicious to eat.

4 – Arugula Pear Salad

Arugula pear salad brings sweetness and peppery crunch. Pear slices add juiciness. Arugula provides a spicy kick.

We toss it with crumbled blue cheese and candied pecans for extra flavor. Drizzle it with balsamic vinaigrette.

This salad is a refreshing side. It’s super easy to assemble. We love how it balances creamy Dauphinoise potatoes.

5 – Steamed Asparagus with Hollandaise

We love steamed asparagus with hollandaise for its delightful simplicity. Asparagus spears are soft, with a slight crunch remaining, perfectly playing off the rich creaminess of the hollandaise sauce.

Steam fresh asparagus for seven minutes. For the hollandaise sauce, combine egg yolks, lemon juice, and melted butter.

You get a buttery, tangy flavor that takes the veggie to new heights.

6 – Balsamic Glazed Beets

Who knew beets could be this good? We roast them, add a balsamic glaze, and they become magic.

Crisp on the outside, tender inside. The tangy-sweet balsamic complements their earthiness beautifully.

We coat them in olive oil, salt, and pepper. Bake until caramelized. The simplest ingredients make the yummiest dish.

Optional garnish with fresh parsley. It’s our favorite underrated side.

7 – Sautéed Spinach with Garlic

Ever have spinach so good it made you happy? We have. Fresh spinach, garlic, salt, pepper.

Quick sauté until wilted. Garlic gets golden and fragrant. Simple, right?

Bold flavors. Earthy and slightly bitter spinach meets toasty garlic. Perfect side for rich meals.

We toss it together in minutes, and it’s a hit every time.

8 – Grilled Portobello Mushrooms

Grilled portobello mushrooms are a hit. They’re juicy, meaty, and full of flavor. We use olive oil, balsamic vinegar, garlic, and a touch of salt and pepper. These guys soak up the marinade like a dream.

We grill them until they get those beautiful char lines. They’re smoky, slightly sweet, and earthy. We love them as a hearty side.

9 – Citrus Avocado Salad

We’re obsessed with this refreshing side. Bright flavors from juicy oranges and creamy avocado slices. Tossed with red onion, cilantro, and a sprinkle of chili flakes. A tangy lime dressing ties it all together. It’s light, zesty, and perfectly balances rich main dishes.

We’ve served it at countless summer gatherings. Always a hit with its vibrant color and bold taste.

10 – Honey Glazed Carrots

Who knew carrots could be so tasty? We coat them in honey and roast until caramelized. They’re sweet, earthy, and tender with crispy edges.

All you need: carrots, honey, olive oil, salt, and pepper.

We’ve tried these at family dinners, and they’re always a hit. The honey glaze is the star, giving a perfect balance of sweetness.

11 – Herb-Crusted Salmon

Salmon is our seafood go-to. We coat it with a mix of fresh dill, parsley, and thyme. A dash of olive oil and lemon zest rounds it out. Baking brings out the flavors.

Herb-crusted salmon turns out flaky and savory. We love it with creamy potatoes. It smells divine and tastes incredible. Simple, delicious, and unmatched.

12 – Roasted Cauliflower with Parmesan

Roasted cauliflower with parmesan is a crispy, cheesy treat we can’t get enough of. Crunchy florets tossed in olive oil with a sprinkle of parmesan. We bake until golden and fragrant.

The earthy cauliflower and nutty parmesan pair like old friends. It’s savory and a bit nutty.

Perfect for snacking or dinner sides. So simple.
