Onion rings - though I don't make those myself I do like them with burgers sometimes. Something like sweet potato fritters could work too.

A topping that I make to put on baked salmon tastes so good to me that I make a lot of it, thus having leftovers. It makes a good sidedish, in my opinion -
- two big brown onions, or more, peeled, chopped, sauteed in olive oil slowly for at least thirty minutes
- salt and a goodly amount of pepper
- a tablespoon or more of stone ground mustard
- juice of one or two lemons, without seeds

I agree with Bohne. A sandwich doesn't really need a side dish, however, I kind of like having something crunchy with my sandwiches...something like carrot sticks or sugar snap peas.

I think a dinner sandwich needs a side dish. For lunch a glass of milk usually serves. And yeah, a little crunch.

Barbeque type sandwiches definately need a side, in my opinion.

Those onion rings sound delicious. I'll try those. I make something similar with kohlrabi but I can only find it certain times a year.

Oh yeah... zucchini. I can't stand the stuff. I'm wondering if eggplant would work as a replacement for some recipes.....

Sandwich and a side of what?
Okay so I'm new to this so I hope it's not too late that no one will read this. So for me and mine we love roasted broccoli. It tastes like french fries believe it or not. Chop some broccoli, wash and let dry. Coat in olive oil throw on a pan (or oil it in the pan) and sprinkle with salt and pepper and we like onion or garlic powder. Then we put it in at 400 degrees 20 or so minutes until it starts looking dark and gets a little crispy. My family, even the kids, like it really crispy but it's whatever you like. That's it.

Otherwise, I don't see why every side has to be a dish necessarily. Like some others said, just fresh fruit and veggies with or without a dip is good. Broccoli slaw is good too and a little different than regular slaw. Just buy it shredded or shred the stems and dress it as you would slaw. Or (I'm really on a broccoli thing here) steamed broccoli on potatos with cheese, but then again that may be too starchy with sandwiches. But I'm a huge hummus fan too. I have a killer recipe if you want.

I also like hummus with crackers - there are lots of varieties of hummus.

I was thinking of hummus too, only I like to use raw veggies as the dipper instead of crackers if it's to go with a sandwich. Sugar snap peas, red or green pepper strips, cucumber, celery sticks, and carrots all work well.

Hey, welcome, kse. I've never roasted broccoli, but have thought about it.. I have done cauliflower in with my once-a-week veggie roasting maneuver.

I'll try it next time.

On the onion rings, boomer, I've not made the onion rings that you fry at x temperature in an oil that can take the heat, the rings coated with this and that gloppola. Frankly, I'm a clumsy soul and would probably set the house afire. So the recipe I gave can be in rings or chopped bits, and gets translucent at a medium slowish simmer of not all that much oil as opposed to zip in boiling hot fat.

JPB, yes! on the raw veggies and hummus... (never eat all the hummus!)

That's just like don't have three helpings of pasta e fagioli...

I say that because, oh, two decades ago I brought hummus and a variety crackers and bread (well, it was mid-80's, no homemade crackers or pita) to an office party. It was a great recipe, now long lost, and I made a lot of it. One guy had never seemingly tasted any food so delicious, and scarfed a great deal of it.

I heard from him the next week that he'd never been so gaseous..

(miss him, great raconteur)

Hmmmm...

I think I'll try that broccoli thing tonight!

I don't feel like doing any real cooking tonight so I pulled a smoked phesant out of the freezer -- it came in some gift box at Christmas and I had no idea what to do with it (still don't) but the roasted broccoli and some melon might be nice accompaniments.
