This is almost a must at our meals in the summertime also. I remember it from when I was a child and I still continue the tradition now

I think I'll start tilling up the little vegetable garden spot this weekend.

Squash-cooked any way you want
Sliced Tomatos, cucumbers and Vidalia onions
New Potatoes
Wilted Leaf Lettuce and Spring Onions
Radishes
Strawberries and Peaches

Sides are my favorite part of the meal. During the holidays I cook up at least 4 sides

Some of my faves are:

*Carrot Suffle (I have Piccadilly's recipe. Sweet and Delicious)
*KFC Coleslaw
*Smothered Greenbeans with Bacon and Onions
*Broccoli Cornbread ( OUT OF THIS WORLD! )

In fact... Please try the Broccoli Cornbread! I'd eat it over dessert!

Broccoli Cornbread
2 boxes Jiffy corn muffin mix(MUST BE JIFFY)
4 eggs, beaten
1 1/2 sticks melted margarine (6 ounces)
1 pkg. (10 oz) chopped broccoli, thawed and drained
1 medium onion, chopped
1 cup cottage cheese
Combine all ingredients and pour into greased 9- X 13-inch baking dish. Bake at 375° degrees for 35 to 40 minutes, or until brown.

Sounds wierd I know but it's irresistable. Someone made this dish this past Christmas and I commented she was nuts. I was embarrassed when I couldn't stop eating it. Ended up bringing half the pan home and ate it cold out of the fridge. Goodness Gracious!

I believe that sweet potato souffle with brown sugar and pecans on top is the best side dish for Thanksgiving! At least for today.

I just spotted lleechef's February 2004 posts about broccoli rabe sauteed in olive oil with garlic and red pepper flakes. Heck, I'd have fallen in love with her back then instead of waiting so many years.

I didn't realize that broccoli rabe had that kind of effect on men.

I second the cheese grits! Those folks who say they don't like grits just have never had cheese grits.
 
Other favorite sides:
scalloped tomatoes (made quite sweet)
squash casserole
Health Salad aka Claremont Salad
Amish Pepper Cabbage slaw
green beans and new potatoes
PA Dutch Filling
my sister's mixed greens
my other sister's candied sweet potatoes
broccoli salad with raisins and bacon
my mom's holiday dressing (stuffing if it were in the turkey)

I think for me the better answer to the question is what side don't I like? In New York there is not usually a choice of sides, as some have previously mentioned, but I have been tempted in restaurants to order a less desirable main course because the accompanying sides sounded so good. Some of my favorites include perfectly tender-crisp steamed/sauteed vegetables, especially zucchini and squash with maybe just a little butter, really good fries, risottos and pilafs, mushrooms in any form, red cabbage, home fries, mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes...you name it. I'm a vegetable fiend, so cook it and it's good to me! (I'm not picky.)

I don't really care for coleslaw, okra, or grits.

I'm originally from western NY state. I moved to get out of the cold and love the south and all things southern. I've been here long enough now that when I go back to visit, the food there seems boring, non-descript, edible. I mean, it's decent fare, meat and potatoes type stuff, and some prefer it. The biggest shock to me when I first visited the south was sugar in iced tea! As for northern sides, I'd stick to fries, onion rings, etc. You'll shrivel up to nothing in the south if you don't eat coleslaw, okra or grits!!!! Unless of course, you like cornbread in any shape or form!
