15 Best Side Dishes for Sandwiches

What should you serve with sandwiches? From chips to sweet potato fries, these are 15 side dishes that will not disappoint.

Sandwiches are fantastic. Two pieces of bread with a sweet or savory filling can't go wrong!

They look nice; they taste fantastic, and they’re very easy to create.

When choosing the best sides, keep the sandwich's flavor and texture profile in mind.

Here are 15 sides dishes with sandwiches that are guaranteed to impress everybody!

1. Grilled Cheese and Tomato Soup

Grilled cheese and tomato soup: one of the most classic combinations ever.

There's a reason why this partnership is so successful: they improve each other.

Sure, they each taste excellent on their own, but together? They make a magnificent blast of tastes!

So much awesomeness! Rich, creamy, cheesy, and tangy!


2. Fruit Salad

Looking for something that would excite the kids? How about a fruit salad and sandwich combo?

Fruit salad is fantastic with all sorts of sandwiches!

Crisp and refreshing fruits coated in Greek yogurt make an excellent accompaniment to any savory sandwich.

Fruit salad is appealing to children because it is exciting, colorful, and tasty.

Pack it with their sandwich for school, and you'll almost certainly come home to an empty lunch box.


3. Homemade Potato Chips

Chips complement cold sandwiches perfectly. The pronounced crunch gives a wonderful texture contrast that cannot be surpassed!

There’s no better way to complete a meal. Just open your favorite purse and you’re all set!

Or, if you’re feeling particularly daring, try making your own! You can then add as much salt or seasoning as you want.


4. BBQ Pulled Pork Sandwich with Baked Beans

BBQ pulled pork sandwiched between two slices of bread, with a large serving of baked beans: that's what I call dinner!

Is there a more soothing lunch than this?

The smokiness of the barbecue, the tenderness of the pork, and the heartiness of the beans produce perfect harmony.


5. Coleslaw

Coleslaw is crunchy and refreshing, making it an ideal accompaniment to any sandwich.

I really like the vibrancy it adds to the platter. In a bowl, cabbage, and carrots? It may appear simple, but the color combination is stunning!

You can make it even more vibrant by adding purple cabbage as well.

Just make sure to use the dressing that complements your sandwich.

For instance, if your sandwich is rich and creamy already, I propose you use a vinegar-based dressing.

Otherwise, a traditional mayonnaise dressing is excellent!


6. Sweet Potato Fries

Sweet potato fries are much better with sandwiches than regular fries!

Something about the sweetness and crispness of the fries makes them go so well with sandwiches.

Sweet potato fries provide an excellent flavor contrast to a savory burger.


7. Macaroni Salad

My favorite salad is macaroni salad. My mother used to make this for us all the time when I was growing up.

I used to love devouring bowl after bowl of this delicious and creamy salad!

Now, what I enjoy even more is pairing it with a delicious ham sandwich. These two recipes balance each other out well, for a super fulfilling meal.


8. Grilled Cheese and Chili

Feeling really low? Increase your comfort food intake with a hearty grilled cheese and chili combo!

If this doesn't brighten your day, I don't know what will.

Just the image of dipping that delicious, toasted sandwich in a hot bowl of chili is giving me pleasant vibes!


9. Ham and Cheese Sandwich with Potato Soup

Looking for something filling to accompany your ham and cheese sandwich? Go for a thick, creamy, and stodgy potato soup!

Think about it: cheese, potatoes, and ham? What a fantastic trio of tastes! This one is sure to please.


10. Ham and Cheese Sandwich with Tomato Bisque

This combination provides a wonderful balance of flavors.

The sweetness and tanginess of the bisque, combined with the richness and savoriness of the sandwich, are a match made in heaven!


11. Smoked Turkey Panini with Tomato Basil Soup

Tomato soup goes well with sandwiches.

Aside from grilled cheese and ham and cheese, a smoked turkey panini will complement the soup nicely.

Instead of the conventional components, you can instead give this classic soup a variation with a little of basil! It gives a lovely earthy flavor as well as a splash of color!


12. Reuben Sandwich and Matzo Ball Soup

Although Reuben sandwiches are delicious, not everyone can handle their powerful umami flavor.

If you're one of those people, serve it with matzo ball soup.

Not familiar? Matzo ball soup is created with dumplings made from cracker meals that swim in a clear chicken broth.

It's ideal for the Reuben since the dumplings not only balance off the richness of the sandwich, but the chicken broth also works well with it.


13. Turkey Club and Butternut Squash Soup

It's the perfect Thanksgiving leftover meal: a turkey club sandwich and butternut squash soup!

This combination works so well since it is reminiscent of fall and has a good flavor balance.

This sweet, rich, and creamy soup complements the mild fowl perfectly.


14. Grilled Ham and Cheese with Mac and Cheese

More cheese, more cheese, more cheese! That is the point of this combination.

There’s no such thing as too much cheese! A grilled ham and cheese sandwich and mac & cheese are drool-worthy combinations.


15. Green Salad

What is it about a green salad that I adore? It's flavorful, refreshing, and healthful, and it goes well with practically any entree!

No matter what kind of sandwich you're creating, a simple green salad will help to elevate its flavors.

For the salad, use whatever ingredients and dressing you desire! Just bear in mind that the perfect meal requires a mix of flavors and textures.
