By the end of summer, you start to recognize the same dishes at all of your weekend barbecues. While the traditional dishes are crowd pleasers for a reason, why not mix it up as wow your family and friends with a new staple? By adding new ingredients to your favorite dishes or trying new combinations, your next barbecue will be one to remember.

1. Coleslaw

Coleslaw is a barbecue side dish staple, but the traditional version can be sloppy and drenched in unhealthy mayonaise. Try this recipe AllRecipes instead for a creamy and tangy taste without the high fat content. Mixing greek yogurt in with the mayo has all of the texture with half of the fat.


  • 12 ounces plain Greek yogurt
  • 1/2 cup mayo
  • 1/4 cup white vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 2 12 ounce packages of coleslaw mix
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Directions: Stir yogurt, mayo, vinegar, and honey together in a large bowl. Add coleslaw mix and toss to coat. Season with salt and pepper. Chill in the refrigerator for at least an hour or until ready to serve.
