Grilled Cheese Sides and Dips

Dips and Sides That'll Guarantee Great Grilled Cheese

A great grilled cheese stands alone, but sometimes a side dish adds even more by offering an acidic contrast to the creamy cheese. When you're wondering what to possibly serve, experiment with these dips and side dishes.

  • Soup: Try pairing your toastie with tomato, black bean, pureed lentil, or other creamy soups.
  • Salad dressing: Balsamic vinaigrette, dijon vinaigrette, or ranch salad dressings can complement melted cheese and bread.
  • Sauces: When making a grilled sandwich out of Italian breads and cheeses, serve it alongside marinara sauce for a pizza-like rendition.
  • Condiments: Condiments like ketchup and mustard never hurt. A grilled cheese, after all, is still a sandwich!
  • Pickled vegetables: Cheese is heavy, but pickles will help cut through the grease. There's always the classic cucumber pickle, coleslaw, pickled jalapeños, or even kimchi.
  • Chutney or jam: Sometimes a grilled cheese calls for something a little sweet like a mango chutney or a fig jam.
