Jump To Recipe

These 27 healthy summer side dish recipes are perfect for picnics, BBQs, and laid-back nights eating in. From fritters to laws to salads, there are vegan, vegetarian and gluten-free options for everyone. 

Summer is here which means grilling for the Fourth of July, outdoor BBQs while laying by the pool, and lots of summer get-togethers with friends and family! If you follow a vegan or gluten-free diet, sometimes potluck events can be tricky. If you're worried about only having meat, dairy or gluten-filled options at your next get-together, these 27 healthy summer side dishes will save you.

This list has tons of vegan, vegetarian, gluten-free and overall healthy recipes for you to choose from. Of course, they're full of fresh summer produce. You can expect plenty of eggplant, peaches, zucchini, berries, and more! Whether you need to feed a crowd or just need to add a quick side to dinner, I've got you covered.

Many of these recipes are from SQ, but I've also included recipes from some of my favorite bloggers. There's sure to be something for everyone on this list! Don't forget to pin this post so that you can come back to this list over and over again!
