Often when I make burgers or hot dogs on the grill I pair them with the typical potato chips, pasta salad, mac and cheese, or even classic french fries. But I also like to have a healthy option to offer my family, or to take to a picnic or summer cookout.

These healthy burger sides range from a simple salad recipe to quinoa salad, fruit salad, or broccoli salad. It is easy to offer up a great side dish that your whole family will love!
