Side Dishes

The following side dishes are terrific for a barbecue or cookout party:


Make a fresh Thai dessert to complete your barbecue party. These fantastic dessert recipes will send your friends away feeling satiated and very happy.

  • If you'd like to try a barbecued dessert, check out this easy Thai treat:Barbecued Pineapple "Pops". This dessert can be prepared ahead of time, then just put on the barbecue after dinner. It's like Pina Colada on a stick!
  • "Creamy" Thai Creme Caramel This dessert takes only 10 minutes to whip up, plus it can be made up to 2 days ahead of time and kept in the refrigerator until your party! As a bonus, it's lactose-free (the "creamy" texture comes from coconut milk), plus gluten-free and low-fat, so an excellent choice if you have guests with diet restrictions.
  • Easy Thai Fried Banana Dessert. Get your guests/friends involved in making their own dessert - very fun to make, plus there's nothing quite so delicious, especially when served with ice cream!
  • Incredibly-Easy Thai Ice Cream Sauce. Make this sauce ahead of time, then just warm up and serve over vanilla ice cream. The ingredients may sound strange, but somehow they magically transform into the taste of butterscotch, followed by a hit of spice - incredible!


Pair this meal with a fantastic Thai Party Drink: Thai Mango Passion Cocktail. This drink is very easy to make, but is so beautiful, it will make you look like a pro!

For a non-alcoholic beverage, make up a large batch of Thai Iced Tea. It's easy to stir up, can be made up to two days in advance, and goes well with all the Thai dishes recommended here.


To create a Thai atmosphere for your party, make this easy Thai-style Centerpiece with Fresh Flowers and Candles. Sets the right mood and looks great either indoors on your dining room table, or out on a deck, especially in the evening! Enjoy!!
