The chances that you're attending a barbecue or potluck of sorts this weekend are likely, given that it's the final hoorah before the summer unofficially comes to a close. When there are hamburgers and hot dogs in order, there of course needs to be a few other items to round out the meal. Here are 20 that take no time at all to make, which means if you're tasked with bringing a side dish the morning of the party, you can assemble one without breaking a sweat.

Crowd-Pleasing Salads

Big, vegetable-laden salads are wins on holiday weekends not only because they feed the whole gang, but they also usually hold up well for multiple hours.

From the Grill

If the grill is already on for your burgers and hot dogs, you might as well toss a few other things on the grates for side dishes. Plus, it's a well-known fact that all vegetables taste 100 percent better when cooked on the grill.

Other Winning Side Dishes

Beyond salads and grilled veggies, there are plenty of other unique side dishes to make that don't take too much time. Toss a creamy corn casserole in the oven if you're up for some heat, or grab the spiralizer if you'd rather keep it a no-cook situation.
