If you love lobster, then you know it is the star of the show on your plate. So, what do you serve with this main star? What side dishes for lobster are the best?
To keep the lobster as the main event, you need to have very simple side dishes. Very colorful vegetables in the yellow, reds and greens work very well with Lobster dishes.
Here is one example:
Cucumber and tomato salad. This makes a great side dish for lobster. It is simple to make and very colorful.
Here is what you will need:
cucumbers (as many as you think you will need for your guests, you will have to gauge this yourself)
nice red ripe tomatoes
Greek style bottled dressing
Peel your cucumber and then slice in 1/2 lengthwise, and then again, and then slice the wedges about 1/2 inch think.
Wash and cut the tomatoes into pieces a similar size to the cucumber chunks.
Put these in a bowl, and then pour some dressing (I found the Kraft Greek style dressing with feta worked the best for me)
Then let it sit for about 15 minutes before you serve it, to absorb the Greek dressing. Then sprinkle with the crumbled feta cheese.
Put on the table with a large spoon, and let your guests help themselves to this delicious side dish for the lobster.
Add a basket of crusty rolls, and lots of whipped butter, and you will have a fine lobster lunch or dinner.
You don’t need to spend too long on the side dishes for lobster, they should be simple, colorful and delicious. Your guests will be more interested in the lobster than anything else really anyways. Potato dishes may be a bit heavy a side dish for lobster, so stick to lighter fare, such as fresh vegetables and fresh bread or rolls.
Don’t forget the napkins or maybe bibs!
