We are going to a crawfish boil on Saturday. I need to take a side dish. Someone else is bringing potato salad. I was thinking about making red beans and rice. Any other ideas out there? I'd love something excellent, not just good.
Appetizers and desserts are typical crawfish boil additions.
Salsa and guacamole with chips or crudites with a dip always go over big.
I used to make/take a Mississippi mud pie. That always disappeared.
Traditionally, potato salad is not served at crawfish boils for several reasons. People toss whole new potatoes in the crawfish pot for it to soak up all the same seasonings that the crawfish are cooked in. This tastes better and a lot easier to make. Also, eating crawfish is easier if everything that is served can be eaten using your fingers. You can do this with whole new potatoes.
