The Best Soup Side Dishes
There are a few common side dishes, like a crusty loaf of bread or a fresh green salad. I’ll share specific ideas below but you’ll want to think about what would be a good side dish with a broccoli cheddar soup. I like pairing salads that have sweet pears or crunchy apples, which are great to pair with a cheesy soup.

You can make one of the recipes below or use this as inspiration to create your own side dish!
