Something that doesn't get lost next to a bold chili—kale salad? Cornbread croutons could be a fun way to bring it back to the chili.

I like this with Mexican food, but I think it would be delicious with chili.

Maybe its the thug in me.....but growing up we had romaine salad, shredded carrots, radishes, and good old ranch dressing. The ranch acted as a way to calm heat and balance acidity. 90's nostalgia at its finest!

What pops into my head immediately was a jicama and carrot slaw in a zesty vinaigrette, like this one: http://www.cookingchanneltv...

I like to pair chili with any kind of slaw (cabbage, Brussels sprouts, or fennel) because it has a lot of bite to it and enough acidity to stand to the robustness of the chili. If you really want to play up the Mexican flavors, you can make a straw out of carrot, green mango, jicama and red peppers.

I might try an avocado-tomato salad with lime as the acidic element. If you could find fresh corn, that would probably go well along with the avocado and tomatoes.

This is a Southwest Salad that I created that pairs really well with Chili or is great on its own.
