What to serve with jambalaya?

Hi all! I'm planning to serve shrimp and sausage jambalaya at a dinner party and have been trying to think of what to serve with it. Any ideas? Thanks!

With those kind of "all-in-one" meals, especially if they're somewhat rich....I think a nice, tangy garden salad or a crisp slaw is best for the side.

If you have hungry guests, make a menu like that for paella (same general sort of main).
Tapas, avoiding the shrimp & sausage in the main, greens or roasted red peppers.
Dessert, flan or fruit or both.
Drinks, wine, beer and/or lemonade.

I agree with keeping the side vegetable-based with a rich meal like jambalaya. I have always liked these quick-pickled vegetables from an old Bon Appetit magazine, and it also could be a bit of a nod to giardiniera, especially if you use carrots and cauliflower in the mix: http://www.bonappetit.com.... If you need a dessert to complete the theme, this is inspired by a trip to New Orleans: https://food52.com/recipes....
