Besides cole slaw, what should I serve with pulled pork?

I'm making pulled pork next weekend, and I'll be serving it with cole slaw. I can't really come up with appropriate side dishes other than baked beans or mac and cheese. I'd love other ideas. Thanks.

I would serve the positively delicious Not-too-Virtuous Salad with Caramlized Apple Vinaigrette. Ihttp://www.food52.com/recipes...
Baked beans would be terrific; I would find mac'n'cheese to be too much/too heavy (unless you want to offer it as an alternative for people who don't like pulled pork). Frankly, I don't think a good pulled pork sandwich needs much else, other than cole slaw. But I realize that a lot of people like to have several different things on their plates . . . . ;o)

I would do either a delicious roasted potato salad with garlic aioli or a mexican corn with lemon juice, chili powder and parmesan cheese. I know, sounds a bit weird, but it is highly addicting. Both are simple and easy and wouldn't take away from the pork. Can I come?

Not exactly a side, but I highly recommend making aargersi's pickled onions. They're great on pulled pork sandwiches. http://www.food52.com/recipes...

how about cajun cornbread, or carrot, zuccuni muffins, or stuffed baked mushrooms should work possibly?
