From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:
A side dish, sometimes referred to as a side order or simply a side, is a food item that accompanies the entrée or main course at a meal. Side dishes such as salad, potatoes, rice and bread are commonly used with main courses. When used as an adjective qualifying the name of a dish, the term “side” usually refers to a smaller portion served as a side dish, rather than a larger, main dish-sized serving. For example, a “side salad” is usually served in a small bowl or salad plate, in contrast to a large dinner-plate-sized entrée salad. A typical American meal with a meat-based main dish might include one vegetable side dish, sometimes in the form of a salad, and one starch side dish, such as bread, potatoes, rice, or pasta.
