I'm searching for some ideas on what sort of side dishes would go good with pulled pork on a bun.....something that would feed a crowd of about 20 people. any ideas? Thanks.
Coleslaw is wonderful, many people like to add the slaw right to the sandwich!

Everything that's been posted would be great. I would also add corn on the cob and watermelon.

Hush Puppies would also be great with pulled pork. Actually, everything posted would be great!

And the current upsets your boat
Don't think of things that might have been
Just lay on your back and float

This Cole Slaw from America's Test Kitchen has become a favorite of ours.
ATK'S SPICY SWEET & SOUR COLE SLAW
6 cups freshly shredded cabbage
1 large carrot, peeled and julienned
½ cup sugar
2 teaspoons kosher salt
¼ teaspoon celery seed
6 tablespoons vegetable oil
¼ cup wine vinegar
1 teaspoon red pepper flakes (or to taste)
½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
Toss cabbage & carrots with sugar, salt, & celery seed. Place in colander under a bowl and drain for 1-4 hours. Place in clean bowl. Add oil & vinegar and toss to coat. Stir in red pepper flakes and pepper. Refrigerate up to 5 days.
Also the pasta salad is light and would go just right with the pulled pork.
