Various salads go well with the ribs as a side dish. Try, for example, our 5 different coleslaw recipes !

You should bake the ribs covered with aluminum foil to retain their moisture and prevent them from drying out. Just use the foil in the middle of the baking time and you don’t need to wrap the ribs tightly , just cover them and tuck them around the edges.
