It's like asking if there are 3 boys and 2 girls, how many couples can you make with this group? Give the boys the names of the vegetables and the girls the names of the potatoes. You have 3 choices for your sides (the boys) and 2 choices for your potatoes (the girls) The total number of choices (couples) you have then is $$3\times 2$$.
