From stuffing and green beans to mashed potatoes and salad, holiday sides recipes are just as important as the main dish. Add color and texture to your holiday buffet with vibrant veggie dishes featuring caramelized winter squash or crisp green beans. For a lighter side, opt for a citrus-flecked salad or a showstopping whole cauliflower. Pair those with potato dishes both savory and sweet. You can't go wrong with spuds that are stacked, swirled, baked or gratinéed.
Brussels Sprouts with Honey-Glazed Pearl Onions and Capocollo
The salty richness of bacon, ham, or other cured meats round out the bitterness of Brussels sprouts, turning the oft-reviled veggie into something transcendent. The addition of sweet pearl onions and honey just adds another dimension on top of that. The flavor of capocollo, made from pork shoulder, is very similar to prosciutto or Serrano ham; you can substitute either if necessary.
