Christmas Side Dishes

The fun thing about Christmas side dishes is that unlike Thanksgiving, you're not locked into serving up traditional side dish recipes like candied yams or corn pudding (not that there's anything wrong with them!). Your holiday ham (or turkey, or crown roast) deserves some Christmastime pizzazz, so branch out: Try adding cardamom and ginger to make glazed carrots special, or introduce vibrant purple braised cabbage to the plate. Or showcase the colors of Christmas with fresh green cilantro tabbouleh studded with crimson cranberries. The flashier, the better - the tree shouldn't be the only thing that sparkles.
