Looking for suggestions for something to provide contrast with all the sweet, heavy, mushy carb-y sides.
Brussel sprouts and broccoli hated by most.
We will have a mixed green salad with lemon vinaigrette. And what else? Currently under consideration (but would welcome other thoughts):
Green beans with marcona almonds
Green beans in little packages wrapped with bacon (or scallion for the vegetarians).
Roasted or sauteed broccoli raab with fennel
Greens (kale or spinach) with pinenuts, raisins, apples
Braised endive (but I think too mushy).
Rest of menu: Turkey, mashed potato, roasted sweet potato, mac and cheese, truly weird family stuffing recipe, salad, cranberry sauces, cornbread.
