Recs for a Starter and a Side? Serving Moroccan braised lamb shanks & couscous

mrgdess | Dec 16, 2010 01:33 PM

I'm hosting a dinner party for 6 on Saturday and am in desperate need for a starter to have out when the guests arrive, and a vegetable side dish during dinner.

As a main course I'm serving braised Moroccan lamb shanks w/a toasted pine nut couscous. Dessert is a poached pear parfait. Ideally, the starter and vegetable side would be something I could make the day before and finish quickly before serving.

TIA
