Side Dishes to Serve with Holiday Ham

Holiday ham awakens our tongues to the joy of that perfect pairing of sweet and savory, so a side dish with a little bitterness can be a great complement to that meaty main. Ayesha Curry lends us her unique recipe for Brussels sprouts that includes roasted pears and cranberries, both fruits that come of age during the fall and early winter season. The holiday fruits complement the bitter, earthy Brussels sprouts flavor. Try it. With that sweet, tart fruit mingling with those mini-cabbages, you can tell your kids it's not vegetables, really.
