I'm all for being traditional for a christmas lunch, but we absolutely detest brussel sprouts. We need to have some (green) vegetable on the table. I've been doing some research online and most menus include red cabbage, butternut squash, green beans, as popular examples for a side dish.
It may sound really trivial but i'm all for having a a vibrant set of colours on the table. Turkey's brown (or bronze), potatoes' yellow/brown/golden, cranberry sauce's red, gravy is brown (again), butternut squash with pecans and roquefort's overall colour, again orange/brown...I would add the red cabbage but I would really like something green. There isnt that many of us (four people) to do more than 2 vegetable side dishes, maybe this could even be too much.
Any suggests for great greens that are festive, yet simple and easy to digest are all welcome here.
Thanks in advance.
