Side dish for braised short ribs + risotto milanese?

Lemoncella | Apr 3, 2012 06:25 AM

Any recommendations for a side dish or accompaniments? The risotto and short ribs are pretty rich so I'm looking for something that might balance that with a lighter vegetable dish, but still robust enough that it won't seem like an afterthought.

The short ribs are braised in red wine and beef stock with a rosemary sprig, then finished with a run under the broiler covered by some kind of sweet/salty glaze I haven't figured out yet. The risotto contains marrow and saffron and wine.

Anyone have any ideas?
