Healthy Humpday – Holiday Side Dishes

(Think beyond the Green Bean Casserole!)

Holiday side dishes are often mundane and repetitious. Wouldn’t you like something a little more unique to wow your guests with this holiday season? We recently stumbled across some creative ways to prepare Brussels sprouts that transformed them from a basic vegetable into an elegant, easy, and entertaining holiday side dish. The same ingredient can be used to change the presentation of a basic bowl of green beans…greens to please everyone!
