50 Healthy Holiday Side Dishes to enjoy at your family’s holiday gatherings! These delicious recipes are loaded with flavor and are the best side dishes the internet has to offer!
We’re jettisoning into the holiday season, and aside from spending valuable time with family, holidays are all about side dishes.
Family. Side dishes. That’s it.
Since I’m a lady (vicious lie) who tries to keep side dishes
mayo-free somewhat healthy, I find it can be difficult each year to decide on a menu that’s not get-out-of-town indulgent, yet is still pleasing to guests.
So in preparation for my holidays and yours, I came rummaged up with 50 healthy holiday side dishes from all over blog town to help us all do some planning. And eating. Happy side dishing, my friends!
