Unexpected Thanksgiving Sides That Guests Can't Resist
by LILY MCELVEEN
Pomegranate Chicken Salad
A fresh salad can help cut through all the grease and carbs of the rest of the meal. It makes a refreshing counterpoint to stuffing and megamenu potatoes.
Herby Pecan Rice Pilaf
This savory rice pilaf features roasted pecans, rosemary, thyme, rice cooked in chicken stock, and toasted nuts. It is the perfect complementary side dish.
Grilled Artichokes
Served alongside an aioli made with mayonnaise, garlic, parmesan, lemon juice, Dijon mustard, and cayenne pepper, grilled artichokes will be a favorite.
Sweet Potato Latkes
This crispy and caramelized alternative to traditional latkes is perfect for Thanksgiving, especially when topped with sour cream for added flavor.
Cucumber Salad
Serve creamed cucumber slices for a fresh, hydrating dish full of flavor. Sour cream and onion offer sharpness, while fresh dill gives it a slightly sweet note.
