15 Show-Stealing Holiday Side Dishes

When it comes to holiday dinners, a rib roast, ham, or leg of lamb may have the diva’s position in the center of the plate, but most of us are just as passionate — if not more — about all the foods that surround it. In fact, we know folks who pass on the main so they can give all their love and attention (and appetite) to the sides.

At Gelson’s, we’re all about the sides! Our chefs have been cranking out scrumptious stuffings, salads, and veggie sides since the beginning of fall, and we’ve got a collection of great recipes for you — some traditional, some newly minted traditions in the making.

(Psst! If you love side dishes but don’t feel like cooking, we can make them for you — check out our catering menu!)
