Holiday Dinner Side Dishes

I’m all about the side dishes for any big family meal. Be it Easter, Thanksgiving, or Christmas, I’m a vegetarian and that means I never do the main course. Today I’ve rounded up some amazing Christmas side dishes that pair well with your main course and will be big hits with everyone at your Christmas dinner! Loosen up that belt a little, it’s time to eat!

Christmas Tree Cheese Platter. My family always does a buffet style dinner on Christmas Eve and I think a cheese platter like this one from Raptor Mama would be perfect for that. You could also make a Christmas tree platter using fruits or vegetables or all three!
