If you struggle, like I do, to come up with the perfect side dish that makes everyone happy and isn't the same old same, this collection of recipes if for you!

As much as I love old favorites, it’s nice to mix things up and bring new flavors and textures to the table, especially for special occasions like the holidays.

If you're attending a party or dinner and hate showing up empty handed, this collection of holiday dishes to bring to your next holiday party checks the boxes.

1. Cranberry Apple Stuffed Acorn Squash Recipe

This recipe for our cranberry apple stuffed acorn squash is hearty and memorable, bringing together some of the tastiest winter flavors in one unique dish that will put the perfect spin on festive side dish for your event. The squash gets roasted then stuffed with the filling then topped with chopped pecans for a mix of spices, flavors and textures that your friends will love.

2. Greek Roasted Potatoes and Green Beans Recipe

These Greek roasted potatoes and green beans might just be the perfect side dish, leveling up the classic potatoes and veggies one often expects as a side dish. The combination of lemon, feta and mint is bright and delicious, making a perfect pairing with roasted meats and poultry at a more formal holiday dinner. You can make these potatoes in under an hour, too, making them great for the busy holiday seasons.

3. Winter Salad with Citrus Vinaigrette Recipe

Who doesn’t love a fresh salad? Especially during the holidays when so much of the food we're eating is sweet and heavy. The best part about this winter salad with our simple, homemade citrus vinaigrette is the zesty, unexpected blend of flavors that come alive. The pomegranate is my favorite touch!

4. Gnocchi Casserole Recipe

This gnocchi casserole is an awesome side dish to pair with any meal. Filling, hearty and rich, this recipe can be modified for vegetarians by omitting or replacing the meat, so you can cater to any number of guests. The best part is that gnocchi has become so popular that companies have made it even more versatile. Swap out cauliflower gnocchi to sneak in even more veggies!

5. Vanilla Pumpkin Skillet Cornbread Recipe

This vanilla pumpkin skillet cornbread is going to change the game at your dinner table. Somewhere between sweet and savory, this delicious spin on traditional cornbread doubles as a light dessert or a perfect side. For bringing it along to a party, I love the idea of serving it right from the skillet.
