Side dishes invite improvisation. Unlike the turkey, which bears the burden of being THE entree, sides are varied and plentiful on the holiday table. If you don’t like one, choose another. So this year, wake them up and shake them up. Be daring; be clever. You won’t be snubbing tradition, just improving on it.
