It’s Thanksgiving! Time for putting the final touches on your Thanksgiving dinner menu.  For some people that means bringing out the tried and true Thanksgiving side dishes, the age-old recipes that have become standards for your family, whether they taste particularly good or not. (Chances are you’ve had your fill of canned vegetables and Jell-O salad over the years.)
Are you in the mood to mix up the menu a bit? Try these easy and fabulous side dishes, reminiscent of the classics, but with a decidedly modern twist.  We’re confident everyone will appreciate them.
Instead of Aunt May’s green bean casserole, try EatingWell’s recipe for fresh green beans with caramelized onions.
For an easy update to a traditional fruit salad, try roasted pears with blue cheese by The Barefoot Contessa on FoodNetwork.com.

Instead of creamed spinach, try a fresh spinach salad – here’s one from Ocean Spray which we love.
