7 Simple & Sensational Sides

Posted by Tamara Monroe on Dec 18, 2014 5:39:03 AM

It’s about that time of year when we’re starting to salivate at the thought of eating our way through the holidays. In celebration of this annual benchmark, we’ve compiled a list of side dishes, some traditional, some a bit unorthodox, for you to try out as you create your menu or your contribution to the potluck.

Whether your style is to contribute a classic side to the family table or feverishly scour Pinterest for the next big thing, we’re here to save you some time and the stress of waiting in those pre-holiday checkout lines.

We’ve pulled together seven tasty side dishes featuring items you can get delivered right to your doorstep in your Boston Organics box!
