Side Dishes for Baked Easter Ham

With side dishes, we want to use our sides to showcase the Easter Ham itself, without drawing attention away from the main event. So, let’s focus on sides that emphasize the salty porkiness (Is that even a word? It is now!) of the ham, and perhaps enhance it with a bit of fruit.

Roasted Baby Carrots With Orange & Honey

Spring is all about babies, so this first side is perfect to accompany the salty ham. Tossed with honey and orange zest, it is a teensy bit fruity and sweet, but enhances the richness of the ham with the smokiness of the roasting process. Excellent choice for a side to your Easter Ham

Oh My Gosh, is there anything cuter than multicolored baby potatoes? And is there anything tastier than truffle salt? I think not! You have GOT to try these! Trust us! It's worth the trip to the gourmet store to get some truffle salt!

Finally, what better way to enhance the ham's flavors while creating a show-stopping table, than to add a simple apple and fennel salad   to your guests? Light and refreshing, this is a beautiful example of how simple will almost always win over complex. Especially at an Easter table.
