Help ASAP! In Need of a Perfect Side Dish!

Hi Serious Eaters :-) This Friday, my aunt is hosting twenty of our relatives for an early Christmas celebration. She is making the dinner and I am pretty sure that a ham is her main course. She has asked me to bring a side dish. I know for sure she is also making pierogi and a broccoli side dish, so I should probably avoid anything that would have potatoes or broccoli as the star. I need some recommendations for your favorite sides! Something that will really wow everyone. Don't worry about calories, this is Christmas dinner so I'm not thinking about that, I just need your best ideas.

Please help! Ideas are very much appreciated, especially accompanied with links or copies of recipes.
