Ideas for a portable side dish that is sweetish, but not cloying/dessert-like - use of seasonal veggies a plus.

What about a not-too-sweet sweet potato casserole, perhaps roasted sweet potatoes and apples, or couscous with butternut squash, apples, and a light maple dressing- Hope this sparks some ideas.

This farro salad has a slightly sweet vinaigrette that you may enjoy. And it utilizes whatever seasonal veggies you want to add... http://theheritagecook...

you can roast butternut squash (cubed) with olive oil, kosher salt, 1 tsp of sugar and some thyme or rosemary at 450F for 20 minutes, stir then another 10 minutes. It is my favorite.

Pasta salad with a nice vinaigrette travels well, can be eaten at room temp and gets better a day later. Depending on the veggies, cook before hand or raw.

Here's my favorite side, for this purpose. http://www.food52.com/recipes...
If you're worried about sweetness, add a tablespoon or two of lime juice at the end, after tasting it. The parsnips add a fun, spicy touch to the squash. It's one of those dishes about which people will ask, "What's in this, anyway? What am I tasting?" Have fun!! ;o)
