Side and salad to go with pumpkin lasagna?

I am doing a post-Thanksgiving dinner (yet still in a Thanksgiving spirit) for a group of friends. I promised my daughter to make her favorite pumpkin lasagna (pumpkin or butternut squash, bacon, Italian sausage, sage, tomato, bechamel, nutmeg and parmesan). I would like to add an interesting side dish and salad, but have a hard time finding a good pairing, because lasagna is so complex and loaded with flavors. What do you recommend?

I was thinking something with pears, apples and blue cheese. Thank you!

I'd either go super simple - maybe blanched green bean salad and a fresh green salad with minimal toppings, maybe sliced almonds?

Or go Italian and make a brussels sprouts caesar? Great recipe here on Food52. https://food52.com/recipes...

Appetizer - small bites of something wìth a sharp or slightly bitter edge...maybe eggplant, endive, olive or artichoke (little or no bread bc the main dish is strong on grain).
Salad - something in the French style, served after the main, as a palate cleanser and transition to coffee or dessert. Watercress or arugula with oranges and onions in a classic vinaigrette.

I am making a brussels sprouts slaw for our family's traditional turkey dinner that I think would be a terrific side for your lasagna. It has thin-sliced brussels sprouts, chopped dates and hazelnuts, and a cider vinegar dressing. Could easily be adapted to other ingredients. http://www.feastingathome...
