Re: Anyone know a recipe for a green side dish?

If you're going to be able to cook what you bring once you're there, then I'd say green beans - that always seems very Thanksgiving-y to me. You can throw some slivered almonds into them to make them festive. (Consider bringing your own pot - those sometimes run short on Thanksgiving.)
Stove and microwave space is usually at a premium, though, so if you can't cook once you're there, consider asparagus. It is apparently quite correct to eat this hot, cold, or room temperature and I love it with just lemon juice squeezed over it. There are some asparagus recipes in the Recipe Index - perhaps one of them will look good.
However, if there is a great green side dish from your homeland, consider bringing that. I think most people would be charmed to try something a little different.
I have to agree with Julie E though - at least where I'm from (the South), that green bean casserole is the standard side dish. It's basically IF wrapped in fat, dairy, fat, MSG, and fat, but man is it good!
Enjoy your Thanksgiving!
