This dish always conjures up memories of Mom's traditional Christmas dinner with all the trimmings. Everyone loves green beans when they're dressed up in a creamy suace and topped with golden french-fried onions.—Christy Hinrichs, Parkville, Missouri
This hearty warm pasta salad features so many flavors and textures, it's amazing they all fit in one bowl! "The sesame oil and soy sauce give it an Asian flair," shares Betty Mitchem of Satsuma, Alabama.
The recipe for this pretty medley comes from Elizabeth MacAulay in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island. "Last spring, when asparagus was in the stores, my sister found this recipe, tried it and thought I might like it, too," she notes. "This fast-to-fix side dish is perfect after a busy day at work."
Crisp carrots, green beans, water chestnuts, garbanzo beans and more combine with bottled dressing in this sensational salad. "I created this medley when I wanted something easy, delicious and healthy," relates Ronda Leuth of Le Claire, Iowa.
I don't mask tastes with heavy sauces, and I use oils sparingly. This is an easy-to-fix stir-fry offers a delightful garlic-orange sauce that keeps the spotlight on the vegetables.—Lee Ann Odell, Erie , Colorado
