When my mom and sister developed several food allergies, we had to modify many recipes. I substituted quinoa for couscous in this tabouleh. Now we make it all the time! —Jennifer Klann, Corbett, Oregon
A tangy dressing makes this refreshing vegetable blend especially pleasing. You could serve it as an appetizer or a side dish. Sometimes I use thinly sliced carrots, zucchini or pearl onions.
“You can enjoy this dish while the squash is still warm, but it also tastes great cold,” says Rani Long of Cold Spring, New York. You'll love how it captures the fresh flavors and bright colors of summer.
These potatoes are a speedy side dish that complements most any entree. Feta cheese adds a rich zesty flavor. A neighbor supplies me with garden-fresh chives, but you can use frozen or dried chives for more convenience.—Jean Komlos, Plymouth, Michigan
"Don’t count on having any leftovers with this delicious, simple dish. A friend gave me the recipe more than a decade ago, and it’s been a family favorite ever since!" --Beth McCaw of Nashville, Tennessee
My grandmother used to serve this side dish along with roast leg of lamb. With its fresh mint taste, it also makes a nice salad served chilled. It's simple but delicious.
