This creamy dish resembles traditional rice risotto, only it’s quicker and easier to make. Fresh herbs enhance the tender orzo pasta and sweet butternut squash. Try it as a warming side dish for pork.—Country Woman Test Kitchen
People who prefer food with some tang find this corn salad particularly appealing. It's a pretty dish besides—and very economical. If you're like me and enjoy growing your own ingredients, you won't have to pick up much at the store.
The chilled salad our Test Kitchen tossed together is an ideal warm-weather refresher. Golden corn, grape tomatoes and fresh basil bring the very best of summer to the table. Subtly salty olives add an interesting contrast to the other sun-sweetened veggies
Round out a variety of menus with this side dish that lends a delicious pop of color. “If you have them, use leftover veggies. People are always surprised at how easy this dish is!”
