My family loves a good steak dinner, but with busy schedules, I'm often thinking about ways to put new and simple twists on things. This salad is flavored with the freshness of lemon and cilantro and is one of my husband's favorite weeknight dishes. —Lyndsay Wells, Ladysmith, British Columbia
My husband never cared for sweet potatoes until he married me. I tell him it must be my cooking! He can't resist dipping into a bowl of these crunchy chips. They're a nice change from regular potato chips.—Janelle Lee, Appleton, Wisconsin.
When it comes to vegetable dishes, this traditional one is at the top of my list. The wonderful sweet-sour aroma and taste remind me of home. Plus, it looks so pretty on the table.

My husband and I farm ranch in central Texas. I enjoy cooking, especially when I'm trying out new recipes shared by friends or by other Country Woman subscribers. (I love CW!)
Meet the Cook: Especially during fall and winter, this recipe is a favorite. With its red color, it looks great served at Christmastime. It's nice for taking to potlucks as well.
My husband and I have two grown children. I teach home economics.
