Put your garden-fresh summertime veggies to good use in a colorful side dish that gets a little heat from Cajun seasoning. It pairs well with any entree, and it's quick and easy to prepare. —Nancy Dentler, Greensboro, North Carolina
IT SEEMS carrots are frequently on my menu. They're so easy to work with and are usually on hand.
This is one of my favorite recipes. I got it from a neighbor. We like to share recipes at our potluck suppers while we're eating all those delicious home-cooked dishes.

“Sugar snap peas are a delicious vegetable that often gets overlooked,” notes Mitzi Sentiff in Annapolis, Maryland. “We love the flavor of this crunchy side dish and its splash of lemon with broiled fish, chicken or pork.”
A handful of ingredients and a microwave are all our home economists needed to create this terrific treatment for fresh snow peas. A bit of lemon juice, some mince garlic and a dash of Italian seasoning make it a perfect addition to any meal.
“This is an old standby that’s always good,” Miriam Lavella assures from Kersey, Pennsylvania. The comforting side dish prepared with pears and raisins is not only quick to fix but has a delectable flavor.
