This salsa is easy to make, and it's flavorful but not too spicy. I always get requests for this when we offer to bring a dish to a party. At a recent event, my husband caught a woman eating it out of the bowl with a spoon!
I had never made brussels sprouts before and my husband didn't like them, but for the sake of variety I tried several different ways to prepare them. I came up with these few ingredients to enhance them. The recipe is simple but very tasty.
"I made this salad one day when a friend called and said she wanted to come over," relates Kristin Troyer of Woodland, Washington. "I ran to the garden, picked the veggies and put it together in less than 30 minutes!"
THE nice sweet and sour blend enhances all the ingredients in this salad. Slightly different than cole slaw, it’s a good dish to bring to pot-lucks and picnics. It keeps well and the taste is refreshing.
The combination of wild rice, mango chutney, cranberries and curry powder give this side dish for two an exotic flavor. It's delicious and beautiful, and tastes best when butternut squash is in season. —Elaine Sweet, Dallas, Texas
For a speedy, health-conscious side dish or snack, Patricia Fredericks of Oak Creek, Wisconsin offers these fun wedges. “They're just as tasty as the deep-fried version, but with less mess,” says Patricia.
MY SISTER and I developed this sandwich one day when we had some spicey everything bagels left over. I have often served it to my friends as a casual lunch. The total lack of fussiness for the sandwich allows me to spend quality time with our guests.
