THE FIRST TIME I bought a red cabbage, I didn't quite know what to do with it, but after some experimenting, I came up with this recipe. It has now become my fall "comfort food".
This side dish is compatible with a variety of meat entrees, but I especially like it with a pork roast or chops.

I WAS ANXIOUS the first time I tried this recipe, wondering if my family would like it. It was a big hit, though, and I was happy to find another idea for serving this prolific garden vegetable.
I serve it most often with chicken. It adds so much color to the plate.

I used this recipe as an occasion to get my kids involved in cooking. They had fun snapping ends off the beans and they delighted in whisking together the dressing ingredients. In addition I was surprised how much they liked the green beans with this hint of sweetness.
"I downsized the original recipe for this spicy side dish and adjusted it a bit for my husband and me," writes Sarah Gottschalk of Richmond, Indiana. "It's such a nice change from the usual baked potato...and healthier, too!"
I LOVE POTATOES prepared in any way. I came up with this recipe by combining two recipes for broccoli and potato "latkes".
These are easy to prepare and make a delicious side dish.

MY HUSBAND suggested I share this salad recipe. It's one of his favorites, which I created long ago in a moment of panic.
I'd opened the refrigerator to get out the makings for green salad and discovered I had only a couple lettuce leaves. The cottage cheese was a perfect substitute.
