This dessert gets added spark from a gingersnap crust and a luscious lemon sauce. The mix of sweet and tart is unexpected and delightful. I came up with the recipe based on several others I encountered on a trip to California with my husband for our 15th anniversary.
Feature moist tender meat, savory veggies and a flavorful sauce, this supper is among my specialties. My wife and I love hosting dinner parties, and it's one of the dishes we often serve to guests.—Garnett Brown Jr., Lexington, Kentucky
Gingered Cranberry-Carrot Slaw gives this meal a nice tang with its dried cranberries and sweet-tart pineapple dressing. It also complements Asian and Thai foods. Genise Krause of Sturgeon Bay, Wisconsin shared the recipe.
This cool, refreshing salad with crunchy nuts and apples makes me think of my mother and Thanksgiving. Mom prepared it each year for that holiday since apples were plentiful. She served it in a beautiful cut-glass bowl that belonged to my grandmother.
