I love to use parsley in many dishes, and it suits the fresh taste of small red potatoes well. Even though they're easy to prepare, they look fancy and go great with baked ham. Eunice Stoen, Decorah, Iowa
Mom would prepare home-grown green beans using this recipe, and boy did they ever taste good. The bacon provides rich flavor and the brown sugar a touch of sweetness. This is one irresistible side dish.

Zesty and fresh-tasting, these bright, beautiful beet slices add spark to any meal. My mouth still begins to water when I think of how wonderful they tasted when Mother prepared them. Mildred Sherrer, Fort Worth, Texas
A colorful mix of zucchini, onion, celery, green pepper and tomato is at its tasty best in this simple side dish. Mom came up with this recipe as a way to use up her garden vegetables. It has the taste of summer.Sue Gronholz, Beaver Dam, Wisconsin
When your conventional oven is filled with the turkey and side dishes, these dressed-up brussels sprouts can be prepared in the microwave. I think you will agree the cheese topping makes these sprouts special enough to include in a holiday meal.

We're so pleased to have finally gotten an asparagus bed established! Now when I have a bounty of those tender spears, I pull out this recipe. Orange and pistachios complement the asparagus beautifully. Janice Mitchell
For almost 30 years, I've been preparing this zippy side dish for all sorts of gatherings. In fact, whenever I'm invited to an event that involves food, it's "understood" that I'll bring this casserole. Plus, it's a great way to use up hard-cooked eggs.
-Patricia Friend, Milledgeville, Georgia
This delicious cheesy casserole is made with the bounty from my garden. The dish includes a sunny medley of summer vegetables like eggplant, zucchini and tomatoes. It's so nice to cook with those abundant crops.
