This colorful veggie recipe happened by accident. One evening , I didn't have room on the grill for all the things I wanted to prepare, so I threw two of the dishes together and came up with this medley. It goes great with any grilled meat. —Pam Gaspers, Hastings, Nebraska
Here in Iowa, asparagus patches grow wild along the roads. My husband and I often go asparagus hunting on Saturday and Sunday mornings. A tangy mustard sauce complements the fresh asparagus in this easy recipe.

When my husband and I were married 12 years ago, my mother gave me a cookbook she created of my favorite recipes. This creamy dish was among them. Now it's popular with my family. I often take it to carry-in suppers.
This recipe from my husband's grandmother is my favorite way to use home canned tomatoes. The bacon-flavored tomato mixture and tender dumplings are delicious with roasted or grilled meats...and the leftovers are great!
While broccoli florets and chunks of red pepper give this dish plenty of color, it's the fresh gingerroot, garlic, soy sauce and sesame oil that round out the flavor.

These crisp crunchy slices, seasoned with celery seed and mustard seed, have a sweet-sour taste that everyone is sure to relish! The colorful blend of yellow squash, sweet red pepper and chopped onion makes a beautiful presentation.
This savory side dish gets its lovely flavor from orange juice, orange zest and nutmeg. The smooth syrupy sauce is a great complement to the squash. I serve this on Christmas Eve, and everyone loves it!
My husband and I love this recipe as newlyweds, and now that our children are grown, we are enjoying it again. As soon as the weather turns cool, we get hungry for this squash dish, filled with savory ground beef and topped with a sprinkling of cheese.
