Pickled red onions add a sweet, tart flavor to this easy green bean salad. Blanching the beans keeps them crisp-tender and helps maintain their bright color. It’s a delicious make-ahead side that can be served at room temperature or chilled.
This side dish is made with fresh corn on the cob, either grilled, or cut from the cob and sautéed on top of the stove. We combine it with mayonnaise, Mexican hot sauce, lime juice, jalapeño pepper, cilantro, and cotija cheese. It’s full of flavor and surprisingly easy to make. Tip Remove the husks and […]
I love the flavor combination of oranges and beets in this arugula salad. It’s a delicious and colorful side that’s both beautiful and packed with vitamins and minerals. Arugula is quite peppery, so I prefer to use a mixture of baby arugula and baby spinach, but you could also use all arugula, or even a […]

There’s something about the sweet taste of mandarin oranges paired with the saltiness of parmesan cheese. And this Caesar salad is versatile enough that you could easily swap out the parmesan for blue cheese or gorgonzola. I can make a meal just out of salad, and this is one of my favorites.
For this salad, I use romaine lettuce and radicchio, which is a variety of leaf-chicory. Its peppery flavor combines perfectly with the sweet taste of apples and dried cranberries. A creamy buttermilk dressing pulls it all together.
