Use this to dress your salad or as a dipping sauce for cut vegetables. Don't like cilantro? No problem, just swap it out for Italian parsley or dill.

Hot & Sweet Rainbow Slaw
Very Good 4.2/5
(13 ratings)

Creamy cole slaw pairs well with fried chicken, but who needs all that mayo? This one uses Greek yogurt and a healthier mayo, plus a few other secret ingredients.

Broccoli is my favorite vegetable, but not everyone agrees with me. To convert people, I like to serve this simple recipe. Garlic sauteed in olive oil offers a sweet richness, and the lemon juice offers a nice tang.
If you are using fresh broccoli, peel the stalks and dice them before adding to the cooking water.

Crunchy Cucumber Salad
Very Good 4.1/5

Depending on how small you chop the veggies, this light summer side can be a salad or salsa. Pair the salad with grilled chicken or shrimp. As a dip, opt for endive, jicama slices, or lime tortilla chips.

Spring Rolls
Very Good 4.3/5
(78 ratings)

This recipe is really easy; it's really more of a process than a recipe. Rice paper wrappers, which are available in the ethnic sections of most larger supermarkets these days, are a great way to wrap your veggies and protein for a quick snack or light lunch.

Butternut Squash Mac and Cheese
Very Good 4.1/5

Butternut squash helps slim down this macaroni and cheese. You can't taste it, and it boosts the nutritional value of the dish!
