    This is one of the side dishes that is always on my Easter menu. It has a fresh, light taste, and the mint really brightens up the flavor. It can be made ahead a day early through Step 1, if desired.

    Recipe #284466

    I found this recipe nearly 20 years ago in the Toronto Sun and have made it several times over the years. It makes enough for a family of three, like mine, to enjoy over several weeks, since it doesn't require any processing and keeps well in the fridge. The recipe calls for cider vinegar but I have made it with white vinegar and think it tastes much better that way. Please note: Chilling time is under cooking time.

    This is a great side dish for CHristmas, Thanksgiving or Easter Dinner. Even those who don't like Turnips love these. From the Best of Bridge, but tailored to how I like them.

    Recipe #106917

    This is an easy and tasty salad. It is great for picnics or cook-outs. I received this from a friend at my bridal shower. The majority of the cook time is chilling time - the salad needs to chill and marinate for about 3-8 hours before serving. Fresh cracked black pepper works really well in this.

    Recipe #456173

    While this recipe is good when freshly made, it is better if it chills over night. From BBC Good Food.

    An easy and yummy way to do carrots. From BBC Good Food.

    Recipe #454720

    A quick, easy way to prepare cabbage for a weeknight meal. From BBC Good Food.

    Recipe #454715

    I have made this recipe from BBC Good Food twice and each time I enjoyed it even more. It makes quite a bit but the leftovers reheat really well. The original recipe calls for 1/2 swede. I'm not sure what a swede is but I think it's like a turnip so I substituted one large turnip.

    A delicious side dish, perfect with pork, chicken or fish.

    Recipe #441284

    Mashed potatoes with addition of cauliflower and garlic.

    Recipe #256315

    This recipe from Canadian chef Michael Smith is wonderful made with fresh vegetables from the garden or farmer's market. The leftovers reheat well, too!

    A super easy way to prepare new baby potatoes from BBC Good Food. I could eat the entire pan myself!

    Recipe #440286

    A slightly different treatment of cauliflower but still delicious.

    Recipe #433546

    This recipe from Canadian Living makes the most out of fresh summer produce. Chilling time is cooking time.

    Recipe #434038

    I have been making this recipe for years and we enjoy it as much today as we did when I first made it 20 years ago!

    Recipe #431686

    This is a delicious butternut squash recipe from Ina Garten / The Barefoot Contessa. We really enjoy this during the holidays. It is best when the squash is cut in medium to large chunks so that the outside gets a maple-flavored crust, and the inside stays soft and delicious.

    Recipe #106627

    This recipe from BBC Good Food makes a nice main course for lunch served with a green salad but can also be served as a side dish with beef, pork or chicken.

    Recipe #420751

    This recipe from Anna Olson is so good! I made it for a staff potluck at work and there wasn't a single bite left. The potatoes may need more than an hour to cook so check them at the end of the cooking time to see if they are tender.

    Recipe #408659

    This recipe from the Canadian Living website is a very scrumptious way to serve a vegetable is scorned by many. I served it as a side dish with roast lamb and they went over a real treat. This dish reheats well also so it can be made ahead of time.
