Fresh Vegetable Sides from the Farmer's Market

Flavorful ingredients make good dishes great.
John McMillan

Take advantage of spring and summer, and enjoy these veggies at their peak. Convenience products are pretty good, but farmers market fresh makes a big difference in taste and texture. Peas and cabbage are in now; squash is just around the corner. Use these sides to perk up an ordinary supper, or skip the main dish and have a good ol' Southern veggie plate.

"Fresh Vegetable Sides" is from the May 2006 issue of Southern Living.
