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.
