Don't miss out on all the ways to enjoy one of spring's brightest stars.
We'll start with Grilled Asparagus with Caper Vinaigrette. Briny capers are a lovely addition to Dijon vinaigrette—especially when drizzled on grilled asparagus.
One of the best (and simplest) sides in our magazine's history, this recipe was named Best Vegetable Side Dish in our 20th anniversary issue. The browned butter with a splash of balsamic vinegar adds an elegance that belies the simplicity of this approach.
This side dish salad combines several influences: The dates and orange are an Israeli touch; the pecans pay homage to the American South; and the quinoa is a high-protein grain from South America.
