Make sides thestar
Forget one big main course and focus on what really shines now: fresh veggies, sweet fruit, and bright herbs.
Drizzle cut-up vegetables
with olive oil, salt, and pepper—or coat with mayonnaise mixed with mustard—and throw on the grill.
Spread thick yogurt
on a plate, top with crudités, drizzle with olive oil, and sprinkle with salt and chile flakes.
Pickle some crunchy veggies
by slicing them thinly and soaking them in a mixture of sugar, salt, and vinegar for at least 20 minutes.
Cut vegetables into matchsticks
and toss with lime juice, fish sauce, and a touch of sugar. Then top with peanuts.
Combine avocado slices, tomatoes, and other veggies
(like radishes) and toppings (such as nuts and cheese) in lettuce cups and splash them with hot sauce.
