Packed with heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids, this low-fat fish recipe ensures you'll eat right at dinner tonight. Fresh herbs and lemon slices brighten it up.

Catfish 'N' Chips

This healthier spin on classic fish and chips has double benefits: Catfish is low in fat, and the use of sweet potatoes in place of some of the white potatoes boosts vitamins.

Tilapia Puttanesca

A chunky topping of Kalamata olives, diced tomatoes, capers, parsley, and onion adds pizzazz to healthy tilapia.

Classic Succotash

Scott Peacock creates perfect succotash with five ingredients: sweet corn, tender butter beans, a hint of country ham, and a bit of butter and cream.

Tote-and-Slice Loaf Sandwich

Ideal for a potluck or party, this mile-high sandwich features salami, dried tomatoes, green olives, banana peppers, and a creamy pesto spread.

Watermelon Cooler Punch

Blended watermelon combined with white grape juice, lime juice, sugar, mint, and club soda makes a refreshing summer drink.

Sparkling Peach Punch

Impress party guests with this fizzy drink featuring peach nectar, fresh peach slices, lemon juice, and ginger ale.

Skillet Chicken Salad Pitas

Chicken marinated in Asian sweet chili sauce, and combined with fresh veggies and a creamy dressing, makes a delicious filling for toasted pita bread.

Basil-Tomato Salad

The flavors of pesto mix and mingle into a salad of fresh basil and tomatoes from the garden. Add chicken or fish to make it a dinner salad.

Pork and Noodle Salad

A ginger-soy dressing gives a bit of Asian flair to this crisp pork and cabbage salad. Easy wonton crisps make a delightful side dish.

Southern Cobb Salad

A creamy cheese dressing pulls together crisp fried chicken, black-eyed peas, sweet peppers, and pecans for a satisfying salad.

Smoked Salmon and Melon Salad

Make this delicious layered salad for brunch or a light, no-cook dinner. Lively, spicy-sweet cardamom complements the smoky salmon and cool melon.

Saucy Country Ribs

Bake ribs until tender in the oven and then grill them with our trio of sauces: a citrus sauce infused with rosemary, a spicy rhubarb sauce, and a sweet mustard sauce.

Sweet and Tangy Four-Bean Salad

Update the standard three-bean salad with a fourth bean--edamame--and a bold dressing that includes mustard, garlic, and red wine.

Potato Salad with Country Ranch Dressing

This potato salad recipe is super creamy thanks to a combo of ranch dressing and mayo. It's also wonderfully flavorful: The potatoes are roasted with onions and garlic.
