Strawberry-Rhubarb Bars are a classic. The addition of ginger gives it a bit of a kick, and the icing adds just the right sweetness to the mouth-puckering rhubarb.

Macaroni Salad

This traditional summertime classic side gets even better when it's dressed with Dijon mustard, onions, and tarragon. Cubes of cheddar cheese add delicious protein and calcium to the salad.

Potluck Chicken Tetrazzini

This dish is loaded with fresh asparagus, sweet peppers, and mushrooms. Lemon peel gives the from-scratch sauce a unique accent.

Broccoli-Raisin-Cauliflower Salad

Broccoli salad is always popular. Add cauliflower for a little dazzle and bump up the flavor with a new sweet-spicy honey-and-cider vinegar dressing.

Baked Butter Beans with Mustard

With smoky bacon and a hint of rosemary, a combo of butter beans and great northerns makes a rich side dish.

Roasted Squash and Pepper Tart

After caramelizing vegetables in the oven, drizzle them with balsamic vinegar to make them extra-sweet. A little more baking crisps the puff pastry crust, then it's an easy flip to a serving board.

Pulled Pork and Peach Sandwiches

This pulled pork recipe provides hearty sandwiches for more than a dozen people. A slow cooker makes pulling together the meat filling almost effortless.

Best-Ever Carrot Cake

Less sweet than the traditional version, this lemony dessert is studded with pineapple chunks and pecans. Made with less fat than the traditional cake, it has about a third fewer calories.

Sassy Turkey Burgers

Prove turkey burger naysayers wrong -- this healthier version of a regular beef patty gets kick from jalapenos and salsa, and might convince diners to abandon beef altogether.

Mushrooms and Pasta

Mushroom lovers will delight in this garlicky sauce filled with tender 'shrooms. It's versatile, too: Serve it over pasta, rice, or chicken.

Mushrooms in Ginger Sauce

The secret ingredient to this ginger-infused side? Unsweetened coconut milk, which adds a tropical twist to this Asian-inspired veggie mix.

Pork and Peanut Burgers

Add peanuts, a kid-pleasing source of protein, to pork patties, peanut butter to the chili sauce topping, and peanuts to the top of this burger for a tasty summer sandwich.

Green Beans with Lime

Making this zippy side couldn't be easier. Simply cook green beans in hot oils and drizzle with lime juice. For more crunch, add sliced almonds during the last five minutes of cooking.

Caramelized Carrots

Caramelizing these carrots adds sweetness, making them more palatable to picky eaters. Finish with cayenne cream sauce.

Onions with Pasta Nests

Don't be scared off by the pounds of onions needed for this recipe -- caramelizing them gives them a subtle sweetness to offset their strong flavor. Coiled pasta provides the perfect "nest" for the veggies.

Wine-Poached Beets

Deepen the already-sweet quality of beets with a touch of brown sugar, then balance the caramelized flavor by poaching them in dry red wine.
