Best American Side Dishes: 500 practical recipes for everything but the main course.

Cooks today are looking for more creative ways to round out their meals. They still want the basics like how to make fluffy white rice and mashed potatoes, but they also want to know how to make really good risotto and pommes Anna—or perhaps a fresh-flavored dip for crudités (that doesn’t involve a soup mix).

With Best American Side Dishes, the editors of Cook’s Illustrated provide more than 500 recipes for dishes to round out every kind of meal—from weeknight suppers to holiday celebrations. Packed with more than 250 illustrations, Best American Side Dishes shows you step-by-step how to prepare vegetables for crudités, clean salad greens, and cut potatoes for frying. Ingredient tastings and equipment testings rate extra-virgin olive oil, mayonnaise, paring knives, salad spinners, and more, so you know just what brands to buy (and which to avoid).

Whether you’re looking for just the right combination of appetizers to serve before a special meal or easy sides to serve with weeknight suppers, Best American Side Dishes is here to lend a hand with all the recipes and know-how you’ve come to expect from the editors at Cook’s Illustrated.
