Cooking & Kitchen Tips: Side Dishes & Salads

  • For a great seasoning, squeeze fresh lemon juice on your cooked vegetables instead of salt.
  • Add fresh herbs such as basil, oregano or chives to your next summer salad.
  • Make herb butter for corn on the cob by mixing butter in a food processor with fresh, chopped dill, thyme or basil.
  • To give a richer texture to any salad dressing, whisk in some nonfat yogurt.
  • To avoid sticky rice, don't stir it while it is cooking.
  • A good way to reheat rice without overcooking it is to steam it in a collander or sieve over a pot of boiling water, without letting the rice touch the water.
