This salad is a bit of work, but it’s so delicious and always impresses guests. Mache can be hard to find, so you may omit it and just use arugula, but it adds a great nutty flavor if you can find it.

Don’t expect conventional nutrients from mushrooms, but they have hidden anti-cancer activity and may stimulate immune function, research finds. Add red pepper’s vitamin C, olive oil’s good fat, and the antioxidants in basil and garlic for a very healthful salad.

Beets were my sworn enemy until I tried them like this, it’s a great way to use root vegetables. I think the beets add a beautiful red color to the dish, but if it bothers you to serve pinkish vegetables, substitute parsnips, rutabaga, or any similar vegetable; be creative!

I wanted to do something different as a vegetable side dish. It was Thanksgiving, so I got a bunch of root vegetables and roasted them. They were a hit and are now a staple at our holiday table. I cook them during the year sometimes, as well.
