Part of the 30-Minute Meals For Dummies

Does your meal not feel complete without a side dish? Side dishes don’t have to be difficult and time-consuming. Try these handy ideas to inspire you and dress up your meals:

  • Italian marinated vegetables: Prepare a bag of frozen Italian mixed vegetables according to the package directions. Drain well and dress with bottled Caesar salad dressing.

  • Cheesy mashed potatoes: Prepare instant mashed potatoes according to the package directions. Stir in a handful of shredded sharp Cheddar cheese and let the cheese melt in.

  • Spinach salad: Pour a bag of baby spinach leaves into a salad bowl. Add a can of drained, diced beets. Sprinkle on crumbled blue cheese. Add your favorite dressing and toss.

  • Pear and lettuce salad: Open a large can of pear halves and arrange 2 halves on each lettuce-lined plate. Sprinkle on sliced almonds. Dress with bottled poppy seed dressing.
