Perfect French Side Salad by Nancy Miyasaki

This is a simple tasting but wonderful side salad. The ingredients listed are not that easy to find, but you should feel free to substitute other lettuces and herbs that are available. The green beans are important though...so include them if you can. And the dressing is a must. Mix and enjoy!

Shaved Brussels Sprout and Farro Salad

Shaved Brussels Sprout and Farro Salad by John Spottiswood

This recipe is adapted from one by Susan Spungen. I thought it was phenomenal. If you can't find Farro, you coud substitute brown rice or pearl barley, but get Farro if you can. It's wonderful. You might consider serving this as a side for Thanksgiving. It would make a great addition.

You could try this with just about any fish with good results I think. I…
