Community Picks -- Dinner Party Sides

October 24, 2013

The results are in -- here are the recipes our community loved from the Your Most Impressive Dinner Party Side contest, brought to you by Electrolux!

Once again, we want to give a big thanks to all of our volunteer recipe testers for your thoughtful comments and for helping us continue to strengthen our recipe recommendations. You can read the winning headnote and tester's comments by clicking through to the Community Picks recipes -- the comments are at the top. And even if the recipe you tested wasn't chosen as a CP, please feel free to leave your testing notes in the recipe's comments section. Constructive criticism is always encouraged!
