Your local sandwich shop should consider itself warned: When you can make this reinterpretation of a classic Italian sub at home, you may not need to call in for one ever again. The arugula's kick blends with the heat of the soppressata. The fennel and fontina bring mellower flavors.
Whether as an appetizer, first course, or side dish, these easy and impressive soup and salad recipes will add variety to your Thanksgiving feast. Choose from salads centered on spinach, endive, fennel, green beans, and more. These soups and bisques feature butternut squash, sweet potato, carrot, parsnip, and other fall flavors.
