Were nearing sweet corn season. Youre really giving up corn and black bean salsa?

It can often feel as though a restaurant is playing out the motions with its side dishes. Sure, you'll get a plate of cottage fries or a pasta salad with a high degree of mayonnaise. But what's lost in that shuffle of Tupperware is the fact that great side dishes, like beautiful character actors, can turn around an entire performance.

How many times have you ruined a meal but found yourself delighted by its unheralded accompaniment? Sides are the amuse-bouches of the bar world - case in point: the simply dressed cucumber and tomato salad (just a nice dash of balsamic vinegar) from Charlie Hooper's. Well today is the day that the supporting roasted, pickled and cheese-covered vegetables get to be front and center. If you could have only one side dish for the rest of your life - and yes, fries and macaroni and cheese are sides - what's it going to be?
