CATEGORY WINNEREntrées"I wanted to create a recipe for a festive meal with local ingredients that could be prepared ahead of time and assembled at the last minute. Everything except the avocado, because it turns brown, can be readied in advance and kept in separate containers, covered, and chilled. I like to serve this dinner salad with multigrain rolls." —Katherine Hinrichs, West Boothbay Harbor, Maine
