Take this hearty and unusual three-bean salad as your contribution to a summer picnic or potluck. It’s quick to prepare for a weeknight dinner at home, too, with turkey burgers or grilled chicken kebabs.
This flavorful and colorful salad comes together quickly with an assist from rotisserie chicken. Use the chicken breast to get the bulk of your meat, but any chicken meat will work just fine. Substitute Greek yogurt for part of the mayonnaise to reduce both the number of calories and fat in the sauce. Adjust the amount of curry seasoning to your own taste.
Try out this summertime special. A perfect addition to any potluck! Delicious, sweet, seasonal vegetables are the base of this pasta dish and the lemon vinaigrette adds a light, tangy finish. Experiment with roasted fennel to add another level of flavor. Optional: Add crumbled feta on top.
Perk up your picnic with this bright, savory salad featuring strawberries and wheat berries. If you’re bringing this salad to a picnic, pack the crumbled goat cheese and strawberries in separate containers from the salad and sprinkle on just before serving. The blend of flavors are a great complement to grilled chicken or fish.
If you are planning on making chicken this week, cook an extra pound and save it to make this salad later. It’s an easy and colorful salad that can be eaten on its own, in a lettuce leaf or in a sandwich.
Break out of your salad rut and make this tangy treat, with sparkling grapefruit sections, crunchy edamame and creamy avocado. It’s filling enough for a light vegetarian meal, or serve as a side for an Asian main course.
In this easy pasta version of the Italian classic, the Caprese becomes a meal, gets a little sparkle from lemon, and can be made anytime of the year by using arugula instead of basil. Great for potlucks, since it travels well.
