Though we ourselves are well past our salad days, in the sense of being ‘young’ and ‘green,’ we offer you now a week’s worth of salads, happy as we are to make any day a salad day. Each of these recipes does indeed offer up a bit of green, whether in the form of lettuces or fresh herbs or even green vegetables; as for the ‘young’ attribute, count on the freshness of the ingredients and the zingy flavors of the dressings in these recipes to enliven your palate and put a spring back in your step — these good-for-you salads are just plain GOOD!
Whether as a luncheon plate, wholesome side, or wholemeal offering these salads are unique. Watch for Herby Feta and Nectarine Salad with Lemon Poppy Seed Dressing; Warm Chickpea Salad; Turkey Meatball Caesar Salad; Runner Bean, Smoked Trout, and Potato Salad; Spiced Cauliflower with Chickpeas, Herbs, and Pine Nuts; and New Potato, Red Onion, Cashew, and Tarragon Salad.
Youth and inexperience may be well behind us, but we’re not too old to enjoy these salad days to the fullest!
