Salads and Sides

Salads and side dishes make dinner a meal.




The secret to salad success: aim for contrasting textures and flavors. Vary hot and cold items--like grilled chicken breast on a Caesar salad. Combine sweet and acidic, hot and sour, chewy and crisp. Fresh seasonal fruit add vibrant color to summer salads.


Main Dish Salads

A good salad makes an easy transition from lunch to dinner and is portable for potlucks and barbeques.
