This is a great, easy summer salad with a lot of options as to mixing and matching. When the Gorgonzola cheese and balsamic vinaigrette combine it gets all tart and creamy!

Beets and Greens

Roasted beet pieces nestled among their sauteed greens makes a beautiful, delicious side dish. If yellow beets are available, double the recipe using a bunch of red and a bunch of yellow, they're gorgeous! I think these go especially well with pork or chicken. This recipe can easily be doubled, tripled, or expanded to whatever amount you need without adding very much to the preparation time.

Beans and greens are a perfect combination; earthy and satisfying. This recipe for Swiss chard with garbanzo beans, onion, and fresh tomato is brightened with lemon juice and makes a perfect vegetarian main dish or a tantalizing side dish for fish or meat.

If you like kale, you'll love it in a salad with feta cheese, walnuts, and grapes.

Kale is a bit of an acquired taste I think, but if you can get used to it, it's so good for you! Wishing you the best.

Spinach Salad with Warm Bacon-Mustard Dressing

Submitted by: brightlightz 
This is a classic steakhouse-style spinach salad with the absolute best warm bacon-mustard dressing I've ever had! Looks and tastes like a lot of work, but can be prepared in no time! This salad can easily be converted to a main dish salad by adding strips of grilled chicken breast.

If you like greens you will love this recipe. The bacon and onions give them a wonderful flavor. Add more red pepper for a little more spice.

Tis the season for fresh from the garden but don't forget the freezer of your grocery for ready to go greens. I recently used frozen collard greens for the first time in a soup. A 1 lb store brand bag was a buck. Super easy to nuke and add to my soup. Frozen would be quick and easy to add to any drink/smoothie you might make and no washing/prepping involved. Plus I always have the problem of not having enough room to fit the larger bulky greens in my fridge. A couple of bunches of fresh kale, chard, collards, take up a LOT of room.
