Simple baked salmon with raspberry-pepper dressed greens

Maybe this is less of a recipe and more of an idea. Every so often life gets a little extra busy and you really want to enjoy something spectacular — without it taking any more of your time. I found this gorgeous bag of greens with edible flowers at the farmer’s market, then we picked up some fresh salmon — and that was that. It was totally satisfying, felt completely indulgent and couldn’t have been simpler.

Sesame-miso vinaigrette

This vinaigrette can serve double-duty as a marinade. I added a few tablespoons to some firm, cubed tofu overnight and grilled it (along with some veggies) the next day. I drizzled more vinaigrette over everything and a little brown rice — simple and de-lish.

Blueberry balsamic vinaigrette

Looks like a smoothie, right? I served this vinaigrette over spicy greens and grilled salmon. What to do with the rest? I’m thinking a salad with chicken and goat cheese, or perhaps even as a dip with a cheese and baguette plate?

Herbal balsamic vinaigrette

I serve this dressing drizzled over fresh beet greens, roasted beets, and toasted walnuts. Use whatever herbs you have — dill, mint and tarragon might also be nice.

Two trends I've noticed with my summer cooking lately: It's super-colorful, and everything's topped with fresh corn kernels. I love the sweetness and pop of fresh corn, and have been adding it to all sorts of dishes — salads, salsas, chilled soups, rice bowls ...

Cucumber-rice salad with tahini dressing, dill and mint

Grain-based salads are my favorite. Exhibit A: This red rice salad with cucumber, cilantro and mint is one of my go-tos. Exhibit B: This barley salad with spring vegetables makes my mouth water just thinking about it. Now I’ve found a new rice salad worthy of joining the recipe rotation. Tahini gives the dressing a nutty creaminess that I love, and cucumbers and herbs brighten things up. Enjoy!

Winter cobb salad with a creamy citrus dressing

I love the creaminess of cobb salad dressings, and the citrus flavors in this version give it a wintery boost — in addition to the Christmas-style red and green of the pomegranate and Brussels. There are a lot of flavors and textures to this dish, but certainly not too many that the eater gets lost.

Kale and roasted cauliflower salad with lemon-tahini dressing

As Sarah has advised in the past, if you want tender kale, give it a little massage. Or if you’ve had a stressful day, wad it up in your palm and squeeze it with all your might. The pressure beaks down kale’s tough cellulose structure. But be good to your food. Whisper “thank you” to your greens when you’re done.
