Grilled bread salad with sweet peppers and onions

A grilled bread salad might sound sort of dry, but this dish had the perfect amount of dressing. It was so easy to make, too! The hardest part was remembering what I had to pick up from the grocery store.

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 ...

Shaved candy cane beets and tomatoes with spicy oregano

I’ve always wanted to make something with candy cane beets because they’re so gorgeous. I knew that roasting and other heavy heat methods of cooking can mute the striped pattern, so I thought that if I sliced the beets thinly enough, they wouldn’t need to be cooked as much. The super-fine raw beets weren’t bad, but in the end I decided to steam them, which helped. Placing them in a single layer encouraged them to soften quickly and preserved the pretty red-and-white pattern.

Greens with pasta, artichokes, salame and beans

I grabbed a beautiful bag of greens (grown in the city!) at a farmer’s market recently and wanted to highlight it beyond just throwing them in a bowl. The salame can be optional here, I honestly just had a craving! It could certainly be made meatless and have the same impact.

Chopped bok choy salad with cucumbers and peanuts

The farmers market has been stocked with bok choy lately, and it’s quickly become one of our favorite salad ingredients. We love how juicy and crunchy the stems are! That, combined with the fact that we somehow have three types of peanuts in our pantry, was inspiration enough for this tangy Asian salad.

All of my favorite things in one dish! If raw zucchini isn't your thing, I suggest a quick, hot saute with a small splash of olive oil. Either way — delish!

Mediterranean chickpea salad

This is based off a side salad Bill and I often order at one of our favorite burger joints, The Bad Apple. I mostly guessed blindly, but it turned out quite well.

Shaved white radish and bok choy with golden oyster mushrooms and sesame drizzle

This salad was a total whim, made from gorgeous, fresh ingredients found on my first trip the farmers market in my new neighborhood. The bok choy and turnips were surprisingly juicy, and the golden oyster mushrooms were delicately earthy. If you can’t find similar mushrooms, shiitakes will do.

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!

Shaved radish salad with mint and ricotta

This crisp little number is a great side dish for a more savory main. I’m used to the more traditional salted butter with radishes, so it was a very cool change to try it with the slightly sweeter ricotta.
