Roasted flowering broccoli with hazelnuts and lemon-shallot dressing

I can’t resist new discoveries at the farmers market! Flowering broccolini was a first for me — the stems were thinner than broccoli, and the stalks were accompanied by great leafy greens, which I saved for later. The flowers made for a beautiful garnish!

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.

Chopped green beans and cherry tomatoes with ginger-shallot dressing

It’s the end of tomato season in New England. I type this while picturing the tomato plants still standing in my garden: The stalks are brown and puckered; the few remaining fruits are speckled and dry looking; they need to be ripped out of their beds. So I nearly pounced on a $2 bag of tiny, multi-colored cherry tomatoes this weekend at the farmers market. They may be the last of the year! Sliced in half with a pile of chopped fresh green beans, and drizzled with gingery shallot vinaigrette — this is how I’m saying so long to my favorite summer snack.

Chickpea, quinoa and feta salad with dill

The original recipe called for barley, not quinoa, but I was aiming to use what I already had in the pantry. You could also probably use rice or another available grain.

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.

All of the measurements in this recipe are approximations. And dressing substitutions can easily be made, especially if you don't have access to one of those ridiculous (but awesome) specialty oil and vinegar stores. Swap in white wine vinegar for the peach balsamic, or scrap the homemade dressing completely and go for a store-bought champagne vinaigrette or raspberry vinaigrette. Please preserve the trifecta of pomegranate, pecans and toasted coconut, though. That's where it's at.

Grapefruit, avocado and chicken over greens

I made this salad right after my yoga class this past Sunday — so basically I felt like the world’s healthiest human ever. The fatty avocado and protein-rich chicken help pull the bitter greens and sour grapefruit back a few notches, right into the Perfection Zone.

Crispy kale salad with sweet potatoes, apples and cider vinaigrette

This was a very hearty salad and easily filled me up. I love a little crusty bread with my salads, for grabbing any extras at the bottom of the bowl or plate, so these grilled cheese croutons acted as my built-in sponges this time around. It was pretty, pretty great.
