This chunky chicken salad makes a great side-dish, or you can put a scoop on top of salad greens and call it an entree.
With the brilliant pinks of the watermelon, the reds and whites of the radishes, and the bright greens of the kale and jalapeno, this salad is as colorful for the eyes as it is surprising for the tongue.  Combining the hot and sweet flavors of summer make this an infinitely refreshing side dish that's particularly good with the richer summer flavors of grilled meats.
This is one of those salads that's so ridiculously easy to throw together that it works equally well for lunch on the run and a crowd-pleasing side dish.  Just don't forget to multiply the directions - it was devised as a working-from-home-lunch-in-a-flash so the quantities are just for 1 person.
Looking for a way to make a salmon salad 'fit in' to a harvest table, we found ourselves swapping out summer fruits for sweetly rich roasted butternut squash.  This salad takes a little time in the oven but very little hands-on prep is required and it can be served either warm or cold, making it a versatile option as an elegant and light dinner entree or a crowd-pleasing party side.  And with its simple dressing it's gluten-, dairy-, soy- and nut-free!
A striking and elegant presentation of a delicious light salad - especially when you happen to have over-sized cucumbers growing in your vegetable garden!
This is one of our favorite week-night side dishes.  Pulls together literally in minutes and complements a wide range of dishes.  Of course, you can also just eat it out of a bowl with a spoon!
