One-bowl meals

Girl eating noodles - one-bowl mealsDuring the hot summer
months, it’s often
preferable to get dinner
on the table without
turning on the oven.
While salad is most often
treated as secondary
to a meal’s main event,
if you think outside
your box of spring mix,
a big salad has huge
dinnertime potential. Try

of noodles, grains, beans
or pasta; or add protein –
think combos like bacon
and eggs with spinach –
to fresh seasonal greens.

and test some sweet,
salty, crunchy and nutty
main dishes that are far
more than “just a salad”.
