When you’re planning a summer menu, don’t forget the salad. Instead of putting something together at the last minute or preparing an old standby, plan ahead and serve an eye-catching salad with fresh appeal for the main course. What is a salad? Certainly not just the traditional lettuce tossed in a vinaigrette. Salads are a composition ~ some artfully arranged, some tossed casually together ~ all inspired by fresh seasonal vegetables, hearty meats and juicy fruits and grains we find in the markets every day.
