Food52 Mighty Salads: 60 New Ways to Turn Salad into Dinner
"Mighty Salads is 60 recipes from our community, from the leafy to the vegetable-laden, the bean-y to the mostly meaty. You’ll find the salads that will become your packable lunch, a go-to to impress dinner guests, or the best way to clean out your fridge.
A few of our favorites:
- Grilled Steak and Tossed Salsa Verde Salad (with a way easier version of pesto)
- Fried Eggplant, Tomato & Peach Salad with Preserved Lemon Vinaigrette (summertime heaven),
- Brown Butter–Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Crispy Quinoa (because brown butter)
- Baby Artichoke, Fregola & Pistachio Aillade Salad (pasta salad breaks out of the picnic)
Scoffing at the idea that you need a recipe for a salad? We hear you. But Mighty Salads is full of tips and tricks to take your salad game to a whole new level. Each recipe has a formula for “off-roading”, for those of us who like to color outside the lines. And you’ll pocket capital-G Genius ideas like a trick to tame a lotta pucker and instructions for sprouting your own grains. And recipe-follower or no, you’ll walk away with a few new components to incorporate into your own favorites: smoked lentils, cornbread croutons, and (huh?!) pickled chorizo. There's no right or wrong with salads. And we think that's mighty (heh) fine."
