Creamy Vegan Salad Dressing
Try this creamy vegan salad dressing from chef Amanda Cohen with romaine, which stands up to this full-bodied, Caesar-adjacent treatment.
Tortilla Avocado Salad
This spicy salad packs a one-two punch of flavor and nutrition, making it a terrific lunch by itself or a happy participant in a larger meal. It’s also a great way to use up leftover tortilla chips.
Endive with Cucumbers, Onions & Crouton Crumbs
This version of a wedge salad uses strong flavors to play off the gentle bitterness of the chicory. By leaving the endive cores intact, you can spread dressing between the leaves without breaking them apart.
Sesame Lime One-Bowl Salad Dressing
This is a great salad dressing method when you want something fast and easy (and don’t want to dirty another dish).
