We have always loved broccoli salad, but you don’t seem to find it in too many places. And, when you do, it usually has raisins, and sometimes mayonnaise or yogurt. We really love this recipe, because it uses a simple vinaigrette of olive oil and a combination of rice and cider vinegar. The cider vinegar gives it just a hint of sweetness, but it’s not too sweet. The turkey bacon adds a salty touch and a bit of protein, while the broccoli has such a good crunch and the sharp cheddar cheese and toasted pecans add the final touches!d! This salad travels well in lunch boxes, too.

This grilled chicken paillard is light and refreshing, but incredibly dynamic. Warm grilled chicken is topped with a salad of crunchy shaved fennel, peppery arugula and tender baby potatoes. Sliced almonds give the salad crunch, golden raisins provide sweetness, and a flurry of feta adds just the right amount of saltiness. I love the subtle anise flavor of tarragon in this dish, but you can swap it out for other herbs (either a single herb or a mix), such as dill, basil, parsley and/or mint. Be sure to check out the other ingredient swaps below. To get a jumpstart on the recipe, pound out the chicken breasts the day before (refrigerate them until you’re ready to use).
