An unusual twist on a typical tomato-cucumber salad — with grapes for a sweet pop!
This millet, lentil, and tomato salad recipe is a great dish to eat for lunch, but it's also well received at parties and BBQs. During Winter months, I substitute dried cranberries or pomegranate seeds for the tomato. Like quinoa, millet is a pseudo grain, and it has a fluffy texture and a buttery, roasted flavor. It's high in B vitamins, calcium, iron, potassium, and magnesium.

Sure, you can pick it up at every grocery store and deli in America, but why not whip up a large batch of it at home? This recipe is straightforward: you boil some potatoes and toss them with a bunch of chopped veggies and a mayo-mustard sauce.
Although capers aren't a traditional ingredient, their salty, briny quality is welcomed in this salad. Prepare it a day in advance, so the potato salad has plenty of time to chill. For my favorite recipe, keep reading.
Now that Summer is officially in full swing, it's time we turned our attention to salad. Although I eat salad all year long, I have twice as many during the warmer months. They require no cooking and are a great way to use the season's best produce. To inspire you, I've rounded up our most scrumptious salad recipes.
This salad is amazing! The grill chars some of the leaves until crisp while others are in different stages of wilt. Let the romaine cool a little before tossing it with the other ingredients. I used grilled eggplant and zucchini, but any veggies would be delicious.
You could also toss the greens with grilled fruit, salty cheese, cooked protein, crunchy croutons — really the possibilities are endless. For extra-smoky flavor, grill the lemon before making the vinaigrette. Read on, for the recipe.
