When packing up a meal for a picnic, tailgate, or even a potluck at a friend's house, nothing beats hearty grain-based salads that can be made in advance — and this quinoa salad is a new favorite. Inspired by a dish a family friend made where she covered the quinoa with a layer of kale and salted pumpkin seeds, I decided to stir the greens into the quinoa so each bite was full of flavors. Mango adds a sweet and tropical bite, and I garnished the dish with roasted almonds for a buttery, salty finish. Click here to see New Twists on Tailgating Recipes.

I'm not one for salads. They're just not indulgent enough for me. In fact, if I have to make one, I sneak a little cream into the dressing just to make a point. But when I wanted to make something quick, I knew that a salad was one of the easiest options. To force myself into salivating for one, I thought hard about what my favorite ingredients are to have in a salad and came up with chicken, corn, heirloom tomatoes, and spinach. With some quinoa and a few additional touches, I am now just a little bit more in favor of salads. I think you will be, too.  Click here to see Fast and Furious Dinner Recipes — 20 Minutes or Less.

Healthy Chicken Salad
Crunchy and slightly bitter, this easy salad is a healthy and tasty dish to make for dinner or the night before for lunch the next day. In fact, as the acid in the dressing softens the radicchio, the flavors meld together overnight and make the salad even better than it was the before. Plus, you don't have to worry about how to dress the salad because the work has already been done! I cooked the chicken for this salad, but you can always use leftovers from dinner the night before. Similarly, while I used leftover roasted asparagus, nearly any other cooked vegetable can be used instead.  Click here to see 9 Tasty Lunch Ideas for Work.
