Sometimes, using a little help from the store can mean the difference between ordering takeout and making a home-cooked meal.

Caprese Salad
This classic Italian salad is a must-have when tomatoes are at their best. Just a touch of olive oil and balsamic vinegar along with sweet, peppery basil highlights their natural flavor. And make sure to use the best mozzarella you can find. With ripe, juicy tomatoes, fresh mozzarella, and basil, this salad rocks!

An Everlasting Meal
Parsley makes a very good salad. I have seen the humble leaves do a salad's duties on several occasions. At the wonderful little restaurant Prune, it is served next to two gloriously rich marrowbones and buttered toast. No lettuce on earth is better-suited foil to that fatty combination.  Click here to see How to Season a Salad.

Octopus Salad
I want to share with you a very easy dish. In fact, it is almost a "non-recipe," as all you have to do is cut the ingredients and mix them together. Well, you may have to boil the octopus and potatoes, too, if you cannot find them ready. But that’s about it. I used to eat a lot of this during my summer holidays in Sicily, so it brings back lots of beautiful memories. It makes a great light main dish or a classy starter. Enjoy! See all salad recipes.

Avocado Salad
This recipe is a crowd pleaser, especially if the crowd loves avocados. The creamy dressing paired with the bite of arugula, the buttery taste of avocado, and the tang of Parmesan creates a unique and exciting contrast of flavors. It can stand to lose the chicken and can also be spruced up with some frisee or a sprinkle of almonds. If you love avocado, this is a quick and satisfying dish.

Waldorf Salad
Here is a reimagined version of the Waldorf salad as originally conceived here at the Waldorf Astoria New York. This is a bit lighter and healthier to fit the palate of a modern-day diner — a new spin for a new century.

Eggless Salad
My long search for the perfect vegan "egg" salad is over! This tofu eggless salad tastes just like the original, only it's fat-free and a whole lot healthier. Black salt is the secret ingredient here. This has quickly became a favorite in our household. See all sandwich recipes.

Never so beautifully has a Caesar salad been illustrated before than with Alain Passard's collage. Eggs, tomatoes, and anchovies clearly show what a delicious and natural Caesar salad recipe this is.

Salad
The modern Salade Niçoise can be many things. I like mine with grilled fresh tuna, green beans and steamed potatoes, multicolored heirloom cherry tomatoes, a few nicely dressed greens, and a soft touch of anchovy.  This composed salad is perfect to serve when entertaining guests at lunch. Serve family-style along with a loaf of fresh crusty bread and sweet butter.
