A salad is a great lunch that can change easily from season to season.

The Daily Meal's editors, contributors, and readers dig into some pretty great restaurants, festivals, and meals. There's not always enough time to give a full review of a restaurant or describe in depth why a place, its food, and the people who prepare it are noteworthy, so Snackshot of the Day does what photographs do best, rely on the image to do most of the talking.

Today's Snackshot is of a late-summer salad. It's made of brown rice, green beans, tomatoes, carrots, red pepper, pears, and spinach. The dressing is a mixture of vinegar, jalapeño, garlic, cilantro, and peanut butter. The best way to make a salad is to work with the seasons. Go to your local farmers' market and pick up all the vegetables you can carry, chop them up, and mix them together.
