Expert Tips

  • The best part about a summer salad is you have a whole season of fresh vegetables to choose from. Save on your grocery bill by buying whatever is in season that week and mix up the veggies accordingly.
  • Day-old bread will create perfectly crusty croutons with little cracks and crevices that will hold the dressing. Bake up an extra loaf or two for dinner one night and use it for croutons later in the week.
