Three Great Dinner Salads

When summer temperatures rise, you want to eat refreshing, filling meals that keep you cool. Enter the delicious, nutritious, satisfying meal-sized dinner salad.
With some pre-planning, a beautiful, healthy dinner salad can be yours. Any combination of fresh, in-season produce can be paired with lean proteins and healthy whole-grains to make a salad a meal ? and it all starts with your trip to the grocery store. Choose a variety of bright, colorful vegetables and quick-cooking proteins that can be prepared on the grill or are ready to serve. Lastly, choose a variety of whole grains that cook quickly. Then mix it all together and you have a dinner option that will happily become the superstar of your summer dinner table.
Here are a few of our favorite, flavorful ideas:

For the peanut sauce:

1 cup unsalted peanut butter, creamy or crunchy as you prefer
1?2 cloves of fresh garlic
3 tablespoons fresh ginger, grated
Zest and juice of 1 large lime
1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper
2 tablespoons honey or maple syrup
3 tablespoons Bragg’s Liquid Aminos or tamari sauce
2 teaspoons  rice vinegar
2 teaspoons toasted sesame oil
2?4 tablespoons full-fat coconut milk (more for a thinner consistency)
1/4 cup cilantro, chopped (optional)
Water, to thin as needed

For the salad:

4 cups fresh, spicy greens
2 cups jasmine rice, cooked
1/2 red pepper, sliced
2 carrots, grated
1/2 cucumber, thinly sliced
1/4 red onion, thinly sliced
1/2 cup mixed cilantro, mint and basil, chopped
2 tablespoons roasted and salted peanuts
Lime wedges, to taste
1-pound peeled, deveined shrimp or boneless, skinless chicken breast, grilled to preference

For the peanut sauce: In the bowl of a food processor or powerful blender, combine all ingredients except the cilantro. Process until smooth. Taste and adjust the flavor to your preference. Add the cilantro, give it another few pulses and transfer to an airtight jar. Keep in the fridge for up to one week. Note: Recipe makes 8 ounces of dressing, or roughly 16 1-tablespoon servings.
For the salad: Divide the rice, greens and vegetables between 4 individual serving-sized bowls. Top with grilled chicken or shrimp and drizzle with 1?2 tablespoons of peanut sauce. Divide the peanuts and herbs among the bowls and serve. Recipe makes 4 servings at 1 1/2 cups each.

2 pounds tomatoes (a mix of small heirlooms and cherry tomatoes), halved
