Lemony Bulgur Salad with Shrimp and Spinach
Bulgur (a quick-cooking form of whole wheat) is usually boiled before it's eaten, but for this terrific main-course salad, Melissa Rubel simply softens it in warm tap water before tossing it with baby spinach and precooked shrimp.
This recipe is great for those who like garlic but don’t want too much of it. Simply infuse oil with garlic and use a bit on toasted bread (the chapon), which is tossed with the salad and then eaten at the end of the meal.
Seaweed asserts its umami magic in this beautiful noodle-edamame salad recipe, which is perfect for a spring evening. Several types of dried seaweed are available in natural-foods markets—arame and dulse (sometimes called “sea vegetables”) are two of the most common. Snipped pieces of nori (the seaweed used for sushi rolls) would work too.
Spring is in the air and with the warm weather comes a craving for refreshing foods. Salads reign supreme in the springtime as they can satisfy and refresh all at once. From savory combinations to tangy and sweet, we adore these salads and can't wait to make them all this season.
