Luscious Avocado Strawberry Salad

Worth any occasion, yet incredibly simple. Try papaya or mango in season in place of strawberries. Add pomegranate seeds for a punch of flavor.

Bountiful Harvest Vegetable Salad

This is a wonderful way to use fresh produce from first harvest to last. The contrast of the warm dressing, tender cooked veggies, and crunchy radish and walnuts over the salad greens is a treat for your taste buds.

Vegetable Frittata

This is a great dish to serve to company. It serves 8 as a main dish, or more if you cut it into small cubes and use it as an appetizer.

Moroccan Lamb Stew with Apricots

Lamb is often used in delicious Moroccan dishes such as this one. Lamb can be expensive, so feel free to substitute a pound of cubed chicken breast with 1 Tbsp of olive oil if you like. Serve with whole-wheat couscous or triangles of whole-wheat pita bread.

Baked Chicken with Maple Butter Glaze

This scrumptious chicken cooks so quickly because of the high heat and the chicken’s proximity to the oven’s heating element. It’s adapted from a Weight Watchers recipe.

Super Foods Salad

The salad tastes not only super nourishing, but is also bursting with flavor. Boost the flavor even more by adding 4 tsp dried cranberries, 1/4 cup pomegranate seeds or a diced orange. Or choose baby arugula for the greens.

North African Shakshuka (Love Shack-shuka)

Shakshuka is a popular breakfast in North Africa and the Middle East. If you don’t have time for a breakfast that takes 30 minutes, try this flavorful and savory dish for dinner. No zucchini? Use bell peppers or eggplant. This recipe is adapted from Melissa Clark's version in The New York Times.

Pear, Ricotta and Pine Nut Cake

The combination of golden raisins, pine nuts and orange zest gives this cake a uniquely Sicilian flair. Keep in mind that those same flavors make a great addition to savory whole-grain rice pilafs as well.

Fresh Tomato Sauce

Try making large batches of this sauce in summer and freezing or canning the excess so that you’ll have fresh, homemade sauce on hand all year long. If good-quality fresh tomatoes are not available, substitute approximately 24 oz good-quality jarred or boxed strained Italian tomatoes.

Spinach Sautéed in Garlic and Oil

This “recipe” is so simple, but it’s an easy, healthful and tasty way to cook fresh spinach. Vegetables of any kind—cauliflower, broccoli, peppers, potatoes and/or green beans—can be blanched until just tender, and prepared the same way.
