Salads

Salad of Jicama and Papaya

This salad is summer food at its finest. Crisp, juicy, refreshing and textured, jicama and papaya make an unlikely yet delightful duo, especially when paired with this light orange juice dressing atop a bed of crunchy Bibb lettuce.

Mango Papaya Salad

Part fruit salad and part green salad, this refreshing hybrid is the best of both worlds! Crisp romaine topped with a summery trio of tropical fruits (mango, papaya and avocado) that will satisfy and delight the whole family. Top with this easy and delicious balsamic and blended fruit dressing, which adds freshness and flavor though very little fat or calories. Candied almonds add crunch. An unusual treat that may become a summer staple after spending long days in the sun.

Arugula Pesto

Arugula pesto is a fun and slightly spicy alternative to basil pesto. Another great way to enjoy this delightful green.

Make-Ahead Artichoke Salad

This delicious side dish is perfect for a buffet, potluck or anytime. Be sure to allow enough time for the salad to marinate.

Avocado Mint Salad

This distinctive salad is just the thing to get you out of a dinner rut. Tender bibb lettuce, torn and topped with avocado, ribbons of mint, and a fresh grapefruit juice dressing pleasantly startle and awaken taste buds. Especially delightful in the months of November through February, when Texas Rio Star grapefruit are in season.

Brussels Sprouts Potato Salad

This hearty side is a great dish for potlucks and entertaining. The addition of Brussels sprouts transforms potato salad, a summer favorite, into something definitively autumnal.

Coleslaw

A traditional favorite for casual meals.

Tuscan Tuna and Bean Salad

This makes a satisfying light meal in hot weather, or a change of pace side dish in the colder months.

Chicken Salad

Delicious served on a bed of salad greens or in a sandwich.
