If you like the classic dinner salad, try:

Sunflower Sprouts Salad
Our version of the standard green salad is an airy stack of tender butter lettuce leaves with raw and cooked vegetables.

If you like chicken Caesar salad, try:

Grilled Chicken on Greens with Creamy Harissa Dressing
We've breathed new life into sliced chicken on greens with harissa, a fiery Tunisian chile sauce (or paste) laced with coriander, garlic, cumin, and caraway.

If you like seafood salad, try:

Vietnamese Calamari Herb Salad
Fried calamari goes to Vietnam, where seafood (and meats) are often paired with lots and lots of fresh herbs. Here, the intense, fresh flavor of mint, basil, dill, parsley, and cilantro make a clean-tasting counterpoint to the rich, lightly crunchy calamari.

If you like parsley-and-tomato tabbouleh, try:

Minty Tabbouleh with Preserved Lemon
Tabbouleh gets a zingy makeover, thanks to aromatic mint and salty, tangy preserved lemon. Our version complements grilled meats of all sorts.

Dressings you'll keep using:

Sesame Miso Vinaigrette
It's delicious on everything from simple mixed greens to seafood to chicken to noodle salads, and can be used as a marinade too.

Buttermilk Herb Ranch Dressing
Quick and simple, this creamy, tangy dressing holds its own against the commercial kind.
