This textured, complex salad is lightly dressed with our sweet and pungent Russian dressing, but feel free to add a little more if you like. Fennel gives it a gentle licorice note, while the Parmesan adds a satisfying umami touch. Don’t skip the Crispy Quinoa Topper, it adds a crunch that you won’t want to miss.
Smoked paprika is a time-strapped cook’s best friend – it instantly lends a smoky flavor and rich aroma to everything it touches. Here, it makes this saucy dish taste like it’s been simmering for hours. Bone-in chicken thighs are often sold with the skin still attached, but it’s easy to remove yourself: Simply grasp the edge of the skin with paper towel and pull it away in one go. Sprinkle with fresh herbs, such as oregano or basil, just before serving.
Sweet summer corn and tomatoes are elevated with a fragrant tarragon dressing and flavor-packed halloumi cheese. The firm Mediterranean cheese holds up well to heat, making it ideal for grilling. Look for halloumi in the deli section of your supermarket – it’s often sold alongside feta and bocconcini.
