This salad has a nice bit of heat to it thanks to the fresh chile. Fiery, sweat-inducing capsaicin is found mostly in the white pith (and the seeds that come into contact with the pith), so devein and seed the chile if you want to cut back on spiciness. For added flavor, you can add chopped fresh mint, cilantro or Thai basil to the salad.
Pan-seared tofu pairs beautifully with fresh veggies and teriyaki-style noodles in this quick takeout fake-out. You can substitute whole-grain linguine or brown rice noodles.
Crisp salad is topped with a spiced coconut-crusted chicken breast in this salad that’s a cinch to put together. The mango dressing is truly heavenly, with a commingling of sweet, tart and spicy notes.
Dandelion greens pack a tasty, bitter punch that is best paired with other bold ingredients that can stand up to its flavor, such as the sharp Parmesan and flavorful sausage in this quick pasta. The leaves mellow as they cook, so hold back some fresh ones to toss in at the end of cooking for an extra kick. Serve with lemon wedges and red pepper flakes.
