I started making salads decades ago during the summer we dropped a pool in the backyard. Our house became the summer weekend getaway for family and friends.

What's a pool-side picnic without salad? What's a salad without a bouquet of colors? A hearty salad can be the base for a healthful lunch or dinner when paired with a protein. Our favorite dinner paring is with cod, salmon or flank steak. For lunch, we top with white anchovies, sardines or tuna. Sometimes, a combination of those.

Some of my friends have a signature salad. Mine is ever evolving. All ingredients are organic, bought at Natural Grocers our favorite place to shop.
