In the summer, one of my favourite dinners is a loaded salad and a crisp glass of white wine. An entree salad is a great way to add more vegetables to your diet without compromising your commitment to summer grilling.
These loaded salad recipes are inspired by the flavors of West Africa, Japan, Greece and more.
