Cheese - Mediterranean Quinoa Salad

Chicken breast cubes, feta cheese, and kalamata olives combine with quinoa in this salad that is equally good warm or cold.

Side Dish - Sugar Glazed Walnuts

These walnuts are wonderful when put on a green salad. That is if you don't let your family taste them...they might not make it to the salad. Wonderful!

Herbs And Spices - Mid Summer Italian Bread Salad

A crusty rosemary bread works nicely for this classic Italian salad. The bread - pulled into bite-sized pieces - tomatoes, cucumbers and red onions, are tossed with fresh herbs and just enough vinegar and oil to give them a nice glistening. Four generous servings.
