If you are lucky, you may have a surplus of fresh produce, such as tomatoes, green beans, peppers, zucchini, cucumbers, and basil in late summer. But after a couple of weeks, plain vegetables can get a little boring, even if they're fresh from the garden. What to do? Make salad! Hearty salads of chunky mixed vegetables with a protein like cheese or chicken tossed in are super easy and healthy. Serve them as a side dish or as a main dish. Make extra, so you have leftovers. Unlike lettuce salads, these work well the next day.
