Simple Summer Salads

Mark Bittman’s at it again, this time offering up a list of 101 salads for the summer. At least one of these recipes will fulfill the dual requirements of what’s in the fridge/pantry and summertime dinner laziness.

In theory, each salad takes 20 minutes or less. Honestly, some may take you a little longer. But most minimize work at the stove and capitalize on the season, when tomatoes, eggplant, herbs, fruit, greens and more are plentiful and excellent. This last point is important. Not everything needs to be farmers’ market quality, but it’s not too much to expect ripe fruit, fragrant herbs and juicy greens.

I’m looking at you, #57, you’ll be on the plates before the weekend’s over.
