Summer Salad Recipe

Got a cookout, party, or picnic this weekend and not sure what to bring? Check out this recipe for a new spin on a classic salad. 

Drawing inspiration from food writer Martha Rose Shulman’s delicious Caesar dressing, our friends at Rancho Gordo developed this recipe for a chopped salad with a bean-based yogurt dressing.

We like how fresh and clean this tastes — it’s like a less-heavy take on a Caesar salad. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did!
