Salad greens for iceberg-melting summer days
May 22, 2015 6:00 AM -
Hot summer days call for light, simple meals that don't need cooking. You want a plate of sandwiches and a tossed salad, eaten under a tree. Experiment with something new like Malabar spinach, a handsome red-stemmed vine such as succulent leaves that thrive on heat -- or the equally gorgeous red-veined sorrel, which adds a lemony taste to salads. Try purple orach, too, with its tender foliage, rich in antioxidants.
