Gail says: “It’s an everything salad, and it’s interchangeable—you don’t have to be fussy about it. There’s no lettuce, so it keeps really well; it doesn’t get soggy, so you can take it on a picnic. And you can add other vegetables, or swap some—it would be great with asparagus, or fennel. You could even add watermelon. It’s a real crowd pleaser. Put some grilled hangar steak on top, and that’s dinner. I think of it like the one-pot stew you’d make in the winter.”

Kitchen Wisdom: Grilling Limes
Grilling limes before juicing gives the dressing for this salad a delicious charred flavor, but that’s not all. Warming the fruit also relaxes the flesh, which helps you squeeze every last drop of its tasty juices.
