This hearty, no-cook dinner salad is similar to the big antipasto platters at Italian restaurants — except it’s all tossed together in one bowl. Loaded with zucchini, tomato, salami and Parmesan cheese, it’s also a great side dish with grilled chicken or fish.

Time Saver

Balsamic vinegar instantly brightens up cooked broccoli and green beans. It’s also delicious drizzled over vanilla ice cream and strawberries.
