Savory Potato Salad The best recipes

Savory Potato Salad

YieldServes 6 (serving size: about 1 cup)Simpler and tastier than many old-fashioned potato salads, this version features a fresh lemon-and-oil-based dressing instead of a mayo-laden dressing. Try to toss the potatoes in the dressing while they’re still a bit warm—they’ll absorb more flavor that way.

Grilled Mahi-Mahi with Lemon-Parsley Potatoes

YieldServes 4 (serving size: 1 fillet and about 1/2 cup potatoes)Mahi-mahi is the rib-eye steak of the sea: dense and firm, it holds up beautifully on the grill (it’s also ideal for fish tacos). Look for fish caught off the U.S. Atlantic coast for the most sustainable option. If you can’t find it, tilapia or swordfish would also work.

Zucchini Butter The best recipes

Zucchini Butter

Zucchini certainly has a mild flavor (some might even call it bland), but when you cook it down slowly, until most of its liquid has evaporated, it tastes sweet and “green,” with a more pronounced vegetal undertone. Serve this silky spread as a dip with pita chips or crudités, spread onto pizza as the “sauce,” stir into scrambled eggs, use as a condiment for grilled meat, enjoy as a burger or hot dog topper, or use it to stuff chicken breasts.

Zucchini-Ribbon Pizza with Chicken The best recipes

Zucchini-Ribbon Pizza with Chicken

YieldServes 4 (serving size: 2 slices)If we could make a crisp, fresh salad a mandatory pizza topper, we would. Something about the crunchy veg against the cheesy pie and crisp crust just works, creating a perfectly balanced bite every time. Use a vegetable peeler to get wide ribbons from the zucchini.

Silky Tomato-Basil Soup with Fresh Corn The best recipes

Silky Tomato-Basil Soup with Fresh Corn

A warm bowl of soup is often unappreciated in the summer heat, but we tap into some of the season’s best produce, from juicy tomatoes to sweet corn, to create a luxurious, fresh tomato soup. Silken tofu stands in for traditional heavy cream, lending rich body and a hit of quality protein. A bracing bruschetta topping adds bright, garden-fresh flavor, keeping this summertime soup desirably light and refreshing.

Grilled Corn Salsa The best recipes

Grilled Corn Salsa

Don’t be afraid to get some good char all over the corn; that’s where a lot of the flavor comes from. We like the look of red jalapeños here, but you can also use green jalapeños (which taste the same) if they’re easier to find. Try the citrus-spiked salsa as a dip with tortilla chips or a topper for blackened fish, steak, or chicken; or tuck some into fish or shrimp tacos, combine it with black beans for a quesadilla filling, stuff a hefty spoonful into an omelet or frittata, or toss a generous amount with quinoa for a hearty main-dish salad.

Shrimp-Chile Skewers The best recipes

Shrimp-Chile Skewers

More than just being fun to say, these skewers are an improved twist on standard kebabs (button mushrooms, chunks of bell pepper, and wedges of onion). If your shiitake mushrooms are smaller, keep them whole and skewer from end to end rather than through the center. Bright green, ridged shishito peppers have a mild heat and are 10 times better when grilled; serve with dip at your next party and watch them instantly disappear.

Crunchy Sesame-Ginger Chicken Salad The best recipes

Crunchy Sesame-Ginger Chicken Salad

YieldServes 4 (serving size: about 2 cups)Instead of uncooked ramen noodles, this familiar salad gets its crunch from rice crackers (we like plain, sesame, and nori flavors). Add these last so they retain their texture. You could also use chopped unsalted roasted almonds or cashews. Think of frozen edamame as having the same purpose and versatility as frozen green peas, a quick-cooking staple that adds instant vibrancy to any dish.
