How to make Watermelon Lime Granita

  1. Creamy Broccoli and Blue Cheese Salad satisfies

    Health

    Tis the season of backyard barbecues, picnics and outdoor potlucks. We gather with friends, or simply migrate to the backyard picnic table for family dinner, and that has me craving the classics: grilled meats, veggies and some creamy starchy sides like macaroni salad.

    Get your fill of vitamins, particularly C, A and K, and deliciousness with Garlic Green Beans.
  3. For slaws with staying power and no leftovers, go cabbage-free

    Cooking

  8. Roast carrots to bring out their sweetness in this salad

    Cooking

    A few years ago, carrots were like celery and onions, part of many a dish but rarely the star. Maybe you would see them as a side dish, buttered and glazed, or pureed into a soup.

    A bracing dressing spiked with sweet-tart pomegranate molasses pairs nicely with the gentle crunch from the arugula and fennel and the rich softness from the carrots.
