Weeknight Meal Planner: 5/22/17
This elegant plate is would make for a lovely meat-free date night. And if you’re serving the whole family, this recipe is easily doubled—you’ll just need a larger skillet for sautéing your mushrooms and asparagus. Serve with toast or a side of roasted potatoes for delicious uptake on breakfast-for-dinner.
This vibrant and colorful main dish salad is bursting with color a flavor thanks to a champagne vinaigrette loaded with fresh herbs and a fantastic combo of fresh produce (hello, peaches and watermelon radishes). Served with slices of crusty bread, this bold, beautiful salad makes for a wonderful light supper. If you want to skip the shrimp this week, feel free to substitute in rotisserie or grilled chicken; or to keep it completely vegetarian, go for soft boiled eggs.
Five ingredients and flavor packed—can’t beat that. Not to mention, a build-it-yourself, hand-held meal is always a fun play to get kids stoked for dinner. To add another bright touch to these sweet and spicy wraps, serve with fresh lime wedges and fresh cilantro.
Sounds fancy (as most French words tend to), but "Paillard" is simply a French term for any cut of meat that's been sliced or pounded thin—it’s a brilliant shortcutting technique for plump chicken breasts.
Make Friday dinner feel a little extra fun with this tasty twist on pizza night. If you’re craving extra protein, any leftover pork from last night’s dinner would be a welcome addition shredded up over this banh mi-inspired pie. Or if you’d prefer to keep it vegetarian, simply crack a couple eggs over the cheese before baking.
Kick back with a refreshing, seasonal cocktail this weekend, you deserve it. If fresh strawberries aren’t quite at their peak in your market, go ahead and substitute thawed frozen berries. Rickeys are often served alcohol free, and are every bit as refreshing, so feel free to omit the gin, if you like.
