One serious perk to all of the testing that happens for our recipe contests is tasting those tests. And I have to say, I felt like I won the jackpot after testing this grilled vegetable salad for the recent grilling contest. There were so many strong contenders that it didn't quite make it to the finals, but this one was too good to let it slip under your radar—I've been making it over and over again this summer, and I bet you'll want to, too.

6 Ways to Your Juiciest, Most Flavorful Chicken Breast

  6 Ways to Your Juiciest, Most Flavorful Chicken Breast A solid weeknight staple and friend of salads everywhere, boneless, skinless chicken breasts are a hero of the fridge—they're quick, flexible, and can take on any number of seasonings and styles. Put them on the grill, and you can level up even more on your layers of flavor. Paula Disbrowe, author of our newest book, Any Night Grilling, shows us how to char chicken breasts to juicy, delicious perfection—and serve them with sass. How to Get That Outdoor Grilled Flavor (Without Having to Go Outdoors) by Brinda Ayer Season well With a clean, mild flavor, a chicken breast begs to be seasoned. Start with Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper. Oil up Super-lean cuts need added fat for flavor and to prevent them from sticking to the grill. For the best results, coat the meat and the preheated cooking grate with oil before cooking. Marinate When time allows (such as the morning before cooking), marinate breasts in a resealable plastic bag with olive oil, salt and pepper, and chopped fresh herbs (thyme, rosemary, oregano, or marjoram are great options) or spice blends (harissa, garam masala, cumin and smoked paprika, or even curry paste moistened with vegetable oil). Chicken Caesar Salad with Anchovy-Caesar Vinaigrette and Garlic-Parmesan Croutons by chilmarkgal Keep it snappy The cooking process needs to be quick to avoid drying out the meat, so grill over high heat until the breasts are lightly charred and white throughout, 3 to 4 minutes per side.

Any vegetables you’re grilling , from slices of zucchini to wedges of radicchio, will sit wan and untouched next to those burgers and dogs if they’re under-oiled and under seasoned. Grilled Halloumi Croutons Are the Only Croutons We ' re Adding to Our Salads .

Grilled halloumi cheese, Parmesan croutons and a warming tomato and chilli dressing make this vibrant salad feel hearty and substantial. Find plenty more Halloumi cheese recipes and Vegetarian recipes at Tesco Real Food.

There's a mix of temperatures and textures between the crisp lettuce, grilled vegetables, and toasty halloumi cheese, and it all comes together with a flavorful dressing that does double-duty as a marinade.

The salad is perfect as is, but if you want to make it your own, I've got a few ideas: Mix it up by grilling whatever vegetables you have on hand. Try making a batch and a half of the dressing—I like to have a bit more for marinating, plus, it's important to get those halloumi slices totally coated so you don't risk them sticking to the grill (ask me how I know...). I also think it would be good with a grilled protein (or these grilled cauliflower steaks) on top to turn it into even more of a main dish. Or just make a double recipe of the halloumi croutons, because if you're anything like me, you'll want to start incorporating them into everything!

The Crispy, Cheesy (1-Ingredient!) Garnish to Elevate Everything

  The Crispy, Cheesy (1-Ingredient!) Garnish to Elevate Everything Some ingredients just feel noteworthy—truffles, caviar, small-batch anything—when you bust them out, it's automatically a special occasion. Parmesan can be that way too, specifically when it's shredded, baked, and turned into a toasty cheese crisp, à la frico. And, c'mon, frico just sounds fancy. So when Ethnea H. Ferguson read that Joshua McFadden, author of our Cookbook Club's bonus book, Six Seasons, recommends pairing frico with champagne, she knew it was the perfect combo for her (semi)retirement celebration. We're in favor of celebrating everything (and doing so with cheese!), but you don't need to reserve frico just for fancy occasions. Frico by Samantha Weiss Hills Parmesan Frico by Ashley Rodriguez Smaller rounds of frico are perfect for nibbling on as is, but they also function as cheesy crackers or crumbled into crispy croutons for sprinkling on salads. Make the Parmesan cheese piles larger, say 6-inches across, and drape them over inverted bowls after they come out of the oven. Once cooled, you'll have edible cheesy bowls, perfect for filling with salad or pasta. Ruth Reichl’s Grilled Cheese is Genius, and Completely Ou by Kristen Miglore Cheese-Crusted Eggs by MelissaHM Another idea: add a layer of crispy Parmesan to the outside of dishes like grilled cheese sandwiches or fried eggs. You'll get a cheesy crust that makes already delicious foods even better.

The Real Reason Most Americans Don't Eat 3 Meals a Day .
Most nights when my roommate comes home, usually around 8 p.m., she doesn’t cook. Instead, she flips on Project Runway and nibbles on what she calls “adult Lunchables”: cheese, crackers, fresh cherry tomatoes, hummus. Sometimes after really long days, it’s actual Lunchables (which, let's be real, are delicious). Maybe it helps that she's a fitness inspiration who just completed an Olympic triathlon last weekend. I only bring this up because it turns out that her tendency to eat "snack meals" is actually the norm for others, as well. According to a recent survey of 2,000 subjects by OnePoll and FarmRich (admittedly, a frozen snack company), nearly 86 percent of Americans don’t eat three square meals a day. Instead, 49 percent of respondents said they skip lunch in favor of three smaller snacks throughout the day. Reusable Silicone Storage Bags Russel Wright American Modern Dinnerware & Serveware Many of the foods that subjects reported snacking on mirror my roommate's habits: cheese, crackers, chips, nuts, deli meat slices, fresh fruit and vegetables. Respondents also shared a preference for frozen snacks, like nuggets and sliders, which can be prepared in the microwave. Which makes sense, because 49 percent of respondents said they turn to "snack dinners" due to the lack of time they have to plan, prepare, and sit down to a meal. There’s a lot of debate over how many times we should actually be eating in a day.
