Ring in Spring with Salad Days

Giveaway Update: You're both getting a copy. Thanks for participating, FreshChef and mbhunt! 

We’ve got an exciting week planned to ring in spring: We’re starting off by launching Salad Days—a week of daily dinner salads staring spring greens like arugula and spinach and vegetables like peas, asparagus, carrots, artichokes, radishes, and more. Starting Sunday, March 18 and lasting all week long, our Make It Tonight eLetter will feature a gorgeous main course salad incorporating the best of spring's offerings, so be sure to opt in if you haven't already.

Facebook Chat and Salad for Dinner Giveaway

Then on Thursday, March 22, Tasha DeSerio, author of the new cookbook Salad for Dinner, will be the special guest on Fine Cooking's Facebook page from 3:00-5:00 EST. Tasha will be there to dish with fans about the trick to making simple, yet sophisticated dinner salads that satisfy and delight. Everyone can download an excerpt of Tasha’s book, and five lucky fans will get a free copy of the book as part of our Facebook Salad Days Giveaway, so mark your calendars for the Facebook chat and join the conversation for your chance to win.

FreshChef writes: oops. My tip is "if you plate it they will eat it." When the salad course is all that is offered, it becomes the main!

mbhunt writes: My ingredients usually include: lettuces and/or spinach, a protein, a fruit, a vegetable, some nuts and/or croutons, and dressing. I like a local Nebraska favorite called "Dorothy Lynch" or the new Marzetti Simple dressings. I'd love to learn more about salad dinners! Posted: 2:20 am on March 22nd
