I don't know about you, but I get lazy when the weather gets hot. What to do? Make a salad or two ahead of time and have it waiting for you after a hard day at work. I put together two salads (the weekend is a good time), then cut up fresh carrots and red bell peppers and bought a small container of fresh baby mozzarella balls. I store the cut veggies in fresh water in the fridge. Dinner is on...or lunch!

Lemon Cumin Potato Salad doesn't show the fresh cilantro leaves because I didn't have any! I added a bit more cumin and crushed red chili pepper than what the recipe called for.
Warm Cannellini Bean and Herb Salad tastes great cold too. I did not add the shrimp or olives listed in the recipe. Yew!
