Make your own salad bar
For a family dinner one night this week, put together a salad bar and invite the whole crew to create their own salads. Include at least two vegetables that aren’t usually on the menu — jicama, radicchio or artichoke hearts, for instance, as well as some cooked chickpeas and lentils for protein. Warm up a loaf of whole-wheat bread. For dessert, serve up a selection of colourful sorbets topped with berries.
