Potato Meets Egg Salad

One day I had the idea to substitute cooked potato for the tofu in my original egg salad recipe. I loved the result! You can still use tofu if you prefer, or half of both (see tips).

Layered Summer Salad

Easy Buddha Bowl

Start by placing a bed of fresh colorful salad greens, like red romaine, baby spinach, baby kale, or radicchio, at the bottom of the bowl. Over that, add as many raw and/or steamed vegetables as you like. A variety of textures and flavors makes every bite more interesting.
