Spice UpYour Salad

Salads can be great for lunch or dinner! Instead of grabbing a prepared salad in Newhouse’s, try using your own ingredients to make something different than your ordinary greens!

“Sauté zucchini, yellow squash and scallions in olive oil until tender. Toss with cooked orzo, parsley, dill, goat cheese, salt and pepper.”
“Boil 1/3 cup cider vinegar, 1/4 cup each sugar and vegetable oil, and salt. Pour over green and wax beans, kidney beans and red onion slices; marinate 1 hour. Season with salt and pepper; top with parsley.”
These salads are a welcome break from the boring selection offered in dining halls and are sure to leave your taste buds begging for more! Squash is in season, so take advantage of it!
