Serving a salad plate in the summertime keeps the house cool, and with the help of our Grab N Go salads, it’ll save time, too: just open and serve. Here are some suggestions:
The Middle Eastern Spread:
Grab a container each of Weaver Street Market Tabouli and Hummus. Add a pack of pitas made by the Mediterranean Deli on Franklin Street and a container of our creamy cucumber Tzatziki dip. (To make your own, mix plain yogurt, diced cucumber, minced garlic, salt, and pepper; it’s better if you make it the day before and the garlic has time to “mellow.”) Finish up with Divina stuffed grape leaves, sold near the olives.
The “Aren’t We Sophisticated?”:
Fill a serving bowl with chewy, cheesy Tortellini Pasta Salad from the Grab N Go case. In side bowls, serve your favorite olives from the specialty case and feta cheese, cut into cubes. Eat everything with toothpicks, even the tortellini!
The School Lunch:
Start with one of our classic salads: Traditional Tuna Salad, Mom’s Chicken Salad (or the deceptive Unchicken Salad), Classic Egg Salad, or Mom’s Potato Salad. For the side, slice a ripe local tomato into wedges and sprinkle with salt. Slice a cucumber into long wedges, served with salt and lime juice. (If you want to go all out, break out the celery and peanut butter and fill some “logs,” with or without ants.) Then open a box of hearty crackers and start snacking.
There’s nothing like cool Gazpacho at the end of a hot day! Weaver Street Market Gazpacho is sold in the Grab N Go case. Just open and serve! Add a French baguette; rip off bite-sized pieces and scoop them through softened butter.
The Salad Plate:
Create a combo of your favorite Weaver Street salads! Remember to include some protein (Mediterranean Lentils, Red Curry Tofu, Szechuan Tempeh Barley), some carbs (Moroccan Couscous Salad, Spicy Szechuan Noodles, Lemon Artichoke Pasta Salad), and some vegetables (Sweet and Sour Broccoli or one of our cabbage-ful Slaws). Serve them on a bed of lettuce.
Pour a tall glass of iced tea, and dinner is served.
