Pasta salad can be a whole new flavor experience each time you make it just by switching the veggies.
If you have leftover ham, chop it and add to make a main-meal salad!
Supermarket salad bars can be a real time-saver. Rather than chopping the vegetables yourself, why not buy already-sliced carrots, broccoli and onions from the salad bar? To save more time, use 1/3 cup purchased balsamic vinaigrette dressing or another vinaigrette dressing of your choice.
For brightly colored vegetables, blanch them by immersing in boiling water for a few seconds and then plunging into ice water to stop the cooking process.
