Try going meatless at least one night a week. These vegetarian dinners make it hard to find an excuse not to.
Summer Veggie Salad
Time: 40 minutes
Budget Buys: Pine nuts and Manchego cheese add protein to the salad. You can swap in less-expensive walnuts and Parmesans.
Serve with Green Onion and Dill Quinoa: Rinse and drain 1 cup uncooked quinoa. Bring 1¼ cups water to a boil in a medium saucepan. Add quinoa to pan; cover, reduce heat, and simmer 13 minutes or until liquid is absorbed. Stir in ¼ cup chopped green onions, 3 tablespoons chopped fresh dill, 2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice, ½ teaspoon minced fresh garlic, ¼ teaspoon kosher salt, and ¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper.
