Hot days mean crisp meals. And nothing is crispier than a salad. Make a salad a heartier dinner with lots of warm seasoned veggies. 

Toss vegetables with your favorite seasoning (garlic and pepper, or cumin or just salt).

Don’t forget about texture! Mix cooked vegetables with crisp, cold veggies for more flavor and contrasting textures. Celery, sprouts, cucumbers and carrots are great for added crunch.

Romaine flower?! Crisp romaine is great for more crunch! Mix with spinach or other salad greens for more nutrition.

Toss everything into a bowl and top with your some dressing. There’s lots of flavors going on here, so a mild dressing should do. I topped with some rice vinegar- gives a oriental feel that mixed well with the sprouts and mushrooms.
