So what if it's zero degrees sometimes! Here are 15 bonafide Genius Recipes that will keep you in vegetables and dressings (and, occasionally, legumes and eggs and meats) from now until the sun sticks around long enough to grow a good tomato.
Better yet, bundled up in each of these recipes are smart techniques you can put to work on all of your salads, all year long—I've unbundled them below.
Got a genius recipe to share—from a classic cookbook, an online source, or anywhere, really? Please send it my way (and tell me what's so smart about it) at [email protected]. Thanks to Contributors Editor Sarah Jampel for the nudge to gather these up!
The Genius Desserts cookbook is here! With more than 100 of the most beloved and talked-about desserts of our time (and the hidden gems soon to join their ranks) this book will make you a local legend, and a smarter baker to boot.
