Here I've pickled peppers, onions, and fennel, and I've been tucking the mix into sandwiches, spreading it atop melty cheese toasts, and, as intended, sprinkling it over just-baked pizza. I imagine it would be fabulous with grilled bratwurst or in a Philly cheesesteak-style sandwich. // alexandracooks.com

Thai-Inspired Chicken and Cabbage Salad

This kale and quinoa salad has a lemony-mustard dressing, dried cranberries that plump with the cooked quinoa, crisp celery, toasted almonds, and goat cheese. It comes together in a snap and has been a welcomed addition to the summer salad rotation. It also keeps well in the fridge for days, making it perfect for lunch-on-the-go or a picnic at the beach. I find it irresistible, and while it's a great side salad, it's nearly a meal in itself. // alexandracooks.com
