Slide 1

Flatbread Salad including Chickpeas, Mint, Feta, and Tomato Position a rack in the center of the oven and heat the oven to 350°F. Bake the lavash on the oven rack until lightly browned, 4 to 7 minutes; let cool (it will crisp as it cools). Meanwhile, whisk the lemon juice, shallot, sugar, a large pinch of salt, and a couple of grinds of pepper in a small bowl. Let sit for 10 minutes, then whisk in the olive oil and mint. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Combine the chickpeas, tomatoes, and snap peas in a large bowl. Toss with the vinaigrette. Coarsely crumble the lavash over the top. Add the feta, arugula, and peppers, if using, and gently toss to combine. Serve immediately. 1/2 tsp. granulated sugar Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper 7 Tbs. extra-virgin olive oil 1/3 cup packed, finely chopped fresh mint 1 15-oz. can chickpeas, drained and rinsed 8 oz. cherry tomatoes, halved (about 1-1/2 cups) 6 oz. sugar snap peas, trimmed and quartered on a diagonal (about 1-3/4 cups) 6 oz. feta, crumbled (about 1 heaping cup) 3 oz. baby arugula (3 packed cups) 2 Tbs. minced Peppadew peppers (optional)

Add the shrimp and cook on one side until pink, about 1 minute. Flip and add the shallots, lime zest, and 1 tsp. of the lime juice. Turn the heat to medium and cook until just opaque throughout, about 1 minute more. In a large bowl, whisk the remaining 2 Tbs. oil and 1 Tbs. lime juice. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Toss the frisee and the melon in the vinaigrette.

Shaved Fennel Salad including Lemon, Mint, and Toasted Almonds Trim the stalks from the fennel bulbs and remove the tough outer layer. Cut the bulbs in half lengthwise and core. Using a mandoline, shave the fennel crosswise; you’ll have about 6 cups. (If you don’t have a mandoline, quarter each bulb and use a vegetable peeler to shave them lengthwise.) In a medium bowl, toss the fennel with the lemon juice and 1/2 tsp. salt and let sit for 10 minutes. Add half of the almonds and mint and all of the olive oil and toss to combine. Transfer the salad to a platter or divide it among serving plates. Scatter the remaining almonds and mint over the top, finish with a few grinds of pepper, and serve. 2 large fennel bulbs (about 4 lb. total) 3 Tbs. fresh lemon juice Kosher salt 1/2 cup sliced almonds, toasted 1/4 cup fresh mint leaves, torn 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil Coarsely ground black pepper

Tear it into 1-inch pieces and let rest on paper towels for 20 minutes. Bring a large saucepan of salted water to a boil. Add the green and yellow beans and simmer until tender but still crisp, 3 to 5 minutes. Drain and cool. Place the tomatoes, onions, bread, and cooled green and yellow beans in a large serving bowl. Tear the basil into 1?2-inch pieces and toss carefully into the bowl along with the oregano. In a small bowl, whisk together the vinegar, oil, and garlic. Season with salt and pepper.
