Stir it into coleslaw, potato salad or pasta salad for extra zing.
Add it to water when boiling potatoes to infuse them with a bit of extra flavor.
Stir it into Bloody Marys, martinis or micheladas.
Whisk it with olive oil, minced herbs and lemon zest for a tangy dressing.
Use it as a marinade for chicken before grilling. Let sit overnight to help tenderize the meat.
Or boil it until the brine is reduced by half to concentrate flavor, then whisk with butter to make a bright sauce for drizzling on cooked fish or vegetables.
Warm weather means it’s finally time for light, produce-packed dinners and plenty of grilling. This week, we’re filling you up with veggies galore and dishes that are meant to be enjoyed outside. Happy spring!
