A simple swap is all it takes to reimagine panzanella. This Italian summer salad usually features cubes of day-old rustic bread and tomatoes, tossed with basil leaves and a simple vinaigrette. But slices of ripe, juicy peaches in place of, or in addition to, the tomatoes bring a different (but entirely welcome) sweetness to the mix.
We've given this creamy cucumber salad recipe a healthy update. But it's still so good, you won't even notice! Reduced-fat sour cream (in place of full-fat) lowers the calorie count without losing taste.
The same brine and spices are used for the cucumber, carrot, and beet variations, so it's easy to make a batch of one kind -- or one of each for a large crowd.
This carrot recipe was featured on an episode of "Mad Hungry with Lucinda Scala Quinn."
