Salads don’t have to be lettuce-based, nor do they need 20 ingredients. Easy examples include:

• Jicama, red onion and pink grapefruit segments gently tossed with a little lime juice and cayenne pepper.
• Spinach, chick peas, artichoke hearts, pitted olives, capers and feta cheese make a delicious Greek-style salad. Add grilled chicken and you’ve got a whole meal.
• If you’re more in the mood for Italian, try a caprese salad of baby tomatoes, basil leaves and tiny balls of mozzarella tossed with extra virgin olive oil and balsamic vinegar.
