7 Stovetop Summer Dinners From 1 Grocery List

Self Logo By Christine Byrne of Self | Slide 1 of 7: Growing up, my mom would make a raw broccoli and bacon salad with raisins and mayonnaise for summer potlucks. I wasn't a big fan of it back then (no kid likes raw broccoli, and even now I have a hard time appreciating mayo), but I've since started making a similar salad for myself, with a few tweaks. This one is served warm, and the broccoli is cooked to al dente. White beans bulk it up to a full meal, and the mayo gets swapped for olive oil and a little bit of apple cider vinegar.Get the recipe here.
