Chinese Chicken Salad with Red Chile Peanut Dressing
Avoid the temptation to substitute store-bought dressing when you make this recipe. The sweet-and-tangy blend of peanut butter, honey, ginger and spices takes this salad to the next level.

Feeling fancy? Make Ina's easy, 20-minute gazpacho and put it in the refrigerator to chill until dinnertime. Then, enjoy it al fresco, served with a crusty, French boule and white wine that has just a touch of acidity.
