Coconut-Poached Chicken and Baby Spinach Salad with Spring Herbs

This Thai-inspired salad is light and healthy yet full of satisfying flavor. Tender baby spinach is enlivened with vibrant spring herbs, and, together with the kaffir lime–infused, coconut-poached chicken, it’s a match made in heaven.

The chewy, protein-rich edamame plays well with the tart, crisp apple and briny olives, and you should be able to find most of the ingredients at your neighborhood grocery store.

Quick Braised Lentils with Blistered Tomatoes and Kale

The last of summer tomatoes enliven this dish and, when blistered, add sweetness and brightness. Fall kale is plentiful this time of year, and pairs well with earthy lentils and crumbled goat cheese. To save time with this recipe, buy pre-cooked lentils, which can be found at many upscale markets.

Lentil Salad with Roasted Carrots and Labneh

The earthy taste of lentils goes perfectly with the earthiness of root vegetables. Carrots, roasted to a caramel sweetness, seem to be a particularly felicitous match.
