Because it's the time of year when a trip to your nearest farmers market is exactly the thing to make you forget about traffic, a long work week — or your taxes, which are due Wednesday — here's a terrific salad recipe from the folks at BLD. Make extra dressing and use it later. And remember that if you can't find exactly everything on the list, just substitute something that looks good. It's a salad, after all, not a list of itemized deductions. Save the stress for where it's needed, which is not your dinner.
