I am not lying when I tell you I was genuinely sad when I poured out the last cashew cluster from the tall jar I was storing them in. These nuts have a way of working their sweetness into your heart, so it's truly a travesty when they're finished. You might want to make two batches to prolong this.

It's pure summer comfort food by way of the grill. Drizzled with a creamy herb sauce and prepped in just a few minutes, you'll be making these regularly — guests or not.

If you're not one already, this salad is the one that will make you a breakfast salad believer. And it's easy to see why — it has a lot going for it. Fresh ingredients like spinach, plump blueberries, and creamy avocado make you feel like you're starting the day off on the right foot, while protein-rich eggs, bacon, and quinoa will keep you going until lunch.
