Israeli Chopped Salad
Sumac and cinnamon heightens the flavors of this Israeli staple. Todd Coleman

While grilled, roasted, and boiled components can make for a lovely salad experience, when it comes to flavorful bang-for-your-buck, nothing beats the bright, refreshing ease of a no-cook salad. Coming together in minutes, their beautiful ingredients combine with tart sauces and dressings, making a side dish or meal that’s as flavorful as it is easy. The twenty salads we’ve gathere here have bright fruits, crisp greens, earthy grains, hearty proteins — and not a stovetop or oven in sight.
