Spinach Salad with Citrus and Roasted Beets
Curly leaf spinach has great texture and flavor and holds this mustardy dressing well. For additional color, feel free to use a variety of different colored beets. You can also swap blood oranges for the tangerines.

Shrimp-and-Pork Spring Rolls
These supremely crispy spring rolls are filled with a mix of marinated shrimp, ground pork and a handful of colorful julienned vegetables, like carrot, jicama and beans. The fried shallot rings add alluring flavor and crunch to the spring rolls, too, but they're optional.

Instead of having a greasy, battered coating, the tofu “steaks” in our revamped Parmigiana are breaded and lightly pan-fried in just a small amount of oil then topped with part-skim mozzarella, fresh basil and your favorite marinara sauce. This Italian classic will please even those who are tofu-phobic.

Bacon-wrapped Rice Cakes with a Jalapeno Ponzu
The rice cake lends it a chewy texture, while the crispy bacon adds smoky flavor. You can choose whatever bacon you like, just make sure the slices aren’t too thick. These can be assembled a day ahead and refrigerated until cooking time.
