How to Make the Perfect Summer Salad with “Top Chef” Hugh Acheson

timthumb.phpA cool, crisp salad makes for the perfect summer meal. When it comes to making a great salad, “Top Chef” Hugh Acheson told California Life it’s all about the fresh fruits and vegetables, which you should have no problem finding here in California.

“You guys are like the bounty of vegetables and fruits,” Acheson said. “There’s such an abundance and a variety out there. It’s just time to celebrate all that.”

One way to celebrate your favorite summer salad combination is by entering it in the UnknownNewman’s Own Greens for Good contest.

All you have to do is enter your favorite salad recipe using Newman’s Own salad dressing and nominate a charity of your choice. The winner will receive a $35,000 donation to their charity. The deadline to enter is August 21st.
