#1 Grilled Chicken Cutlets with Summer Succotash
Put a grill pan on high heat. Season 4 thin chicken cutlets with 1/4 teaspoons of pepper and salt each. Grill until the cutlets are cooked through. Turn them once. At the same time, heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a medium-high large skillet. Mix in a cup of thawed frozen baby lima beans, 1 pint of grape tomatoes, and 1/2 cup of corn. Cook while tossing once in a while, until the tomatoes burst. Mix in a tablespoon of grated Parmesan cheese and 1/2 cup of torn, fresh basil leaves. Include lemon wedges and a whole wheat roll for each portion.
#2 Salmon and Chickpea Lettuce Wraps
Drain a small can of wild salmon. Include 1/2 cup of chickpeas, 1 tablespoon of sun-dried tomatoes, 1 tablespoon olive oil, and a sprinkle of dried dill. Serve them using bibb lettuce leaves.
