“Bathed bread” is a traditional French sandwich that is at its best when the oil from the ingredients has a chance to soak into the bread overnight. But if you’re short on time, keep a tub of the salad in the fridge for a few days and scoop onto toasted bread for a quicker meal. This is a recipe of convenience: if the odds and ends of tasty olives and veggies in your freezer looks a little different, don’t be afraid to play around with things like capers, roasted red peppers or sun-dried tomato to get a flavor you love.

- 1 clove garlic, minced
- 6 basil leaves, chiffonade

It’s easy to get influenced by the latest trend only to find out later that you’ve been duped by clever marketing that may be only partially true. Fortunately, my supermarket offers Guiding Stars, which highlights foods with good, better, or best nutritional quality to help me cut through the clutter and inform my decisions. Even if a product claims it’s keto-friendly or gluten-free, I know the stars will indicate whether the product has more positives than negatives per calorie. Armed with Pollan’s wisdom and with the stars as a reference, I can shop my local store with fresh eyes.
