The parts of this entrée salad come together quickly, and most can be done ahead of time: steaming the broccoli, cooking the pasta, making the dressing. It needs only some hot French bread or rolls to complete the meal.

  • 1 tsp. vegetable oil
  • 1/2 yellow onion (sweet, thinly sliced)
  • 2 Tbsp. orange juice
  • 2 Tbsp. balsamic vinegar
  • 2 Tbsp. olive oil
