Salads. JeanMarie Brownson. +Chicago Tribune 
Even as I attempt to eat less red meat, I still crave steak. During the summer months, its virtues suit our lifestyles. Steak cooks quickly, is easy to transport to a picnic and tastes great hot, warm and chilled. Leftovers make indulgent sandwiches. Grilled steak, piled on garden-crisp greens topped with a freshly made dressing, ranks as a favorite dinner on a warm evening.

Taus Authentic reviewed by +Phil Vettel , restaurant critic for +Chicago Tribune 
I first became a fan of Michael Taus' food when he opened Zealous in Elmhurst; it was 1993, and Taus was producing French-informed, globally influenced dishes that were masterpieces of clean, harmonious flavors. The best option was his degustation, six courses for $35. Ah, the good old days.

Potato salad can be healthy. +Chicago Tribune 's Marissa Conrad reports.
You wouldn't dream of messing with Mom's potato salad recipe, the one that uses a small mountain of mayo, and maybe a little more for good measure. And you shouldn't. But if you'd like to present a lighter option alongside the classic at your next picnic, the tried-and-true recipe below will have guests digging in for seconds.

Lollapalooza food preview from +Phil Vettel in +Chicago Tribune 
Checking out the music at Lollapalooza , which runs Friday through Sunday in Grant Park, means making tough choices. With dozens of bands divided among multiple stages, it's physically impossible to hear them all, and sometimes two of the bands you most want to see are playing at the same time, on opposite ends of the festival grounds.
