Favorite Summer Salads

 I love Summer!  And I love the fact that I can go out into my back yard and pick the food I will eat.  My garden basically is just salad ingredients: lettuce, tomatoes, cucumbers, bell peppers, basil and the one and only veggie that people don’t usually put into salads; zucchini. 

I bet you can tell that I love salads.  So, I’m sharing some of my favorite salad recipes.


  • Strawberry Salad – make this one when you are craving something sweet – definitely worth it to make the strawberry poppy-seed dressing
  • Black Bean Salad – the beans will fill you up – just make sure to rinse them really well.  I changed up a few things on this salad.  I hate cilantro so I use parsley instead and I grated the jalapeno.
  • Caprese Salad – Amazing!  I love it with our without the balsamic reduction, so if that scares you leave it out and just drizzle with olive oil.  Super simple salad to make.
  • Fresh Corn Salad – definitely use fresh corn for this recipe it makes it is so delicious.

Hope you try one, enjoy!

  1. These recipes look delicious! And, being vegan, I can eat them all (just leave out the cheese for the Caprese). Thanks for sharing!
