Simplifying Delicious: Top Picks for Summer Salad Recipes

Hello Fabulistas! I always want to eat a bit lighter in the summer and look for new summer salad recipes to keep things interesting. They’re a great excuse to make a meal in bulk and invite your friends over for a fun evening al fresco! Here are some summer salad recipes that I have to try before the summer’s end.

Grilled Tropical Summer Salad

This is more of a traditional salad with lots of tangy, sweet flavor. The grilled pineapple would be such an easy addition that’s friendly for picky eaters. What an easy recipe!

Beet and Carrot Summer Salad

One of my favorite things about this salad is the vibrant array of colors! So often we think of dishes with lettuce as salad but this shows that summer salads are so much more. The beets, fennel, and blood oranges sound so flavorful!

Quinoa and Feta Summer Salad

A summer salad recipe list wouldn’t be complete without a quinoa dish. It’s become a salad staple… within good reason! With roasted peppers and feta, this salad sounds big on flavor when you’re not in the mood for something fruity.

Shrimp, Avocado, and Roasted Corn Salad

If something on a menu has avocado in it, it’s a good chance that I’ll order it! So I had to put this salad on my list to try before the end of summer.

Diced Caprese Salad With Pesto Dressing

Caprese is a classic. But summer always feels like a season to freshen up the expected. I say bring on the flavor and the pesto!
