Summertime and the living is easy! When the temperature rises, we start grilling and living on salads in this household. Lots and lots of salads. Here are 15 of my favorite from the blog’s archives. Some are entrée salads. Many of them can easily be turned into a meal by adding a favorite grilled protein. They all lend themselves to substitutions of a preferred green or a more seasonal ingredient as the garden starts producing. There are several grain-based salads as I find they hold up well in the summer heat and can be assembled in advance. Again, feel free to substitute a different grain of choice. Make your salads come alive wth infused oils and vinegars and flavored salts. Click on the highlighted titles to access the recipes. Happy summer!
Don’t like figs? Grill peaches for an equally dazzling salad.
Substituting sliced peaches or nectarines for the citrus would also be good in this salad.
