Summer is in full swing in the Bay Area – and when it’s warm out, I love nothing more than a light, fresh and crisp salad! Here are a few that I am looking forward to sharing with my family and friends this summer!
Summer is all about keeping things simple! This salad emphasizes fresh, cool cucumbers but adds a touch of spice for contrast and a dash of lime to balance it all out. To me, this sounds like the perfect poolside salad.
Tomato, Cucumber and Avocado Salad
Tomatoes, cucumbers, avocados – oh my? This salad combines some of my favorite summer ingredients – and it comes together in under 15 minutes!
Charred and Raw Corn with Chile and Cheese
No summer is complete without whipping out the barbecue! I love that this salad adds a little something extra to your average bbq’d veggies.
This salad is a little heartier but still offers up a light option for a warm summer night. And it incorporates another one of my favorite summer ingredients, asparagus!
Summer fruit is simply impossible to resist! It’s beautiful, fresh, crisp and cool. And I love this twist on your typical fruit salad – enjoy it with an actual mojito and you’ve got the perfect way to end a long day!
