Summer is truly my favourite time of the year. I love the weather for getting outside and enjoying all the great outdoor things there are to do. I also don’t like to put my oven on much in the summer as it heats up my house and even this week we have done cold plates and salads twice. It’s a nice change from the comfort food of winter but also I love the many choices for summer salads available.
I think that summer salads are also a great addition to all the summer entertaining I am planning on doing this year in our new home. Next month, I have birthdays for my two youngest boys so we will be having an outdoor BBQ party with family and friends to celebrate both boys as their birthdays are super close to one another it just makes sense. Although I will be making 2 separate cakes as I learned my lesson when celebrating two kids birthdays with one cake before. Also, my older two kids invite friends over constantly in the summer so having some of these salads on hand make it easy to feed a crowd. Even my pickiest kid loves my broccoli salad, which I have included on the list.
So without further blabbering, I have done up a list of 10 I think are just the bee’s knees and I hope you enjoy them too.
- Ranch Potato Salad from Sharing My Favourites
- Summer Pasta Salad from a Nerdy Mamma
- Watermelon Feta Salad from Melanie Cooks
- Dandelion Salad with Balsamic Pepper Strawberries from a Flying Couponer
- Summer Veggie Pasta Salad from Strength and Sunshine
- Crispy, Colourful Broccoli Salad from 4 The Love of Mommy
I think these are some really great recipes and I can’t wait to try all of them this summer. Nothing better than an easy, fresh salad to celebrate the warm weather.
