Recipe Roundup: Salads

For me, salad is always an afterthought during the winter; during the colder months, it’s a lot more comforting to warm up with a hot bowl of soup or a hearty stew. So usually, salads don’t start to make their way into my meals until the spring. Last weekend, I had the most refreshing and delicious salad at a dinner party and now all I can think about is salad! So I’ve pulled together some recipes that are currently at the top of my lists of dishes to try. A Memorial Day gathering might be the perfect opportunity to test out a recipe or two, don’t you think? Have a great three-day weekend, everyone!

Thanks so much for featuring my quinoa salad! It’s one of my favorite recipes – simple, but with lots of different flavors and textures. Hope you enjoy it!

We have salad as a main course at least twice a week in the warmer months. Love some of your picks!

That Thai Mango Salad with Grilled Shrimp is so bright and cheerful and looks mouthwatering. Summer really is the perfect time for salad and this a great round up.

Hi Nancy! Thanks for the shout out above. I am so glad you found my favorite kale salad recipe. I love that salad and it has turned kale haters into kale lovers. I am enticed by some of these other salad recipes, especially the roasted carrot and avocado salad.

If you ever need any other recipes or anything else, let me know! I hope you’re enjoying this beautiful Holiday weekend.
