15 Mouthwatering Summer Salads

Bring on the warm weather with these mouthwatering, easy summer salads.  Make them year-round to bring a little summer fun to the table regardless of the season.

15 Mouthwatering Summer Salads - you will want to eat now

Hi happy, healthy people!

This summer I’m planning on embracing the season to the fullest!  Now that we are past last weekend’s cold snap, I’m longing to eat dinner outside on the patio.  I’ll be the one enjoying mouthwatering salads that require little to no actual cooking.

Since we are so close, I thought I’d share a roundup of some delicious spring and summer salads.  These are some of my favorites when the weather starts to warm!  These are great recipes because they are all CLEAN and don’t have bottled salad dressing.  But don’t be intimidated by that, they all use simple ingredients I keep in my pantry all the time.

Don’t mind if I start counting down the days until I can wear flips flops again. 🙂

    I love how the weather gets a little warmer (except for Colorado where I was snowed in this weekend) and everyone has salads on the brain! So many delicious fresh flavorful combos it never gets old. So many delicious ones here, thanks for the inspiration and linking up with us for Meatless Monday!!

    How did I miss this? I can’t even pick my favorite. I pretty much live on salads once it gets hot (who wants to cook when it’s 110 outside?). Pinning for later!

      Thank you! I agree. I’m more about assembling food in the summer than actually cooking it 🙂

    Wow! These really all do look amazing- I am not sure where I’d start first 😛 Thanks for sharing and linking up 🙂

    I love this time of year, when vegetables are plentiful (and in my yard!!) Any salad that has goat cheese or feta in it is a favorite in my eyes. 🙂

    I feel like if a salad is not photogenic it’s no good! Seriously beautiful pictures and beautiful salads. I only eat salads in the summer. Winter is for soups. And hot chocolate.
