I’m the first to admit that vegetables and I haven’t always been friendly. Gaining a taste for leafy greens is something I’m working on. And you know what? I think I’m going to get there. I’ve already served up a couple of delicious new salads to my family!
I’ve been gathering recipes for new salads to try this summer. I thought you might enjoy adding these to your own arsenal of light, fresh fare for summer’s hottest days. Here are 5 Ways to Make a Summer Salad.
1. Greens + Grains
Quinoa and Spinach Salad | I Dig Pinterest
I loooove the crunch of nuts in my salad! This one looks like a tasty way to pack in the flavor and fiber.
2. Taste the Rainbow

“Rainbow” isn’t an exaggeration! Look at all the colors in this salad.
3. Nonstop Flavor

Oh. My. Word. Pomegranate seeds? Sign me up! This one looks like it’s got as much flavor as color. Yum!
4. Clean Green
Avocado, Strawberry, and Spinach Salad | The Charm of Home
If this salad tastes as good as it looks, then I need a plate of it right now! Love the combo of berries, avocado, and greens.
5. Superfood for Thought
