5 Summer Salads


It is the season of picnics, fireworks, and parties. I have picked out a few of our favorite salads for today and the few weeks ahead.

We love Balsamic vinegar and one of our favorite potato salads is this Balsamic Roasted Red Potato Salad (click for link to recipe). It can be served warm or at room temperature but the flavor is amazing! An unexpected dish for the summer is always fun.

This BLT Pasta Salad (click for link to recipe) is a great addition to a barbecue. The pasta with the BLT salad adds a whole level of texture and makes it nice and filling for those teens that you may have that seem to have never-ending appetites.

This is one of my most favorite salads.  The goat cheese, the blueberries, and the slightly sweet/tart dressing are amazing together! The toasted almonds add a nice crunch too. Click here for link to Blueberry Goat Cheese Salad with Lemon Honey Dressing.

This Ramen Asian Salad (click for link to recipe) was once the highlight of just about every barbecue five to seven years ago. Then it kind of disappeared after it was so overdone. I made this salad and remembered why  we loved it so much to begin with. Sweet and tangy with a great crunch we will be serving this salad again this summer!

Bacon Ranch Potato Salad (click for link to recipe) was a hit for even my mayonnaise hating children. The amount of flavor in this dish was off the charts and the little addition of some bacon made it the perfect summer dish for them.

Hope you see a salad or two that you may want to try this summer!
