19 Summer salad recipes

I never used to be a big salad eater. If you’d told me I’d be writing a post with 19 of my favourite salad recipes a few years ago I’d have laughed.

I think it’s because I used to think that ‘salad’ was just iceberg lettuce with some cut up tomato, onion, maybe some grated other veggies and coated in vinaigrette.

I kid you not it wasn’t until a couple of years ago that I started to realise there was a whole world of salad recipes out there without an iceberg lettuce leaf in sight.

14 Summer salad recipes

I’m rather obsessed with vegetable salads and today have put together what was mean to be a list of 14 summer salad recipes but turned into 19 wholefood, mostly plant-based salads from me and some of my favourite side salads (some can be a whole meal in themselves) from around the web.

Ok mostly they’re from Alice Nicholls’ Instagram feed because she makes the most incredibly delicious salad recipes.

Delicious Pumpkin Spinach and goats cheese salad

One of my absolute favourites from the blog though, is my pumpkin, spinach and goat’s cheese salad. It has been a winner every time I’ve served it and everyone who has tried it has loved it and requested the recipe.

That’s one of the awesome things about having a food blog – I can just send people a link when they request a recipe!

Most of these recipes can be made in advance making them perfect for the festive season when you’ve been asked to bring a plate or if you’re hosting a holiday party.

Ok onto the recipes…
