Summer salad recipes – 19 delicious, wholefood, nutritious salad and plant-based side dishes for summer barbecues and picnics. Some a meal in themselves.
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.
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.
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.
