5 Salads You’ll Love

I’ll admit it, I feel like I need to share with you about salads since I’ve been talking about chocolate sheet cake, southern cobblers in blackberry, chocolate and peach, as well as banana split cake. Salads are probably in order right about now.

Salads and tons of water.

Here are five salads I’m enjoying this summer that I think you’ll love, too.

 

1. Caprese Salad

 

Light and flavorful and ready in minutes, caprese salad is a definite go to lunch or appetizer with all of our fresh tomatoes and basil. Perfect for the hot weather we’ve been having, too.

 

2. Steak Salad

It’s no secret how much I love a good steak and this steak salad makes a delicious supper on busy weeknights or weekends. I love that we can also grill a few extra steaks over the weekend and enjoy steak salads later. Cook once, each twice! But if you don’t mind heating up your kitchen just a bit, you can just as easily cook your steak in a well-seasoned cast iron skillet. Talk about the perfect crust!

 

3. Cheeseburger Salad

Cheeseburger salads are one of our all-time favorite salads, too. They are just like a loaded cheeseburger without the bun. Gotta love that!

 

4. Granna’s Pasta Salad

If you’d rather have a cold pasta salad without all the meat, this pasta salad my mother-in-law makes it a sure winner! Full of delicious bites of cucumber, olives, and spring onions it is just a perfect salad for lunch or even a light supper.

 

5. Maytag Wedge Salad

I can have Maytag Wedge Salad made in no time flat which is one of the reasons I love so much, but the flavor combination and the crunch make it absolutely the perfect salad for lunch or supper.

 

Okay, those are my top five. What are some of your favorite salads? I’d love to know.

  1. Love love love! Cheeseburger salad is my favorite 🙂

  2. Not a huge salad fan, specially those wedge salads are like my nemesis. BUT, if I had to choose, I’d say cobb salad. I love tons of everything, chopped and ready for me to devour! And then cake, of course.

  3. I love caprese salads! I also love chef salads and spinach salads :).

  4. IT’s been so darn hot here, all these salads look absolutely perfect!!

  5. Oh goodness, this look AMAZING.I could eat salads for every meal, and am always looking for new inspiration!

  6. BOOKMARKED!!!! Since I went gluten free I am ALL about salad. And I can tell you… I want almost every one of these!! (except the one with, ya know, gluten) Thanks SOOOOO much for this fantastic post!

  7. OOOHHHH! Dinner is DONE!!! Perfect to keep me from MELTING this week!

  8. haha love your cheeseburger salad! In our house we call it “meat salad” 🙂

  9. I love caprese salad; one version I make that we love combines it with pasta and avocado. A summer favorite with red, ripe tomatoes.

    But my go to salad lately seems to be mixed greens, fresh fruit, some goat cheese and a simple dressing of olive oil and balsamic vinegar. I’ve used plums, peaches, apricots and strawberries for the fruit component and it’s become one of my staple, in a hurry dishes this summer.

  10. Lovely! I really like the idea of grilling extra steaks when you’re firing up the grill so you can make the salad later in the week.

  11. Oooo…love them all, but Granna’s is calling my name 🙂

  12. I love salad and this is timely as we’ve been eating more and more salad recipes.

  13. I’ll take 5 of each.

    I LOVE salad.
