Refreshing and Delicious Salads
Refreshing and tasty, I love how salads add an extra element to a meal. There are so many options and they are all amazingly delicious! This is the ultimate guide to help you find the best salad for what you are looking for! They are fantastic because you can load up on the seasonal fruits and veggies without having to sit behind a hot stove cooking. Which is especially tempting during those hot summer months!

Beautiful, colorful and each very unique, these recipes are sure to be a hit at any party throughout the year!
Salads can be either the main dish or the best supporting side. I have rounded up my very favorite recipes which include both for you to choose from. These tried and true recipes are simple and easy to make and there is a huge variety of options! Salads are no longer just some simple greens with a choice of a few dressing options. They are bold, flavorful, and mix up so many delicious ingredients. Try adding one to your delicious meal or try one as the main course for your lunch! They are all SOO good that I am positive you won’t be able to stop at trying just one!
Salads are made up of ingredients that you want to keep looking and tasting fresh! I have gathered a few tips and tricks to making them stay this way so that you can enjoy them for as long as possible!
- Clean those greens: If you have a lettuce spinner, now is the time to use it! Washing your greens and getting them prepped is just as important (if not more important) than even making the salad. Make sure to clean those greens!
- Add opposite textures: Salads are the best when they have opposing elements. If you have something soft, add something crunchy. If you keep this up, they will have amazing taste and texture!
- Adding dressing: For most green salads, you aren’t going to want to add the dressing until the last minute. That way your greens stay fresh and dont get soggy and wilty! For pasta salads, I like to add the dressing right away and let it soak into the noodles. Then, I add just a bit more to make sure it tastes fresh right before serving!
- Chopping: When making your salad, save the chopping of things that brown (bananas, apples, etc) until right before serving. Then they look fresh and delicious in your bowl!
