16 Favorite (New) Summer Salads To Try

It’s no secret that I’m a bit salad-crazed (plenty of amazing recipes here and here), and with temperatures rising in the summer-time, my urge to cook big elaborate meals diminishes. Really, I just want to lay in the sunshine, play in the ocean, and eat popsicles. Typically, that translates to sweating in the sunshine, chasing my toddler through the sprinklers, and eating her popsicle rejects.

But I digress.

Salads. I could eat one every day. (Followed by a cookie, of course. These easy dark chocolate chip oatmeal cookie bars are in my fridge right this very second.) But I like to shake things up in the kitchen, so I’m always experimenting with salad and dressing recipes and combinations.
