I don’t know about you, but at this time of year I start getting summer on my mind. Warm evenings, time with family and friends, and barbecued dinners. Lemonade on the front porch, naps in a hammock, and kids staying up way too late playing outside. In other words, the good life.
Summer to me also means lighter fare. Less pasta and heavy sauces and more crunchy vegetables and vinaigrettes. Oh, sure…I love my salads with other savory yumminess like cheeses and nuts and warm chicken hot off the grill. But the health benefits of all of those veggies are still there. The fact this healthier eating makes putting on those summer skirts and shorts a bit easier? A healthy, delicious bonus.
So in anticipation of summer, I’m sharing with you some amazing salad recipes I can’t wait to try. I’m sure you’ll love them, too!
