If I had to pick only one season and one category of food to blog about until the end of time, it would be this one. I’m pretty obsessed with salads all year round, but I just can’t get enough when tomatoes, peaches and zucchini are all at their best. It’s hard to go wrong with a salad by tossing peak-season summer veggies into a bowl with a simple, tasty dressing (that’s how many of these salads came to be). If you’d like some inspiration, though, here are some of my all time faves:

That spicy watermelon and avocado salad looks like it is on the Canvas home Abbesses plate – I’ve been yearning for these! Do you love this plate? The Heirloom Tomato Avocado & Chickpea Salad and the Feta Harissa Fattoush are right up my alley – YUM! Thanks for the inspiration, I’ll be all ready to go for my next family potluck! – Charlie, http://www.lemonbutterlove.com
Oh boy, that heirloom tomato, avocado & chickpea salad looks amazing. Love that the tomatoes are marinated in sherry vinegar. Going on the to-make list!
They look so summery! I can’t wait to try them–especially the zucchini and corn grilled salad. Thanks for sharing!
