Best Summer Salad Pinboard

to-make summer salads!

summer salad pinboard

Our Saturday morning farmers market walks have become few and far between lately. This morning felt a little cooler normal (86 vs. 103), so off we went. But after a sweat-drenching walk back, I have just one thing on my mind: big cold summer salads.

I made a pinboard full of them… Click here to go see the full board.

Happy weekend & stay cool…

    I love summer salads big time (stating the obvious!), so this is great. Thanks for featuring my cucumber noodle/watermelon thing! xo

      you’re welcome… even if it’s more of a “thing” than a salad :).

  6. Thank you for this summer salad inspiration!!! My kitchen is undergoing a renovation, and I can only prepare cold foods. This helps me tremendously. All I have/need right now is my garden and my refrigerator. So excited to try the summer peach and corn salad (peaches are about to be in season here in CO!)…thanks!

      I feel you… living with a kitchen renovation is the worst! You seem to be doing better than I did, I ate take out for 3 months straight 🙂

  7. Excellent selection of summer salads! Cannot wait to make each and everyone over the summer!
