Recipe: Summer Salads

Since Memorial Day Weekend is officially around the corner (signaling the kickoff to summer!), I'm looking forward to fresh, summery meals, BBQ and tropical drinks. There are so many fun salad options throughout the season, especially for vegetarians. Adding fruit to a basic salad can really pack a great punch and a great cheese brings the flavors together to melt in your mouth. Below are a few of my favorite recipes.

Blueberries & Gorgonzola Cheese, tossed in Mixed Greens with Walnuts and a Raspberry & Walnut Vinaigrette

Chunky Tomato Avocado salad, sprinkled with Red Onion, Cilantro in Lemon juice with a dash of salt

Grilled Peach, Mozzarella Cheese, Green Onions in Cilantro Vinaigrette with a dash of tequila

Watermelon & Feta Salad, tossed with Spinach, Red Onion, thinly sliced Tomatoes & Avocado in Balsamic Vinaigrette (so good with fresh mint!)

Nectarines, Strawberries, Sliced Green Tomatoes & Basil with Feta and candied Pecans in a Lemon Poppy Dressing, tossed in Arugula

Grilled Corn, Heirloom Tomatoes, Black Beans, Bell Peppers & Mixed Greens in Lemon juice with sea salt

Mandarin Oranges, Almonds, Red Onion, Celery tossed in crunchy lettuce with Pomegranate Dressing
and fresh pomegranate seeds

Can't wait!! Whats your favorite summer salad?
