Seven summer salads

I'm trying to add more easy breezy to my summer, and if I'm really going to relax and unwind dinner has got to be easy. Prepping a meal is so much simpler when the side is already taken care of. I love knowing there's a big bowl of chilled salad in the fridge ready to go when it's late afternoon and I'd rather spend a little bit longer watching the kids run around in the garden than stand at the kitchen counter.

Here are seven of my favourite summer salads:
  1. Tomato and basil kidney bean salad.
  2. Garlic pepper coleslaw with mint and toasted pine nuts.
  3. Chipotle southwest tater salad.
  4. Mediterranean pasta salad.
  5. Broccoli salad with lemon dill dressing.
  6. Sour ginger slaw.
  7. Spinach and strawberry salad with balsamic vinaigrette.
What are you favourite summer salads?

  1. just a summer time tip. visiting my mom on hornby island this last week i barbequed the lemon rosemary chicken (that i'd frozen in the marinade) in the morning and then my sister and i made a quinoa salad and greek salad early aft so we could stay on the beach longer and have dinner on the table in 5 minutes. i highly recommend that stragedy. it was still hard to come in from that lovely water!
