Not that we’re tired of ice cream or anything, buuuuutttt MODERATION!
Also, when produce looks this good, how can we not dream in shades of leafy greens?! I know I find it impossible not to.
Basically, I’m a firm believer in eating as much of nature’s bounty as we can at any moment in time, but especially during the summer when everything is so fresh and fabulous. And the easiest way to do that? THE SUMMER SALAD!! There is just no better way to let summer produce shine than to throw it in a bowl, tossed with a light dressing and some cheese. (Always cheese.) I’m convinced.
There are probably a million and one ways to make a summer salad worth craving, but below I’ve rounded up 15 of my favorite healthy summer salads from around the internet. Featuring fruits, veggies, grains, herbs, and just about everything in between, they are guaranteed to satisfy every palate and jump start a movement towards more and better salad consumption. And I think we could all use more of that.
