All The Summer Salads

I don’t know about where you live, but over by me, it’s been a little warm.  We started the week with an excessive heat warning which was carried over from the weekend.  Pretty much I was just a giant ball of sweat.

So. Much. Sweat. All The Summer Salads | Life Healthfully Lived

When it gets that hot, I pretty much lose my appetite because who wants to eat when they feel like they are sitting in a swamp?

Crocodiles, I suppose.

Well, I’m not a croc but I still gotta eat even if it’s 90 degrees out and feels like 105.  That’s when I turn to my trusty summer food staple: salad.

Now, don’t get all depressed because a salad doesn’t have to be a sad pile of wilty leaves doused in ranch dressing.  It can be, but it doesn’t have to be.  My understanding is that if you put any type of dressing/sauce on a chilled dish, it can pass as a salad.

I rounded up some of my favorite salads to make and heat as the temperature climbs so you can find them all in one spot.  If you are slowly melting into a sweaty puddle, revive yourself with some of these tasty (not hot) salads!
