Easy and Delicious Salads That Are Perfect for Summer
Is there anything better on a hot summer day than a cool, refreshing salad? Sure, we all love our barbecues and grills, but a nice light salad is often exactly what the doctor ordered. This week we have some easy and delicious salad recipes that are perfect for your Ocean Isle Beach vacation.
Green Salad with Turnips, Strawberries & Pepitas
You had us at strawberries! This is such a refreshing and light salad, we had to try it ourselves. Something magical happens when the sweet flavor of the strawberries meets the crunch of a turnip. Pepitas are like pumpkin seeds and loaded with flavor. Check out Country Living’s website for this recipe.
Grilled Cobb Salad
We found this recipe on Bon Appetit, so you know it is going to be incredible (and it is). The nice thing about this salad is the wonderfully charred flavor you get from the grilled veggies, like tomatoes. The light vinaigrette dressing brings it all together. The quinoa and avocado provide this salad with plenty of protein and healthy fats. Perfect for summer. Click here to visit Bon Appetit’s site for the recipe.
Charred Shrimp & Avocado Salad
You can’t visit Ocean Isle Beach without indulging in some fresh North Carolina Shrimp. One of our favorite ingredients in this recipe is not just the shrimp, but the fact they use pineapple. If you love pineapples, avocados and shrimp, this is the salad for you. Click hereto see Good Housekeeping’s recipe.
Honey Lime Rainbow Salad
No summer menu is complete without a fruit salad. Whether you are looking for a healthy snack, breakfast or a dessert the fruit salad is a great choice. This salad also has honey and lime, giving it a little extra punch that we are sure everyone in the family will love. For this recipe check out the websiteCooking Classy.
Cucumbers are synonymous with summer and refreshment. Many people love cucumber water on a hot day. If you like the cool, refreshing taste of cucumber, onion and vinegar (or cream), this is the recipe for you. In fact, we have two great ways to make this delicious recipe. Cucumber salads are popular in Germany and we are forever grateful German immigrants brought this dish to America. For a great recipe check out The Stay at Home Chef.
If you are looking for that perfect balance between nutrition and taste, this might just be the best recipe in this post. The good folks over at Love & Lemons have a fresh new take on this classic broccoli salad. The key to this salad is the fact that, unlike many broccoli salads, it has no dairy and no bacon, making it friendlier for our vegan and vegetarian friends. Here isLove & Lemon’s recipe.
