So many of you have asked me to add a category for recipes at the top of the blog. I am working on that. The recipes that I am most asked about are my salad recipes. I am a huge salad fan, as I am sure you have noticed. Here are The Best Summer Salads from Cindy Hattersley Design all in one place so you don’t have to search.
I am a huge ceviche fan and this simple salad using Trader Joe’s frozen shrimp and scallops is simple to prepare and refreshing when it is too hot to cook. You can find the recipe for the Ceviche Salad on the Food Network here. You can also read my post How to throw a Simple Outdoor Galentine Party here as well if you would like to read the full post.
Another new favorite of mine (also quite simple) is Red’s Favorite Ahi Poke Bowls from Half Baked Harvest. I did vary the recipe very slightly by adding greens. You can read my entire post, A Delicious Healthy Dinner Salad you Will Love here, if you would like to see my substitutions.
Another of our favorite summer main dish salads is our Summer Flank Steak Salad. This is from an older post so please forgive the poor pictures. You can find the recipe for the Summer Flank Steak Salad here.
My daughter-in-law is an amazing cook so when I make a salad and she gives it the stamp of approval, I figure it can be on repeat. You can find the recipe for this White Bean Edamame Salad from Cher Castellano here. You could easily add chicken to this to make it a main dish salad. You can find the entire post, Gardenista, Fresh Salads, and a Beautiful Design Portfolio here as well.
I love brussel sprouts and kale. This recipe takes a traditional Caesar and gives it a healthy twist. You can find the recipe here in this post you might enjoy Progressive Dinner with Wine Pairings.
This tomato, peach, and burrata salad from Two Peas and Their Pod has been on repeat at our house for a few years. You can read the whole post where I featured it in Summer Salad, Outfit of the Week and More here.
I am a huge Ina Garten fan. Ina’s Panzanella salad has been on repeat at our house for years. I like to serve it in summer with her grilled Tuscan Lemon Chicken and fresh sweet corn. It is a favorite summer meal at our house when corn and tomatoes are at their peak. You can find the recipe for Ina’s Panzanella salad in my post, Thursday Fun Stuff Great Links, and a Summer Salad.
This corn salad from Mark Bittman for the New York Times is one of my favorites, and I have a few in my repertoire. I love the addition of mint. Again, you could certainly add chicken or shrimp and make it a main dish salad. You can find the recipe for Mark Bittman’s Corn Salad here.
I never realized how salad-heavy my recipes were here on the blog. I could write another entire post on salads. I will save that for another day. I hope you can find a salad or two that you might want to add to your rotation. Thank you for reading The Best Summer Salads from Cindy Hattersley Design. Have a great weekend. I will be back on Sunday with my pals Mary Ann and Annie with our Sunday favorites.
