10 Amazing Summer Salad Recipes

We love having friends over especially in the summertime when we have the pool open!  Nothing better than spending the day outside, swimming, cooking on the grill and spending time with our friends.

One thing I always like to make for a cookout is a salad.  It’s easy, refreshing since it’s cold and you can really dress it up to taste great and look pretty!  Plus when you a salad with veggies, you won’t feel guilty about the desserts you’ll also have!
