10 Easy Salad Recipes for Summer!

With summer officially here, we (along with neighbors and friends) are barbecuing more.  We are often invited to bbq potlucks on weekends that require us to bring a salad to go along with the main course.  Often times I am looking for a new easy salad recipe to try and love to bounce back and forth between leafy salads and pasta salads.  My recipe binder is now full of easy salad ideas!

The Salad Recipes look grand. Not only do they look delicious but refreshing to the palette too.

I like your salad picks. Like you Jody, I recently started a new diet or a new food lifestyle (food lifestyle is the name I came up with) and I found a ready made salad that I'm addicted to. It's a kale salad with a poppy seed dressing and a packet with pumpkin seeds and dried cranberries . I love it but I also add a few extras I need in my salad - carrots, sweet peppers, bean sprouts, radishes, celery and what ever else I can think of. I also like to add different kinds of seeds for something different.
