Summer is a time of abundant garden produce – fresh, crunchy and juicy! What better way to enjoy it than a big bowl of salad! Salads are so incredibly versatile and there is no limit to the combinations and flavors that you can create. Make a small side salad to a complement a meal, or add some protein, carbohydrates and healthy fats, and you have a complete meal!

Thank you for the wonderful selection of salads from last week’s Summer Salad Sunday! I hope you’re getting as much inspiration as I am from the variety, creativity and amazing flavor combinations of the salads being shared here. Here are my featured salads from last Sunday……all of them featuring mango! I hope you’ll take the time to check them out:
This salad with chicken, mango and black bean sounds like a delicious combination. But what really stood out for me is the Cilantro Lime Sauce which looks so creamy and delicious!
Mango, bacon and avocado combine with greens and purple cabbage in this tasty salad. But again….the dressing! You simply have to check out the mango dressing!
I’ve been hearing a lot about kelp noodles lately, and although I’ve never tried them, I sure want to now! This salad combines kelp noodles with a bunch of other tasty ingredients to create a mouth-watering salad!
Salad Dressing Feature:
I also wanted to highlight this Strawberry Maple Vinaigrette by The Old-Fashioned Housewife. This dressing sounds so delicious that it sounds like she is giving me permission to pour dessert over my salad!
Carnival Guidelines – PLEASE READ:
1) Real food ingredients only! This means no industrial foods such as processed vegetable oils (extra virgin and cold pressed are ok), refined sugar, unfermented soy etc.
2) No store-bought salad dressings! Making your own mayonnaise or vinaigrette using quality oils and other healthy ingredients is so easy, and so much better for you. If you’ve never tried making your own before, stay tuned, because there are sure to be many great mayo/vinaigrette recipes shared here!
3) Please add a link back to Summer Salad Sundays on your post. This is standard linky etiquette and helps more readers find all of the great recipes shared on Summer Sunday Salads. Only posts that link back will have a chance of being featured.
