Summer Salad Sundays! 7/1/2012

Welcome to Summer Salad Sundays!

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!

Summer Salad Sundays is a place to link up and share your salad recipes, or to get some great ideas for your next salad. Summer Salad Sundays will run all through summer!

Anything goes!

  • Leafy green salads
  • Meat-based salads
  • Grain or lentil-based salads
  • Pasta salads
  • Potato salads
  • Coleslaws
  • Fruit salads
  • Cooked vegetable salads
  • Homemade salad dressing recipes/tips
  • ….etc…provided it’s healthy and salad-related!

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 the featured salads from last Sunday. I hope you’ll take the time to check them out:

Bacon Lettuce & Tomato Salad w/ Avocado and Poached Egg by The Saucy Southerner

A BLT salad with avocado and poached egg sounds like the perfect meal to me. Good protein, healthy fats, and wonderful taste!

Chicken and Cantaloupe Salad by MJ's Kitchen

Love the idea of serving this delicious chicken salad in it’s own edible cantaloupe bowl! This looks like such a tasty and refreshing salad for a hot summer’s day!

Watermelon and Mint: A Perfect Summer Match by The Soulicious Life

Watermelon and mint is indeed a perfect summer’s match, and The Soulicious Life offers 3 great ways to enjoy – salad, smoothie and popsicles!

Salad Dressing Feature:

I also wanted to highlight this Homemade Ranch Dressing by The Old-Fashioned Housewife. This is a much better and healthier alternative to the store-bought stuff.

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.

5) Finally, if you see something that you like, leave a comment for that person on their blog and let them know you found them through Summer Salad Sundays! It’s always great to get positive comments 🙂

    approximately! Bookmarked. Please additionally seek advice
    from my web site =). We could have a link trade arrangement between us

  27. Heya! I understand this is sort of off-topic however I needed to ask.
    Does operating a well-established website like yours take
    a massive amount work? I’m brand new to writing a blog
    however I do write in my journal everyday.

    menu modeling, or dietary survey information suitable for determining DRVs.

  30. naturally like your web site but you have to check the spelling on quite a
    few of your posts. Several of them are rife with spelling
    problems and I to find it very troublesome to inform the truth on the other hand I’ll certainly come back

  31. You might even find some smartphone versions of GTA. Once
    the download has finished, you will definitely be presented a dialog box which displays the options ‘OK’
    and ‘Run’. As a result of this, handset purchasing decisions
    should not be based purely upon a particular phone
    being referred to as a smartphone: this is does not mean that it is superior to a handset which does not utilise the term in
    its marketing activity, or is not listed as a smartphone in a review or
    product description.
