Summer Salad Sundays! 7/8/2012


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:

Strawberry and Roasted Chickpea Salad w/ Cinnamon Vinaigrette by The Taste Space


Cinnamon roasted chickpeas and a cinnamon vinaigrette sound intriguing yet delicious in this salad with strawberries, greens, mint and almonds.

Mediterranean Potato Salad by Real Food, Real Deals


This Mediterranean-inspired potato salad sounds like a really flavorful and light alternative to the more traditional mayo-based potato salads.

Mini Caprese Appetizers by Gluten Free A-Z


Cute, novel, and a great appetizer idea for parties or gatherings. I have a cherry tomato plant growing in my garden, so I can’t wait to try this!

Salad Dressing Feature:

I also wanted to highlight this Honey Lemon Ginger White Wine Vinaigrette by Sumptuous Spoonfuls. While you’re there, check out the amazing salad that this vinaigrette was made for!

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 🙂

  20. I think everything published was actually very logical.
    But, what about this? what if you were to create a awesome post title?
    I ain’t saying your content is not solid, however suppose you added
    something to possibly grab people’s attention? I mean Summer Salad Sundays!

    7/8/2012 | Easy Natural Food is a little boring. You could look at
    Yahoo’s front page and watch how they create news titles to grab viewers
    interested. You might add a related video or a picture or two
    to get readers excited about what you’ve got to say.
    Just my opinion, it would make your blog a little bit more interesting.

  21. A lot more details on Seaglass by White Light Productions are available on the organization’s web site,.

    Talk to the store manager and find out how much they charge to rent a booth,
    usually they charge a flat monthly fee. Choose your
    sellers If you are concerned about sellers, focus on those with lots of excellent feedback.

    Here is my web site; FlosCaeli

  22. You should remember few facts while choosing your
    quilts. You can make this simpler by mailing your catalog to them or inquiring by
    email. It can be expensive when you first get started as you
    will need to go out and get all your tools to actually do the craft.

  23. For now it is best just to grab up your domain name.
    You can make this simpler by mailing your catalog to them
    or inquiring by email. Handmade items are generally far better in more ways than one, and they should be sought out whenever possible.
