Summer Salad Sundays! 7/15/2012

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:

Mulberry, Goat Cheese and Avocado Salad by Sumptuous Spoonfuls

A beautiful salad with plenty of flavor and goodness, paired with a ginger-grapefruit vinaigrette – sounds wonderfully delicious, tangy and refreshing!

Pineapple-Black Bean Guacamole by This Vintage Grove

You have to check out this guacamole! Talk about shaking things up with the addition of pineapple and black beans. A great recipe to keep in mind when you’re looking for a little something different.

Blueberry Corn Salad w/ Honey-Lime Dressing by Farm Flavor

Love the combination of summer vegetables and summer fruit. Lots of crunch and plenty of flavor. Perfect as a tasty side dish for a BBQ or picnic!

Salad Dressing Feature:

I also wanted to highlight this Sun Dried Tomato Ranch Dressing by Sumptuous Spoonfuls. As if ranch dressing wasn’t tasty enough already….imagine even more flavor with sun dried tomatoes!

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 🙂
