Summer Salad Sundays! 7/22/2012


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:

Gazpacho Salad by The Healthy Beehive


Gazpacho is such a refreshing summer dish, and what a clever idea to take all of the ingredients and turn it into a salad!

French Lentil Salad with Fresh Mint by Food Connections


This salad is a perfect one-bowl, protein-rich meal. Lentils are combined with a tasty selection of salad vegetables, with kalamata olives, pistachios and mint adding even more flavor and goodness.

Crab, Avocado and Corn Salad by The Fountain Avenue Kitchen


Crab meat is such a treat, and pairing it with corn and avocado makes for a very tasty salad!

Salad Dressing Feature:

I am delighted to be featuring this award winning Miso Sesame Dressing by Saturdays with Maggie. A versatile, tasty and healthy salad dressing. Congratulations, Gwen!

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 🙂

    Hi Debbie,

    Phew, is it hot there over the hills? We were like 104 degrees today. Blah. Staying cool with salads, that’s for sure.

    This week I am sharing a kale and golden beet salad with a tahini cider dressing. It’s so yummy, one of my favorite salads (although I can’t eat raw kale..or very much of it) I think this salad is great.

    Have a great week.

    Hugs,
    –Amber

      Yikes, I would melt in heat like that! We tend to average 10 degrees cooler, thank goodness. But perfect salad weather for sure!

  22. Yo can use those juicy pieces of meat to prepare a gourmet lunch or
    a dinner and make a delicious change from the usual gastronomic
    routine. Place beef on large piece of heavy duty foil (3′ x
    18. Flip steak about every two minutes using the fork thermometer
    all the other set points are about correct except the medium rare,
    probably for legal reasons.
