The Perfect Summer Salad

If you are hanging at home for the upcoming Memorial Day weekend and are planning a BBQ, I have the perfect summer salad for you. I made it the other week and it was so yummy and held up really well. I ate it for lunch all week long. I added some grilled chicken and it was perfect! You can make it for a summery dinner or bring it to a party. It can be made a day ahead and I actually prefer it that way.  I feel like it gives the flavors a chance to really meld together. Just make sure to toss it again right before serving. Let me know, if you give it a try. If you are looking for a fun cocktail to have at your cookout, you should give my Blood Orange Margarita a try.  it is so good and refreshing on a hot summer day. Enjoy!

  1. So much variety in that salad that I think my husband would love it. He actually loves weird salad where as I am all about the normal salad! The kids like salads that are a bit weird too come to think of it so I will have to see what they think of this one!

  2. I make a similar version all the time. So fresh and so good! I make this after a long day at work, since I do about 5 miles a day at work and I’m exhausted and need something healthy but quick.
