Recipe Roundup: 5 Favorite Summer Salads

July 3, 2015

Summer is a season of contradictions: so much delicious fresh food, so little desire to cook. For me, the perfect summer kitchen is one I barely see. Cold drinks and colder salads are the answer. Plus an endless supply of corn on the cob (but that goes without saying).

After conducting extensive taste tests, I’ve rounded up five of my favorite garden-to-table salad recipes:
