Tips on Creating a Delicious Summer Salad

Updated: Aug 30

Use summer produce while you still can to create a delicious summer salad when it's too hot for anything else. You'll hydrate while consuming this nutritious meal and if you follow these tips, you'll create something flavorful and delicious too!

  • Add protein- Obvious & nutritious protein options include chicken or fish, but if you're looking for a quick option a lean deli meat like turkey or canned fish like tuna could be great! If you're looking for a vegetarian option, beans are perfect. I personally like roasted garbanzo beans as a meatless protein option.

  • Add a fat- You could add goat cheese, parmesan or even avocado. You could also add texture by adding nuts. Adding a little of both is a great combination.

  • Add a complex carb- Dried fruit or a seasonal fruit is great in salad. Peaches, tomatoes, corn & strawberries are perfect summer produce options.

  • Season your dressing! If you're making your own dressing with an acid (lemon, lime, balsamic, etc.) with a fat (any oil), at least add salt and pepper but you could also add garlic powder or minced garlic.

  • Add herbs. Adding cilantro, chives, or green onions will add extra flavor.
