The perfect salad.


In the heat of the summer, sometimes lunch or dinner is simply a salad at my house. It can be insalata caprese, cobb salad, an anti pasta plate, chef salad, a ploughman's lunch. Summer meals become lighter and less complicated. Make ahead salads like macaroni salad, taboule, or a cold rice salad are included. What is your favorite salad meal?

    I know for sure we could be friends or neighbors. That sounds like a excellent meal. I am using Greek yogurt to replace mayo or sour cream in most recipes. Thank you for reading my hub pages.

    moonfairy, I like the menu at your house. A one dish meal. It really does sound like a good salad.

    janshares, really your idea is a favorite cool summer dish. That is the kind of recipe that I make a double batch and eat for two (or three) meals. Thanks. You reminded me of another good cold summer meal.

    peachpurple, You can't go wrong with that simple classic. Do you make the dressing with anchovy?

    sheilamyers, Just a good ol salad. Simple and summery. Spinach would make this even better.
