I think we can all say that summer is officially here and let’s face it summer is all about salads, BBQ’s, cold drinks and paddling pools. No one really wants heavy food through the summer so a salad can be a great meal whether it’s lunch time in the hot sun or dinner in the cooler evening breeze.
We thought it would be great to bring together some summer salad recipes for you to use this season, no matter the occasion.
Grilled Chicken Cobb Salad just sounds like something we should be eating each and every day! From Cafe Delites, this recipe is super easy and packed full of flavour. Chicken Caesar salad is hands down one of the most popular and loved salads around the world. So is a good Cobb salad. Merging two into one? EVEN BETTER!
One of the most popular ingredients on the market at the moment is avocado, so this Easy Avocado Greek Salad sounds delicious with a popular addition on a classic salad recipe. From Cucina De Yung this recipe is sure to be a crowd-pleaser and great as a side or main dish!
Crunchy Thai Peanut and Quinoa salad just sounds like all kinds of heaven.

Of course, if you’re after something easy then this Italian Salad from Chelsea’s Messy Apron is the way forward. So while your main entree is cooking, you can toss together this simple salad.
