25 Fresh Summer Salad Recipes

Whether fresh from your garden or the local produce stand, these 25 healthy summer salad recipes feature colorful fruits and veggies to feed a crowd.

This summer the girls and I decided to plant a raised garden. We filled it full of tomatoes, squash, zucchini, cantaloupe, watermelon, basil, mint, peppers and okra. It is quite the summer produce haul if I do say so myself! Now, I’m not going to lie, I have absolutely no idea what I’m doing. And, honestly, I don’t have a very good history with keeping plants alive. But, we’re all keeping our fingers crossed that something (besides weeds) will grow. And just maybe we’ll be able to make some of these fabulous recipes!

I hope you’ll scroll through this beautiful, bountiful collection of salad recipes from some of my favorite dietitian food bloggers. Be sure to let me know if you try any of them! Enjoy!
