Fresh Summer Salads You’ll Want to Try


Last week I told you about a great new company called HarvestMark and promised you a few salad recipes (if you missed it, read up on it here). Today I’m living up to that promise and bringing you three new fresh salad recipes. These salads are perfect for hot summer days or get-togethers with friends.

#1. Arugula-Zucchini Salad >>> PRINT RECIPE CARD

This salad was good but a little bit of a pain to make. The recipe calls for julienne sliced zucchini and I quickly learned how tedious it was to cut the tiny slices by hand. I’ve since invested in a mandoline for an easier way to julienne slice vegetables.  I can’t wait to try it!

#2. Romaine Salad w/ Raspberry Dressing >>> PRINT RECIPE CARD

Sweet, crunchy, and delicious! This salad is almost like a dessert which is probably the reason I like it so much. The red onions offset the sweet dressing nicely.

#3. Herbed Tomato Mozzarella Salad>>> PRINT RECIPE CARD

I was a little hesitant about this salad but it turned out to be one of our favorites! If you’re going to do this salad right be sure to get the good mozzarella, not the cheap stuff — it makes all the difference. I added about 2 tbsp of lemon juice to jazz up the dressing a little.

Now that you’ve got the recipes its time to round-up the girls for some delicious salad, a little red wine, some chocolate, and something to dish about. Have a wonderful weekend, everyone!
