Our 6 Favorite Summer Salads

  1. Grilled Chicken Salad With Cilantro Lime Vinaigrette

    Sure, it’s a grilled chicken salad, but that doesn’t mean you’ll be working the grill in the summer sun. Grab a grill pan and make it on a stovetop, then dress it up in a healthy salad with an amazing vinaigrette.

  2. Ensalada Rusa (Russian Salad)

    Call this a rebound recipe. Potatoes are from the New World, but the Old World loves them just as much. This salad, invented by a Belgian cook working in Moscow in the 1800s, has made its way around the world and is quite popular in Latin America.

  3. Avocado, Shrimp, Spinach and Mango Salad

    Light as air, that’s one way to describe this salad. Enjoy this beautiful combination of rich and creamy avocado, sweet and tangy mango, and a fresh salsa verde dressing. When you’re done, you won’t feel like you need a siesta.

  4. Tuna and White Bean Salad with Roasted Peppers

    Tuna never need be boring again. Turn that trusty old lunchtime friend into a dinner companion in this robust salad featuring creamy white beans. It’s easy to make, healthy and full of flavor. Enjoy it as a meal or reduce the portions for appetizers.

  5. Chipotle Jicama Salad

    If you’ve spotted jicama in the produce department and were curious about this popular ingredient in Mexican cuisine, this recipe will introduce you to this lightly sweet vegetable. Though it shares some similarities to the potato, this fleshy tuber is best enjoyed raw.

  6. Crunchy Cilantro Slaw

    Take some cabbage and transform it into a delicious, crunchy slaw with a Mexican twist. Serve it as a side dish or use it as a topping for tostadas, stuff them into a taco, or put it on a burger instead of the usual lettuce and tomato.
