1. Kale Salad w/ Strawberries

Ok, what’s not to love about strawberries in a summer salad? And the salmon cakes I topped it with makes it so filling. This one’s so easy to throw together, and it makes you feel like you’re eating a restaurant style salad.

2. The Ultimate Cobb Salad

A classic. I love this one because it’s a delicious throw together salad. And if you don’t have all the ingredients listed, you can always mix it up with what you do have handy in your fridge!

3. Chopped Chickpea Rainbow Salad

This one screams summer. It’s great as a main salad with a protein added or as a side salad that you can bring to a party.

4. Kale, Almond, & Cutie Salad

Can you tell I like kale salad? This one’s a favorite of mine too–so many yummy flavors and good textures.

5. Brown Rice & Black Bean Salad w/ Avocado & Cilantro

This salad with a Mexican flare is delish. It kind of reminds me of a burrito bowl and makes a great base for all sorts of protein toppings. This is my go-to for potlucks since it’s always a hit.
