The Best Summer Salad Recipes **Giveaway**

173 comments | Leave Comment


In Summer, the go-to dish for me is salad. Sometimes I toss everything together (avocado, egg whites, nuts, craisins, whatever), add lettuce
and dive in. And sometimes I just want a bowl of mixed baby greens with olive oil, a sprinkle of kosher salt and a squeeze of lemon. Salads
are perfect for lunch and dinner. Come to think of it, breakfast too.  Also snacks. Load in some lean protein and you’ve got a full meal.

Smoked Salmon Salad

Pull these classic ingredients off a heavy bagel, ditch the cream cheese, and make this a light salad with the flavor combos you love.

Chopped Mexican Salad

Add a sprinkle of taco chips to top off this fiesta with a crunch.


Loaded Turkey Salad

You won’t miss waiting in line at the deli when your bowl’s filled with this salad.


Thai Chicken Salad

Leftover BBQ or roast chicken in the fridge? Don’t throw it out—try this!

  1. When I eat salad as a main dish I usually want protein in the salad. It just seems more satisfying and hearty without being heavy. My favorite protein to add is Grilled Chicken breast but I also like firm dry tofu seasoned with lots of black pepper and seasoned salt and grilled or pan-fried.

  2. avatar says: devoelyas

    I love having chicken salad for lunch. I make it for my husband as well, he really likes this light, yet filling meal.

  3. I make us salads for lunch daily all year. The best though are in the summer with native vegies. Adore adding strawberries to spinach. Are eagerly waiting for our tomatoes to bear fruit. Sometimes add lean protein too. In the summer tend to do this more

  4. avatar says: Amy

    My favorite is to eat a salad with fish in it for seudah shlisheet. The smoked salmon salad above will be a great one to try in the future!

  5. avatar says: mink

    lettuce, tuna, apples, walnuts, Swiss & Cheddar cheese, anchovies & the oil they come in, lime juice – sounds weird but I love it

  13. avatar says: kewpie

    my favorite way to eat salad is as natural,using locally grown produce,and using vegan ingredients for the toppings-dressings(I am a vegan,but if I would win the cheese,have many friends who would love to recieve it!)

  14. I love salads that also have a fruits in it…like orange slices. It adds a fresh spring to the veggies!

  15. avatar says: tt

    My favorite salads in the summer have leftover grilled veggies with tempeh, hummus, sliced almonds and cilantro

  16. I love salad with avocado and salsa for a nice Mexican kick. It doesn’t need any added dressing as the creaminess from the avocado and juice from the salsa create their own dressing.

  17. avatar says: kayte71

    I love spinach as my main salad green- & love smoked salmon, spiced nuts, and blue cheese.

  18. avatar says: GANDORF57

  28. avatar says: sajego27

    I have guinea pigs so I grow greens and herbs for them and me year round. Don’t limit yourself to lettuce! There’s a huge variety of seeds available and greens don’t need a lot of space, just a sunny south window. Try growing your own!

  29. avatar says: azriel

  37. avatar says: Aviva

    Lately, I have just been using whatever produce and extras I have around and throwing them together in creative ways. I especially love to add cheese, avocado, fruit, and/or something crunchy like nuts or croutons. I also like experimenting with different oils, vinegars, and herbs for dressings.

  38. avatar says: arice

  39. I love to eat a classic caesar salad, with parve caesar dressing.

  40. avatar says: emamwl

    I love any salad that has fruit but with a sour dressing. The contrast is great

  41. avatar says: dfox

    I’m pretty about about making salad. We often cheat and get the salad in a bag variety. Hey, it’s better than nothing.

  42. avatar says: tcohen

    Crispy tofu looks great – I love switching focus to salads as mains for shabbat summer meals.

  43. avatar says: mushi

    Salads. and lettuce are wonderful. I love to just make summer sandwiches and use lettuce instead of bread. But I also cook a lot with lettuce, braised romaine, endive or almost any lettuce is great, also wonderful in soups. Add fruits and nuts for something different. or serve after your main entee as is done in many European countries. You always inspire me Jamie.. thanks for all of your terrific recipes!

  44. I love to eat an Israeli couscous salad with baby garbanzo beans, dried cranberries, sliced celery or cucumber (or whatevr veggie I have on hand), and a little pinch of salt. I mix it with olive oil and vinegar. So good!

  45. Oh my goodness! I love salads. I love them as side dishes, I love them as entrees. I love them with lettuces, love them with protein…

    …I kinda of sound like Dr. Seuss with this post… I just really love SALADS! :)

  46. avatar says: bigbandss

    My favorite salad is a Caprise salad. I use locally grown red ripe tomatoes and sliced Buffalo mozzarella cheese, a few basil leaves, all topped off with a creamy balsamic vinergarette.

  47. avatar says: DCFive

    My favorite salad is Romaine Lettuce, Shredded Carrots, Sliced Mushrooms, Croutons, and Grilled Tuna Steak with a Caesar Dressing – YUMM!

  48. avatar says: PuttieMom

    I love making chinese chicken salad, cut up finely and serving them to my family or guests in a Chinese rice takeout box with chopsticks!

  49. My fave is a BBQ Chicken salad with black beans and tortilla strips

  50. avatar says: fbogus

    During the summer I like grilled chicken breast over a Vietnamese-style rice noodle salad – shredded lettuce, sliced cucumbers, chopped peanuts.
    I usually make my own vinaigrettes, especially when my tarragon is exploding out of the yard.
    I also like to make my own croutons. It’s a great way to use up mediocre bread. Make a garlic oil with waaaaay too many cloves of garlic, toss with bread cubes, sprinkle with salt and coarsely ground black pepper and a few shakes of jalapeno hot sauce, and bake until crisp on the outside, tossing once or twice. Remember to bake the garlic cloves, too. Either toss them in the salad or sneak them as a snack when no one is looking.

  51. avatar says: anngeri

    As the farmers market is bursting we like this mix of chopped uncooked broccoli and cauliflower, pistachio nuts, sunflower seeds, dried cranberries, chopped red pepper, chopped sweet onion, and a vinegrette  made with rice wine vinegar, olive oil, dash of sugar, salt and pepper. Let it chill for one hour. It is so colorful!

    This is great as a side or add cold julienned meats or fish. 

  52. I love making salads with ancient grains like quinoa and farro!

  53. avatar says: DebbieB

    Our typical summer shabbat lunch includes many different kinds of salad. Usually we begin with either mock crab salad or fruit salad, then on to 2 or 3 veggie salads, home made chummous and a chicken salad. Dessert is usually “cookie salad” with a variety of cookies instead of just one kind at a time.
    My biggest regret is that our local farmers market is on Sunday. Which I do visit so regularly that the ‘knife sharpener guy’ Tony, tells me he misses me if I skip a week!

  54. avatar says: pizzab

    I love a salad that has crunch and smoothness. For instance, I like to add almonds and pieces of avocado.

  55. avatar says: ofrenkel

    i love a good salad with grilled chicken. i also love something crunchy some chow mein noodles or chopped almonds. on the dairy side i love adding feta cheese!

  56. I love fruity salads with honey in the dressing — my husband is a huge fan of savory salads, which I can totally get behind if it’s to accompany a dinner :)

  57. avatar says: chana s

    my favorite way to eat salad is a big bowl loaded with tons of different veggies, and a light vinaigrette dressing!

  58. avatar says: Scurnow

    My favorite salad is mixed greens, dried cranberries, mandarine orange slices, and any kind of nut………..yum!

  59. avatar says: alyrap

    My latest salad craze is deconstructed falafel. Big bed of romaine topped with cucumbers, tomatoes, a big dollop of hummus, and falafel balls. Garnished with pita wedges, greek olives, turkish eggplant, avocado or whatever else I have around, and then drizzled with a tehini dressing. Goes great with borekas. Yum!

  60. avatar says: traymona

    I love salad. I could eat salad 3 times a day. I like black olives, feta cheese, bacon and ranch dressing on mine.

  61. avatar says: dvice

    I like garden salad with light dressing

  62. avatar says: miriama59

    I like making macaroni salad with fresh tomatoes, green and red peppers and sharp cheese.

  63. avatar says: shlager

    texture and variety is the key! a salad that has crispy (lettuce), crunchy (cucumber, red pepper), smushy (beans/chickpeas, avacado), juicy (tomatoes), chewy (craisins), tangy (hearts of palm) and sweet (carmelized nuts) is ideal…and a yummy dressing, of course!

  64. I have been eating salads for lunch. I’m trying to lose a few pounds and it’s a delicious lunch choice :) Today I splurged on orzo salad to add a few carbs.
    vac 924 at gmail dot com

  65. I love making a fresh cobb salad! I grill up some chicken breast, boil the eggs, slice up fresh avocados, radishes and any other yummy veggies I have toss it together with crisp romaine and homemade russian dressing. Delicious!

  66. I like to eat a salad with toasted pine nuts, strawberries, and feta with a strawberry balsamic dressing.

  67. avatar says: niteowl

    Leftover quinoa makes a yummy salad. I add grape tomatoes and chopped parsley, some fresh lemon juice, olive oil and cumin dressing, and crumbled feta cheese. It’s a great make-ahead salad for seudah shlishit.

  68. Shalom!

    I like to eat all kinds of salads. My current favorite, though, is potato salad, especially when it is made with bleu cheese dressing. Yum!!!!

    • avatar says: R

      I love digging into a colorful salad — so summer fruits combined with lettuce is ideal for me. Light sweet vinagrette & it’s a meal from heaven!

  69. avatar says: gibbylet

    I like to eat it on stuff, I make pizzas that go well with green salads, and put arugula/romaine salads on turkey sandwiches. There’s a way to fit salad on almost anything if you try enough!

  70. avatar says: aahaft

    like eating salads plain, for lunch, dinner or a snack. My current fave- mango papaya avocado salad sometimes with a bit of fresh mozarella

  71. avatar says: Ari Ross

    My favorite dinner: Salad & Sushi. You get the lightness from the salad and greens, which perfectly compliment the somewhat heavier (but still light) sushi and fish! Yummm…

  72. avatar says: luckyme

    I like a variety of lettuce chopped with lots of fresh veggies and a sprinkle of sunflower seeds.

  73. avatar says: samantha

    Mmm…I love salad!! My favorite way to prepare it is to just put in whatever vegetables I have in the kitchen: mixed greens, tomatoes, cooked broccoli, cooked green beans, kidney beans, olives, etc. and top it off with some feta cheese and some balsamic vinaigrette. It’s a great way to use leftover ingredients. YUM!!

  74. Cheese! Especially goat cheese. I love julienned vegetables and a good vinaigrette. Croutons are also fabulous, and I prefer my lettuce chopped or in smaller bites. If it’s a meat salad it needs lots of veggies!

  75. avatar says: RachelBL

    I like a salad that balances multiple flavor and texture profiles. Dark greens with fruits, nuts, cheeses- salty, sweet, crunchy, creamy- yum!

  76. avatar says: elk99

    I prepare a salad for lunch every day for my husband and I. I cut the basic vegetables and throw in a protein. Anything from Salmon, Gefilte Fish, leftover cold cuts (not together!), to Feta cheese. I either make my own dressing or use something I purchased. My favorite though is Romaine with fresh tomatoes and grilled chicken. The best dressing – a bit of lemon juice, oil, salt and pepper. Light and delicious.

  77. avatar says: telcon

    Eating it one veggie at a time

  78. avatar says: kityblue

    I make salads many ways…favorite is chopped salad.

  79. avatar says: Lexiquin

    I love to eat salad as a main dish and throw in a little bit of everything! I also enjoy a light fruit salad instead of dessert ;)
    Thanks for the giveaway!

  80. avatar says: Koshirts

    My favorite salads are a really a dinner plate thrown together. When I’m tired of the dish separation, I throw the veggies, meat, sauces together to make the best combinations. My current favorite is southern style crispy chicken with summer fresh from the garden veggies and light dressing to tie it together. The best!

  81. avatar says: julis55

    I love to eat salad with no dressing

  82. My favorite way to eat salad is when someone else washes the lettuce for me :) then it’s fun to add in any chopped veggies with chicken or boiled eggs or cheese with some olive oil, lemon juice, splash of vinegar, maybe salt and pepper

  83. avatar says: dalesusan

    mmm. . .my favorite way to eat salad is with my homegrown tomatoes and peppers from my patio pots w/ homemade italian salad dressing.

  84. avatar says: Hana

    WHAT!? They make ou chalave Israel Pecorino Romano! Why can’t we get that in L.A.! Where can I buy some online!

  85. avatar says: edahgal

  90. avatar says: Gr8Reader

    Fresh salad…..flavorful lettuces, strawberries, avocado, sliced almonds, goat cheese, mango, cucumber, grape tomatoes…..whatever is in it, had to be fresh…. and very little if any dressing (home made of course)

  91. I like salads with cheese, fruit and nuts for lunch with a vinaigrette dressing.

  92. avatar says: drwallach

    I love to always keep grilled eggplant and peppers in my fridge. So then I just add it to whatever greens and staples I have in the fridge like feta, hearts of palm, tuna, avocado etc and then I get a fancy restaurant salad for much cheaper!

  93. avatar says: susan1215

    I love salads with lettuce, bacon bits, croutons, tomatoes, onion, cheese and blue cheese dressing.

  94. avatar says: kiddo323

    I have learned more from the comments on this post than from any comments I’ve read before. Thanks for all the salad suggestions!
    We love broccoli salad – you know, the one with fresh broccoli, diced red onions, seeds, nuts, craisins, and a light dressing. Can be pareve or dairy. It’s very forgiving; vary the quantities or varieties of ingredients, make it a day ahead, forget one of the dressing ingredients, it tastes good anyway. Perfect for company or just family. Can be made year-round. Should be in every bride’s repertoire!

  95. avatar says: SaucheyR

    I love a salad with spinach, mixed greens, fresh mozzarella (I mean really fresh and soft – the little balls that melt in your mouth!), tomatoes, grilled chicken and a light honey mustard vinaigrette. Lots of black pepper to top it off!

  96. avatar says: tsk11230

    Grilled chicken and blueberries on romaine with a little lemon juice and oil is healthy and delicious.Try it.

    My favorite way to eat salad is to pick it from my little garden of artisan lettuces, very young and tender leaves and immediately rinse it and serve it with homemade kefir ranch dressing and whatever I want to add, like chopped eggs, croutons, heirloom tomatoes if I have, anything I can find.

  101. avatar says: 1froglegs

I like to make a plate of artisan baby spinach, sliced-in-half grape tomatoes, thinly sliced celery, (wide) grated cheese (type varies by my mood), a little drizzle of honey and all of this topped with an egg (method of preparation again depends on my mood, but poached or over easy is outstanding).

    My Fave way to eat a salad is gluten free, lots of raw veggies, radish, carrot, tomato, green & red bell peppers, green & black olives assorted lettuce & spinach, finely shredded Mozzarella cheese & a little Italian dressing. Sometimes I add some grilled chicken breast chunks.

  106. avatar says: RenaB

    On summer shabbatot my menu consists primarily of salads…chicken salad (not the creamy kind), taco salad, fruit salad, pasta…etc. Lots of yummy and fresh ingredients that don’t heat up the kitchen or require a hot plate. They’re always a HUGE hit.

  107. I like a salad of mixed fruits and vegetables topped with a protein either chicken, fish or cheese

  108. avatar says: saralaya

    Salads are the best for the summer time. I like making macaroni salad and potato salad. It lasts for a few days and can be a meal by itself. I also like a good garden salad too. We usually always have a garden salad in the fridge.

  112. avatar says: gr8chefmb

    I just had a lovely salad for dinner last night. It had a mix of greens and spinach (no iceberg!). I topped it off with mushrooms, red/yellow pepper rings, cucumbers, grape tomatoes, baby carrots, fresh green peas, just a few black/green olives and a very light sprinkling of feta crumbles and shredded Asiago. I sprinkled some sunflower seeds and almond slivers. It was dressed with just a bit of blue cheese dressing diluted with olive oil and balsamic vinegar. For protein, I added a couple of spoonfuls of Israeli couscous salad and a multi-bean salad (kidney, edamame, garbanzo, green bean, thinly sliced onions, bell pepper, and celery). It was yummy!:-)

  113. avatar says: witchy64

  128. avatar says: jteek2000

    We love to eat chicken or tuna salad with lots of fresh grapes, sweet onion, and roasted pecans for main accents and then add in whatever else sounds good and is on hand, diced apple, carrots,or red pepper for example.

  129. Using roasted chicken as a start to a salad makes for the most versatile results

  130. I love all kinds of salads, especially if they have lots of different textures and flavors in them – crunchy, soft, sweet, salty, etc.

  131. avatar says: cdmtx65

    i love greek salads with olives , goat cheese,cucumbers etc. with olive oil & Vinegar dressing … soooo tasty ! :)

    Not such a salad person except for Ceasar salad! I like the lettuce pieces to be as big as possible!

  134. My favorite salad is made with dark greens, spinach, tomatoes, carrots, avocado, nuts, boiled eggs, croutons with a light blue cheese dressing.

  135. I love salad and love to start with romaine leaves, I then add diced red, yellow and orange peppers, grape tomatoes, red onion, green olives and of course, some CHEESE! I think I’m part mouse I love cheese so much! The Cheese Guy had a special, but small run, of sharp cheddar that was cholov yisroel and was beyond delicious! I dress my salad with some dressing from Walden Farms to keep the sugar and fat calories down.

  136. avatar says: jagar0047

    my favorite is a good ceasar salad or a chicken salad

  137. avatar says: Aisling

    I like to stuff a tomato with chicken salad made with raisins and curry powder.

  138. I eat salad every way and every chance I can. It’s a perfect meal on Weight Watchers and I use Walden’s sugar free/fat free dressing so I can load it on. Add a little chicken or a handful of fat free feta, and you have a meal with protein and very few WW points. Yum!!

    This is the time of year when we have the most amazing summer salads! We have organic gardens here at home, and our salads are based on what’s ready to go! Tonight we’ll enjoy spinach, arugula, lettuce, baby red onions and radishes in our salad, as well as a few raspberries with a raspberry vinegarette. Next week, new choices, new treats and new delights at our favorite time of the year here in west central Wisconsin. Hurrah for my husband for creating mini irrigation systems for our raised beds; we will survive the drought and have much to share with our food pantry in town!

  146. we live on salads in the summer. Usually spinach with grilled chicken and veggies.

  147. I like my salad with dried cranberry, walnuts and a little fruity dressing

  148. I love eating salad with lots of cheese or lots of meat (chicken). Added extras like mushrooms and olives are a must, also!

    I like eating salad out of a huge bowl. It might not be a huge salad, but I like feeling like a caveman…and a big bowl seems to do it. Aaarrrr.

    I love summer salads. My favorite is to take the leftover grilled veggies and slice them up, toss in a handful of feta and dress with some balsamic and olive oil. Yum! Thanks for the chance to win.
