I hope everyone is busy having fun or relaxing in a hammock somewhere enjoying the long weekend. I can smell the barbecue on the grill and hear the laughter of family and friends gathering in celebration. Salads are my go-to side dish with any type of grilled foods, so I thought I would put together a list of my favorites to serve alongside a good burger (meat or meatless), piece of fish, or a mouth-watering rack of ribs. What makes salads so appealing is that they tend to have layers of flavors that usually start with some type of vegetable with either fruit, or other crunchy vegetables added, and lightly coated in a creamy or tangy dressing. Whether you’re a potato salad or green salad person, there’s always something that’s super satisfying about a good salad.
Here’s my list of favorites…have a great weekend.
