I love a good salad. So much so that I could eat a salad for dinner every single night (if my culinary husband wouldn’t get bored with them). And, of course I have two favorite restaurant salads that I’m working to perfect at home – the Newk’s Favorite Salad from Newk’s Cafe and a Pear and Goat Cheese Salad from a little bistro that we used to go to in downtown Norfolk, Virginia. (Once I get my copycats done, I promise I’ll share them with you!) Plus, salads are the perfect meal for a hot summer day. And they won’t leave you with a heavy, bloated feeling. Do you love salads as much as I do? Are you part rabbit, too? If so, I’ve rounded up 19 amazing, not boring salad recipes just for you! These delicious and easy summer salad recipes are so darn tasty that you’ll forget you’re eating lettuce!
