I wouldn’t classify myself as a salad fanatic… but in the summer, I love to load up on fresh veggies that catch my eye at the farmer’s market and top them all with a tangy vinaigrette. Plus, meals that don’t require turning on the oven always get bonus points this time of year.
Recently I’ve been getting creative with my market haul and perfecting the art of a big salad that contains no greens. You heard me right: not a lettuce leaf in sight.
These salads are a celebration of summer, with unique fruit and veggies pairings that are sure to spice up your salad game!
No-lettuce salads are having a major moment in the blogosphere, so I’ve rounded up 10 simple, tasty recipes I’ve currently got my eye on. Let us know in the comments which recipe you end up adding to your meal plan for the week!
