Temperatures are finally starting to rise and that could only mean one thing: salad season. I don’t know about you, but during the warmer months, sometimes I can’t bear the thought of eating anything hot – let alone turning the oven on! So I turn to big colorful salads filled with anything I have on hand. What’s great about these summer salads without lettuce though, is that no leafy greens means more room for interesting ingredient combinations. These summer salad recipes are the perfect hot weather meal or dish to bring to a potluck.
