As I’m creating this post, we’re still in the midst of the 2020 pandemic. Who knows when it will be a good idea to get together as a “crowd,” so perhaps a “small outdoor gathering with everyone staying six feet apart” is currently more appropriate. 😉
Or, these recipes might be best saved for next year (in other words, PIN THIS for later!!).
Either way, I decided to be optimistic and share these great healthy Summer salads with you now. After all, they’re also great, easy, healthy options for just you or your family to enjoy as well!
