Does anyone else crave salads during the summer?
Seriously. I eat them year round, but something about heat and humidity makes me want crisp greens topped with fruit or veggies EVERY. single. day.
And I can’t just have a small salad. It has to be the size of my head for me to feel satisfied, which is why I try not to go to Panera Bread all the time. I end up spending $10 on a salad I could make at home for $2.
Anyhoo, I rounded up five of my favorite salad recipes from Hungry Gator Gal (HGG) to share with you today. You only need a few minutes to put one together, and you probably have many of the ingredients already.
If you’re in a lunch rut, give one of these salads a try. They can be made the night before and packed in the fridge for work or school the next day.
In other words, you can make a ginormous artisanal salad at home and not pay an arm and a leg for an overpriced, small bowl of lettuce with five tomatoes, a cucumber and the smallest squirt of dressing you’ve ever seen.
If you’re a regular reader, I bet you forgot about some of these salads. I know I did, and I’m the one who created the recipes! If you’re new to my blog, here’s a taste of what you’ve been missing.
