 Ahhh, summer!   For me, summer conjures up thoughts of casual picnics by the sea, long-awaited for vacations in exotic locales (pictured right, Kona, Hawaii), flip flops and cami tops, BBQs with family and friends, and so much more.          

In summer, there's also nothing quite like enjoying a wonderful meal on the veranda or lanai.  When the temperatures are on the rise, one way to stay cool and refreshed is to enjoy some scrumptious summer salads that are light, refreshing, easy-to-make, and yummy to eat.  Filled with lots of vitamin packed ingredients, they're also good for you.

Light, Refreshing & Tasty
Here are some of my favorite summer salads that can be enjoyed  as a meal and/or with a piece of grilled chicken or fish, with a burger, or as a side with a sandwich.  Pictured Right is my Simple Side Salad.

"Roasted Red Potato Salad with Chicken Sausage"

This dish is a new take on the traditional potato salad. Made with red potatoes, red onion, fresh rosemary, dill, spicy chicken sausage, mayonnaise, and Dijon mustard  all the tastes blend into the perfect dish that can be enjoyed as a meal on it's own or as a side to grilled meat or fish.  I take a container of this on summer picnics to enjoy with my Grandma Mary's Cornflake Chicken!

Here's a delightful salad made with a host of fresh, crispy veggies that delivers on high on nutritional value and big on taste and satisfying crunch. This is one of my go-to lunch and dinner salads.  To mix it up a bit, for lunch I also serve it with a diced chicken or egg. 

A business associate and  friend of mine, Earl Beadle, has a lovely and talented daughter, Merris Beadle. Merris recently shared this incredibly delicious recipe with me.  I love to enjoy this dish as a dinner side. If (and when) there are leftovers, I'll have these potatoes with eggs. 

Merris makes this dish working with the Colorado-based health conscious vegan/vegetarian catering company, Soltribe Cuisine.  Merris' blog: thecaliforniahomecook. 


Pineapple Coleslaw 
Tangy and sweet, this recipe is divine when you serve it with a dollop of tuna salad on top. I'm warning you now, you may want to eat this dish in private so no one can hear you moaning with pleasure and/or disturb all the exciting tastes you will savor!

Our citrus and avocado orchard produces an abundance of fruit.  As a result, I'm always looking for ways to incorporate all the wonderful produce into my recipes. For this particular recipe, I want to thank Carol Ridini, my sister-in-law, for sharing the joys of adding grapefruit and avocado into a salad!
