Summer Salads

We’ve had some seriously hot and humid days this summer, and I know you’re having them too.  We’ve  been enjoying  cool, salad meals when it’s too hot to cook or muster up an appetite.  I’ve found some new salad recipes that I’ve added to my collection of favorites, so here they are.  I’m just posting pictures of the salads and links to the recipes.

  This is Zesty Lime Shrimp and Avocado Salad.  Leah found the recipe on Gina’s Skinny Taste website.  I did have to make a couple of changes because  we don’t care for jalapenos or cilantro.  This salad is versatile.  It can be served on a bed of greens, or in a wrap or pita.  I’m giving you the link to the original recipe.  This is delicious and filling.  Try it, you’ll like it!


This is Refreshing Watermelon Salad, and yes, it is refreshing. We love this delicious fruit salad.  It’s watermelon, cucumber, fresh mint, feta cheese, and balsamic vinaigrette.  I got it from kraftrecipes.com.  Its very tasty served on a bed of greens.  Make this.  You can’t go wrong.


  I haven’t tried this salad yet, but I plan to make it for Noah’s baptism party.  I found it on a website called Cooking Hawaiian Style.  It makes a lot, and will be perfect for a hot summer get together.  It’s loaded with Italian flavors.  The recipe calls for “Harpo’s” Italian Dressing, which is a local, Hawaiian brand.  I’m going to try using a creamy Italian dressing and see how that works.

  2. These all look delish! Thanks for sharing them. So sorry to hear you are melting down there. How are the horses doing? We are getting kinda waterlogged here. Our river is crazy high and for a few days there was fear of a bad flood in our town but it is slowly going down. If it wasn’t for the high berms is would have flooded and been really, really, bad. Stay cool!!
