5 Favorite Summer Salads

Tomato + Basil SaladThis summer Jeremy and I have been enjoying daily homemade salads. We've been experimenting with different combination and I thought I would share a few of our favorites with you! 

Tomato + Basil Salad/ I made this salad on a bed of spinach and arugula. It has pesto mixed in, a splash of balsamic vinegar, fresh basil leaves, local tomatoes and chopped macadamia nuts. I love this one because I'm on a basil kick! 

Artichoke + Apple Salad
Artichoke + Apple Salad/ This salad is served on a bed of Arugula (my fave) and it has granny smith apples (half and apple, sliced), sunflower seeds, sesame seeds blue cheese dressing and artichoke hearts. It's delicious. 

Blue Cheese and Pea SaladBlue Cheese and Peas Salad/ This salad is on a bed of spinach and butter lettuce. It has blue cheese dressing, avocados, tomatoes, sesame seeds and peas. (i LOVE peas!)

Curry + Fig Kale SaladCurry + Fig Kale Salad/ I never thought I would grow to love raw kale, but it happened! I love raw kale most when it is marinated in a salad dressing for an hour or two. This is a good salad to make in advance and then refrigerate. My favorite salad dressing is Curry + Fig by Salad Girl. Also in this salad is a little spinach, broccoli and tomatoes. 

Hearts of Palm + Pesto SaladHearts of Palm + Pesto Salad/ This salad is simply arugula (see a trend? i'm obsessed), tomatoes and hearts of palm with pesto mixed in. So yummy! 

I don't see our salad obsession ending anytime soon. Do you have a favorite recipe? Please share. XO elsie
