I always have a hard time coming up with side dishes. Yes, I know cracking open a can of veggies works or a salad, but sometimes I want to break OUT of that mold and come up with something different.

Summertime is a bit easier. Corn on the cob. Watermelon. Pasta salad. Cucumbers and tomatoes. Yum!

Here are a few SALAD recipes to add to the summer list:

-Cucumber Salad This is a light and easy salad with few ingredients.

-BLT Pasta Salad Yum. This salad takes your regular, run-of-the-mill BLT and makes it either a side or a meal.

-Black Bean and Corn Salad I make a version of this..and it is SO GOOD! Anything with black beans and corn is a winner in my book!

-Potato Salad I’ve had my share of good potato salads, but doesn’t this look amazing? Must try it soon.

-Chopper Salad. This is one of my recipes from my food blog. I love it. Some may call it Cauliflower and Broccoli salad. The difference between the Chopper and the Cauli/Broc is the size of the veggies. The picture below is of the Cauli/Broc salad. When we make it? We chop them down. It’s good!
