Ok, so salad is one of those things that doesn’t really feel like it needs a recipe to me and I feel a little weird posting a “recipe” for a salad. I love salad and love how easy it is to just throw things together to make a great meal. But, sometimes I know I need some inspiration in my salads. I tend to get stuck making the same salad combo’s over and over again. So, here are two different salads that where new combinations for me and I thought you all might like them as well.
Enjoy the salad inspiration!
Bitter Summer Salad
This salad was our lunch a few days ago and we both really liked it. It was one of those meals where I was just trying to use up what I had left in the fridge before our trip, but it came together so well that I thought I’d share it with you all today.
- Cooked (cold) quinoa
- Cooked (cold) millet
- Tahini Dressing (or any other dressing of your choosing)
Mix all ingredients (as much as you want of each) to make a lovely fresh, bitter tasting salad.
Green Summer Salad
I made this salad for a BBQ on 4th of July. It was so refreshing to have some fresh raw veggies after being out in the sun at the beach all morning. I loved this and thought you might too.
- Roman Lettuce
- Green Apple
- Sunflower seeds
Mix all ingredients (as much as you want of each) and top with a light dressing of your choice. I made a little dressing with olive oil and lime juice and it was perfect. Enjoy this fresh green combination on a hot summer day.
