With the warmer days here I have been thinking about salads a lot more! Salads are amazingly versatile in that they can contain so many different things from your basic lettuce, cucumber and tomato salad to your chicken salad, to your potato salads, etc., they can be served either hot or cold and they can be everything from a side dish to a main course. After a long hot summer day I somethings do not feel like cooking, eating a hot meal or a heavy meal and a light, cool and crisp salad can be the perfect solution. As it happens summer is also a great time for salads as there are so many fresh vegetables and fruits that can be used in them. One of the things that I like most about salads in the summer is the progression and changing ingredients as new vegetables and fruits become available every week. After thinking about salads so much I figured that it was about time that I gathered my favourites and shared them with you and below you have 30 of them along with a few tasty dressings!
